The town hall in Benalmádena has announced a new project that will involve the redevelopment of the Los Nadales district of Benalmádena Pueblo. The scheme will include the creation of an 11,000 square metre park, along with 325 new homes, of which 75 will be used for social housing. In addition, the revitalisation of the area, which is currently run down and abandoned, will include new road infrastructure, green areas, recreational spaces and shops.
The project was first proposed as part of the town's PGOU (general plan) in 2012, but it was shelved due to complications. Benalmádena town hall has now revised the general plan - which received initial approval in the August plenary meeting - and is now hoping to receive the green light from the Junta de Andalucía.
Councillor for Urban Planning, Oscar Ramundo, said, "We have revived the project, analysed it, and have now proposed the new amendments. This is a very interesting proposal, since, not only would it develop an area that is quite untidy but it will also create an environmentally friendly green area in the centre of our village."
