  • The aim is to guarantee the land on which the theme park stands for use for tourism infrastructure for perpetuity

The mayor of Benalmádena, Víctor Navas, has said he wants the Junta de Andalucía to give extra planning protection to the land currently occupied by the popular Tivoli World amusement park to prevent any housing development speculation in the future.

Recognising the importance of the park for the resort, he has asked experts at Malaga University to look at ways that regional planning law can be applied beyond existing protection in the council's own town plan.
