Catral’s mayor Pedro Zaplana has slammed the council’s previous Partido Popular administration for not paying legal fines and settlements when they were in charge, which is leaving the current council budgets short. Independent mayor Zaplana who leads a coalition government team said that all kinds of claims for unpaid building work dating back up to a decade have been appearing, as well as successful legal action taken by residents against the previous PP administration.

Zaplana said that the council have had to pay out 570 thousand euros in the last three years for lawsuits that nothing to do with them, and that unpaid debts had led to interest payments of 220 thousand euros.
