The mayor of Mijas, Juan Carlos Maldonado, and the councillor for Operational Services, José Carlos Martín, on Monday visited the area known as 'El Llano' in La Cala where work to turn the area into a car park had just been completed .
More than 500 cars can now park in the area which has been levelled using compacted artificial gravel as a way to "offer a better service to residents," according to Maldonado. He added that the council had hoped to tarmac the area but the appropriate permission was not granted by the Junta de Andalucía regional government. Despite this, he added: "The surface is in very good condition for the parking of cars and for the activities that are carried out here."
The works cost a total of 10,000 euros and took two weeks.
