The mayor, Ángeles Muñoz, confirmed today that the classic boat race ‘Puerto Banus Solidarity Challenge 2015-2018’ will “reinforce the Marbella brand for next year”.
Muñoz explained during the presentation of the event that the tournament will extend through to 2018 and it brings together a sense of solidarity, tourism, culture and sport as part of an exclusive competition for which Puerto Banus will be “the sole setting”.
The changes proposed by the franchisee for the extension project at La Bajadilla Port cannot be assumed by the Administration. That is the response that the Public Ports Agency of Andalucia (APPA) has given to the request made by the company Naas Marbella to change the original project with which the franchise was obtained.
In a recent meeting held with the franchisee’s senior management, the agency that forms part of the Junta’s Ministry for Development specifically informed them that the extension to the number of car parking spaces was not viable, as it involved a substantial modification of the project and would require town planning changes.
Building work now begins to renovate the Marbella Arch after the rockfalls that took place for the first time in October of 2013 and which required the implementation of a protective net in February. A definitive solution is now being undertaken and the building work will last one and a half months.
The Town Council of Marbella has begun the renovation of all the town’s informative billboards, whose image will be standardised to signpost, also in English, the town’s main facilities, public and emergency services, as well as golf courses, industrial estates and urbanizations. The novelty will be inclusion of hotels, as usually happens in the most touristic towns.
This Friday, the Mayor of Marbella, Ángeles Muñoz, presented the new informative and also advertising billboards that will be distributed throughout the town and which will serve to provide a more ordered and modern image for the town.
The Mayor, Ms Angeles Muñoz, accompanied by the President of the Provincial Government Mr Elias Bendodo, visited the section between Arroyo Segundo and Arroyo Pozuelo today, which will extend the Paseo Maritimo in easterly direction.
