Malaga council plans to limit the opening of new bars in the city centre

  • The aim is a balance between business growth and residential use of the area

The city hall plans to place restrictions on where new bars can open after a study found the centre to be saturated with bars.

The aim is to create a harmonious balance between the hospitality sector, which is undergoing tremendous growth, and residential and commercial uses of the area.

Following the success of a directive implemented several months ago in order to protect green areas and wildlife in the city, this second complementary scheme hopes to strike a balance between areas that have played a significant role in local history and heritage and the expansion of businesses in the city centre.

Councillors are also considering extending the scheme to the districts of El Palo and Teatinos.
