Marbella council misses the boat on Cabopino port

  • The Junta says that, due to delays, a temporary contract of four years was put out to tender last year but the council didn't apply

Bureaucracy continues to blight the upkeep of Cabopino marina despite Marbella council's wish to take over running the port.

Only basic upkeep is being done while the Junta de Andalucía, which owns the site, sets up a tender process for a new long-term licencee after the last concession expired two years ago.

Now the Junta says that, due to delays, a temporary contract of four years was put out to tender last year but the council didn't apply.

That concession is also being disputed by one of the applicants.
