20 thousand euros has been spent on clearing up piles of rubbish that has been dumped in Torrevieja’s La Hoya area close to the International Auditorium. The Información newspaper reports that the work was authorised by the site developer La Unión Temporal de Empresas after a series of complaints over fly-tipping during the summer.
In July, the developer was reported as getting ready to put forward formal planning permission requests for the building of a seven and a half thousand properties in La Hoya, after Torrevieja council told them to get on with the project, or lose their rights to the area.
The proposed new estate is the largest building project on the table in Alicante Province, and the last major piece of building land allocated in Torrevieja. It’s not clear whether the clearance work was a “sweetener” for the council ahead of any future move from the developer.
