BENAGALBON’S political representatives have requested help to make the town’s coastal area become a tourism attraction.
Torre de Benalgabon is currently the only area of Rincon de la Victoria left without a proper built seafront, along its almost 3.5 kilometres of beaches, from the Granadillas to the Santillan rivers as it currently only displays an unpaved path.
The project for Benagalbon’s seafront has been pending for more than a year, and it is one of the main projects of the different governing teams which have graced the town’s Council during the past years.
By the end of last year, a project was drafted by the consultant company Estudio 7 in Sevilla, which priced the seafront project at almost €5 million. However, the project was rejected by the town council and several ecological associations, as well as all the opposing political forces.
After Encarnacion Anaya became the town’s mayor back in the May elections, she committed to reactivate this project which is to be paid for by the Spanish Environment ministry.
Now the town mayor together with other members of the provincial and local regional government has requested from the national government to collaborate with the town council and put forward amendments to the general national budget for 2016, to include the project within it. The amendment includes the allocation of at least €1 million for the project and is currently being discussed at the Congress.
