THE Torremolinos town council on Tuesday gave initial approval to the town’s local development plan (PGOU), which lays out future land use and development. Among other things, the plan – which will now go to the Junta de Andalucía for final sign-off – opens the way for a huge mall planned by British shopping centre giant Intu Properties, owner of the Trafford Centre.
The PGOU dates from 1996 but has been updated and adapted to the Andalucía Land Law (LOUA). Its approval by the council comes after corrections were made to address problems previously detected by the Junta, including adapting parts of the PGOU to regional flood-risk plans.
