Torrevieja’s Virgen del Carmen centre reopened on Monday after a fifteen day closure over safety issues which have been addressed by the council, who blamed the previous Partido Popular administration for not having gone through the appropriate procedures before the building opened a decade ago. Councillor Fanny Serrano said that the safety of visitors was paramount, and a health and safety plan is being produced for the building. Meanwhile, 24 employees still based in the Teatro Municipal have had to be moved after they continued to work in the building despite it also being closed down for licensing reasons. The reopening of that site will take considerably longer, and so the employees have been placed in other municipal premises. The council have also announced that they are looking at alternative uses for the Music Auditorium, with the 53 million euro building currently costing 360 thousand euros per year to be kept closed, as it was deemed unsuitable for the purpose that it was designed for.
