Nerja town hall has revealed that the central government has requested seven million euros to be paid back over a period of 25 years for the hand-over of the long-anticipated sewage treatment plant.

Nerja mayor José Alberto Armijo described the announcement from the government as "an unexpected and unpleasant surprise".

The additional money, which will ultimately affect Nerja and Maro residents' water bills, will be "damaging when the financial impact of the plant will already be noticed when it goes into service," Armijo said.

The plant is expected to finish the testing stage in April.
