THE FINESTRAT car-park has reopened its doors following resurfacing works on the basement storey floor.
Mayor Juan Francisco Perez, Parking councillor Tomas Selles and Public Works councillor Jose Vicene Lloret went to take a look at the result of the works this week.
During the visit the Mayor clarified that from now on the basement storey will be designated for spaces which are rented while floor 0 will be free parking.
Perez explained that the council had decided to open the car-park now even though the works have not been still not completely finished, there still being some painting to be done.
He underlined that the local authority has spent close to €100,000 on the resurfacing, which he said had been necessary due to damp and a construction defect which was causing problems.
The Mayor also said the council had taken advantage of the resurfacing measures to change the accessibility to the car-park, pointing out the basement storey for the rented spaces now has a barrier and opening systems with a key.
Perez issued a reminder that under the modification to the bylaw agreed at the last council plenary meeting “municipal parking will continue being free for all residents and tourists which visit Finistrat.
“There will only be a charge for those people who have rental contract for night-time”, he stressed, adding that the tariff is €33 + Vat, with a 15 per cent discount for the retired, unemployed and under-25s.
The municipal car-park opened its doors in 2007. There are 202 spaces, six for drivers with a disability and seven for mopeds and motorbikes.
Two years ago the upper floor storey was resurfaced.
