The Consejo de Gobierno of the Junta de Andalucía approved yesterday the contentious “Plan de Ordenación del Territorio del Levante Almeriense (POTALA)”, which covers an area between Los Gallardos, Turre, Mojacar, Garrucha and Vera, contemplating the construction of a city the size of Redditch, England (or Ferrol, Galicia), with some 30,000 homes. It is expected to create 130,000 jobs and has an investment of 5,000,000,000€. The name of the new city is currently “Llano Central”.
For the plans they didn’t want you to see, click here. Don’t forget that the POTALA is a regional plan ranging from Carboneras to Huercal Overa (exclusing the Almanzora valley, whatever the EuroWeekly says), and Llano Central is the macrourbanisation contemplated in the windy dry bit next to Valle del Este.
The city is expected to be comprised of 25,000 luxury homes and flats attractively placed around (public) golf courses, 5 star hotels and swimming pools. Much like El Toyo was in Almería, a place now regarded as sliding towards being considered a ghetto, with unbuilt flats, no infrastructure, raising crime and no upkeep by the authorities.
