Greenpeace called on the independent Mayor-elect of Carboneras this Thursday to rectify the ‘errors’ of his Socialist predecessor as Mayor and declare the land where the Algarrobico Hotel has been built as unsuitable for development.

The environmental organisation said Carboneras has become an ‘example of coastal destruction’, and asked Salvador Hernández to reverse the ‘obsolete policies of excessive and illegal development’. They said it’s time now to correct errors and draw up a new PGOU development plan for Carboneras to promote rural tourism.

Salvador Hernández, from the Gicar party, is Mayor-elect until Friday, when the new council is constituted thanks to a governing pact with the Partido Popular. He told Teleprensa Almería that the situation of the Algarrobico is outside municipal responsibilityas the Environment Ministry is currently negotiating on the matter with the owners, Azata del Sol.
