A PEACE pact has been agreed by warring neighbours.
The Association of Neighbours and Friends of Santa Catalina has signed an “agreement of coexistence” with businesses in the area after a row over noise and disturbance.
The agreement has been reached with the Restaurants and Leisure Association of Santa Catalina and the Municipal Market to try to create a way forward to prevent future conflict.
President of the Association of Neighbours and Friends of Santa Catalina, Jacinta Galindo, explained that the aim was to create harmony and understanding between all three parties.
MrGalindo said: “The signatory entities are committed to ensure the care of the environment, respect the rest of the neighbours, promote local products, support the small and medium business of the neighbourhood, and improve relations between neighbours and institutions.”
There has been confrontation throughout the summer between restaurant owners and residents over noise and obstruction from the terraces throughout the area.
This agreement is to allow the parties to work together and states an understanding that “Santa Catalina is a district where most of its development is based on leisure and the market and we have to understand each other.”
