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.
