The disused building next to Fuengirola's port that was once used my McDonald's is to be turned into a tourist information and visitor centre. The council has voted on a plan to restore the building, which has been empty for several years.

Local people were calling for something to be done about the eyesore and opposition politicians had called on the council to speed up its plans to rehabilitate the site.

The building is on designated coastal land so any change of use or development has to be approved by the Junta de Andalucía regional government.

Both the mayor, Ana Mula, and councillor for Tourism, Rodrigo Romero, have said that the council has been working on the idea for a while and now needs to send the proposal to the Junta.
