TORREVIEJA residents called for more control over bar and restaurants’ tables and chairs along the promenades

Fees for occupying public spaces have been waived since the pandemic, prompting complaints that businesses are taking up more space than they should.

This was particularly noticeable in Paseo Juan Aparicio where tables and chairs often surrounded the benches overlooking the sea, they said.

The town hall rejected residents’ claims, telling the local Spanish media that they have received few complaints and were unaware of any situations “that need correcting.”
