And unbelievably these Mayors are still trying to hold on to their little ‘gold mine’ of brown envelopes by objecting to a new plan to help halt corruption.
13 Mayors across Málaga province have voiced objections to the Junta’s new POT territorial plan.
The plan is designed to restrict and control development across the region from now until the year 2018. The Mayors consider the plan would restrict the development of their municipalities too greatly and invade their responsibilities.
The Junta contends the restrictions are needed.
The objections are led by the PP Mayor of Alhaurín de la Torre, Joaquín Villanova, who himself has already been charged with corruption and perversion of the course of justice.
Other challenges have been placed by Mayors of Benalmádena and Torremolinos on the coast, Alhaurín el Grande, Cártama, Pizarra, Álora and Coin in the Guadalhorce valley.
Smaller villages in the Montes de Málaga area have also voiced objections as in the cases of Casabermeja, Almogía and Totalán as well as Rincón de la Victoria.
These Mayors consider the new POT takes over areas which are their own responsibility. 🙁
But surely that is the whole idea. 🙄
If this new plan is enforced and the local Mayors’ hands consequently tied, just maybe a halt will be put on the slow destruction of this part of Spain.
But what’s the betting it will still go on.
