  • The aim of this project is to encourage "traditional commerce" in the town

Rincón de la Victoria councillors agreed during a plenary session last Monday that they would ask the regional government, the Junta de Andalucía, for 438,000 euros towards pedestrianising three roads in the town centre.

Calle Frigiliana, Calle Ronda and Carril de Domínguez make up a major part of the shopping area of Rincón de la Victoria and the aim of this project is to encourage "traditional commerce" in the town.

According to town hall sources, the money from the Junta de Andalucía would top up European Union Regional Development funding (ERDF) already received by Rincón de la Victoria last year.

President of the town's trade and commerce association (ACERV), José Antonio Villodres, said that the town had been waiting for "many years" for this kind of initiative.
