OPPOSITION has been raised to the plans to expand the Alcudiamar marina in Puerto Alcudia.
The Alcudiamar company believes that it would be a ‘serious mistake’ if the town hall were to prevent the plans to expand the marina by 12,000 square metres with an investment of €21 million.
It involves renovating existing facilities and the creation of a new dry dock. However, the town hall is divided on the matter. El Pi and PSOE, who together have a majority, want the investment but in a different way.
The councillor from Gent Alcudia who was brought into the administration and given the environment portfolio, is against the project. The company has been the concessionaire for the marina for more than 25 years and said the project meets environmental and port controls and would be a pioneering marina in terms of the environment.
Studies have concluded that beach conservation and the bay of Alcudia would not be harmed.
