  • Marbella council are hoping the new plan will motivate improvements to the town

Nearly three years ago, Marbella's town plan which was drawn up in 2010, was declared invalid, forcing the local government to go back to the 1986 urban plan and stop granting construction licences.

Although the local government attempted to get a modified version of the plan passed on three attempts it was finally approved, after several corrections and adaptations, in September last year and has now come into force although it was already being used for consultation.

Marbella council are hoping the new plan will motivate improvements to the town.
