DETAILS were announced on Tuesday with regard to the specific zoning plans for 98 streets of the City Centre and five of Teatinos which aims to end the problem of noise in Malaga. The closing hours of the terraces were brought forward by up to an hour and a half and so businesses with a terrace must now begin to close these at 12:30 p.m. Monday through Friday, and 1 a.m on Saturdays and Sundays (in spring and summer it will be extended until 1 a.m. and 1:30 a.m. respectively).
Another of the measures will be that hospitality businesses with and without music and leisure and entertainment establishments located in the areas subject to the declaration must have doors and windows closed after 11 p.m.
Not only that, but the establishments must designate a person who is responsible for ensuring that visitors when entering, leaving or staying outside the premises, do not disturb the neighbourhood. Once the closing time has arrived, the establishments must be completely empty and closed within 20 minutes.
The Zoning Department also plans to intensify the controls of the Local Police, “which should preferably be on foot during the night hours in order to avoid crowds of people and acts of violence and vandalism”
