THE opposition party in Rincon de la Victoria has denounced the lack of planning from the town hall in regards to the installation of kiosks on the seafront which should have been operational last weekend to take advantage of the Easter holiday period.
Public Streets councillor Pedro Fernandez Ibar responded to the accusations, stating that no applicants for kiosks had complained.
Altogether, there are 21 kiosks which people can apply to run, Fernandez explained, and the problem was caused by the early arrival of Easter, as the normal application period runs from February to one week before Easter. The fact that Easter was in March this year meant that there was less time to process applications than in other years.
The kiosk planning is not yet included in Rincon’s new Beach Plan, although the council is working on it.
At the moment the kiosks fall under the banner of Public Streets and Beaches.
