Government Gives Thumbs Up To New Cala de Mijas hotel
LA CALA de Mijas has been given the green light for the start of construction of a new hotel in the centre of the town.
The announcement comes as the Councillor for Urban Planning Andrés Ruiz makes a push to firmly plant the Andalucian town on the tourist map.
Following a year of planning and organisation hurdles, the local council has given the construction project the green light as confirmation has been issued to technicians to provide a detailed study of the sight.
The permission has been granted for a 20-room hotel, no taller than 12.5 metres situated on Calle Tolox.
Ruiz said: “As part of our General Plan, we have committed to locating plots of land such as these for hotel use; this can give a major boost to the local economy.”
“Being able to increase our hotel offering is always good news,” added Ruiz, “because tourism is the biggest economic driver for our town.”
The total investment for the hotel is €400,000 and will bolster the already blossoming tourist trade in the area.
The news comes as Mijas council has announced that it is turning an 1840 Mijas Pueblo property into a four apartment hotel on the Plaza de la Constitución.
