Roads project JAVEA town hall completed its €662,749 programme of resurfacing 70 of the municipality’s streets and roads, particularly those in outlying areas.  This has been carried out in phases during low season periods when the roadworks were less likely to disturb residents and visitors, said Services councillor Kika Mata.  

Bicycle Day THE 37th edition of Benidorm’s Bicycle Day will be held on March 27 over a seven-kilometre route starting and finishing at the Foietes park auditorium. Registering beforehand is not necessary and participants, who are reminded that helmets must be worn, can do so at the Auditorium at 9.30am.  

You choose VILLAJOYOSA residents and local associations can submit ideas for the municipality’s Participatory Budget on the website until April 4. A shortlist of the most popular suggestions, which should be of general interest and centre on projects within the town hall’s remit, will be announced after April 24.

Class act BENIDORM’S Education department will not open a class for two year olds at the La Cala primary school, despite Generalitat authorisation.  The town hall decided against the class, alleging that it was likely to be filled with toddlers from nearby Finestrat and Villajoyosa whose parents work in Benidorm.

Not here CALPE town hall and the local fishing guild announced that they would challenge the Generalitat’s decision to authorise the expansion of the existing fish farm.  Extending the installation would have a serious effect on tourism and would be detrimental both to marine biodiversity and the fishing fleet’s catches.
