  • The town hall has announced that a similar budget will be allocated for this type of project in future years

The 2019-2020 Plan de Urbanizaciones, set out by Marbella's town council, will have completed all the planned works in residential areas before the year comes to a close. Despite being outlined as a two-year plan, the council and the mayor, Ángeles Muñoz, have explained that the works are progressing well and should be finished much earlier than originally expected.

More than 70 per cent of the planned works in residential areas of Marbella have already been completed. The construction project has included around 25,000 square metres of new pavement and 7,000 square metres of tarmac, cables for street lighting and other services. Improvements have been made to residential areas across the town.

Muñoz has also expressed her governing team's intention to assign a similar budget to improve residental areas in future years. The 2019-2020 plan assigned 2.7 million euros for the works carried out in 2019, and a further 300,000 euros to those planned for 2020, which will now instead be completed before the end of this year.

The mayor has confirmed that 25 of the scheduled works have already been executed, leaving just a further 15 for the rest of this year. "The larger projects will be completed in the next two or three months, and the smaller ones will be finished in the next few weeks," she explained.

Muñoz has said that with this construction plan, Marbella council has demonstrated its commitment to the 800 residential areas in the town. "When I had the opportunity to meet homeowners in these areas, we showed the effort we are making to act in districts which have historically not been considered a true part of Marbella," she said.
