Playa de Valdevaqueros – Not in danger

Playa de Valdevaqueros
Tarifa development plans

Having been provided with an article from the Tarifa town hall I have to correct  the article I printed earlier.

It seems the development is planned for the other side of the main road and no plans have been submitted for development on the beach side.

The statement accuse the media and social media groups of damaging the reputation of the area which could in turn affect tourism in the area, which of course was not my intention.

You can see the statement here: Statement from Tarfia Town Hall (in Spanish).

It’s still not a good idea if you ask me. It’s too close to the beach. Construction creates waste, mess, noise and general disruption. That close to a nature reserve is surely not a good idea.

So, my apologies for the incorrect information.

    I saw that photo in the article, now the part that is the head-scratcher is this: isn’t this a NATURE RESERVE? Why would they be allowed to build on a nature reserve? Or is that also in question?

    I still vote no on the development — too close to something that should and was apparently already directed to be saved as pristine…

    I don’t see Spain, and this area specifically as needing another hotel, development, or another golf course!

    Regardless of whether they built on the shoreline or a kilometre back, it will set a precedent which will surely see the whole of that coastline destroyed over time.

    I’ve yet to see the fiscal and environmental study that suggests this project is beneficial to the town but common sense tells me any benefit will be short-lived and really only a few will make any real profit from this, at the cost of destroying what should be a protected coastline.

    Surely there are other ways to generate employment in the area without destroying the very thing that attracts people from all over the world to it?
