COASTAL towns across Malaga Province are demanding €70 million from the EU in order to improve their urban areas, improve energy efficiency, as well as promote social and employment programmes.
The aim is to help conurbations across the Costa bolster sustainable development and in turn offer a better life quality to residents. The allocation of European funds for developing Spanish towns is possible through the Sustainable Town Planning Development Strategic Plan.
In order to be in with a shot of receiving the funds, towns must create their own plan with suggestions of areas they wish to improve or develop. Estepona, Marbella, Benalmadena, Torremolinos, Velez-Malaga and Nerja have already submitted their proposals.
