LA MARINA: Parts of this Elche beach are gradually eroding

The situation in El Pinet is particularly serious, where waves are now reaching seafront buildings
These three areas belong to Elche and residents have rejected the solution put forward by the city’s mayor, Carlos Gonzalez, who insists that the eroded beaches should regenerate naturally.
Several residents’ associations have joined forces as they seek solutions for what they described as the “brutal” regression of Elche’s beaches.
They are now calling for immediate action from coastal authority Costas, attached to the central government’s Environment Ministry, as well as Elche city hall. Both are “indifferent” according to the associations.
They also want to participate with city hall in a specific working committee that can ensure ongoing dialogue between all involved and to back their claims that Costas is treating Elche’s beaches differently from others elsewhere.
