THE Save Lo Ferris campaign group has taken their campaign to protect Torrevieja’s beautiful palm-groved Lo Ferris area to the EU.
They are still fighting to have the so-called ‘wall of shame’ that occupies part of a public walkway removed, as previously reported in the Euro Weekly News, and have now sent a letter to the petitions committee of the European Union calling for protection of the palm grove.
There are concerns that building works will eventually get the go ahead in the area, although the town hall has said they are opposed to any such plans.
Mayor Jose Manuel Dolon, has asked for an ecological study of the palm grove, but the pressure group is demanding urgent protection and garnering more and more public support for their cause.
The area features a unique variety of flora and fauna and has been deemed worthy of conservation by ecologists.
