Mijas denies holding up project to build groynes on its beaches

  • The municipality's town hall were accused of “blocking the project” in a recent council meeting

Ruling councillors in Mijas have reacted angrily to accusations from the opposition PP group that they are holding up plans to build breakwaters on the area’s beaches to stop sand erosion.

In a recent council meeting, the town hall had been accused of “blocking the project”. The PP says that the scheme to build a 150-metre semi-submerged breakwater on Butiplaya beach in La Cala and groynes in Calahonda (that it had proposed when in power in 2015) had gone nowhere under the new Ciudadanos and PSOE administration.

However councillor for Infrastructure, José Carlos Martín, has released documents to SUR that show that the council continues to pursue the project and is still waiting for a reaction to the plans from the environment ministry.
