Proximity to the new park has started to encourage the sale of flats and premises in the area and to push up prices.

The Starbucks chain has opened its third shop in the province in the Costa Marbella shopping centre in Puerto Banus, following the one already in operation in El Corte Inglés in Málaga and at the airport Pablo Ruiz Picasso.

The Town Council has introduced a bye-law that will regulate the implementation within the municipality of radio-electric infrastructures, in force since the beginning of the month, and the Plan for the Rollout of Mobile Telephony Antennae of the Territorial Information System of Marbella (SITMA).
The Director for Innovation, Baldomero León, introduced both initiatives and stated that “the objective sought by the Town Council is for telecommunications within the municipality to be developed expeditiously, whilst always remaining committed to the urban landscape and the environment”.
The Mayor of Marbella, Ángeles Muñoz, discussed cooperation initiatives with the Ambassador of the Philippines in Spain, Carlos Salinas, as part of an official reception that took place at the Town Council.

To this effect, she emphasized the importance of carrying out “mutual collaboration” campaigns on town census registration or to ensure “greater awareness of the municipal environment.”
