Decalogue of Measures
(Approved in assembly 10/3/17)
Press release (02.04.2020)
1.- The nullification of the urban planning agreement between Nerja Council and Sociedad Azucarera Larios SA, specifically the sections related to the debts accrued by Nerja Council with the company through the Urban Development Plans in the Maro area proposed by SALSA. A Council cannot exchange debts for urban planning and land reclassification.
2.- A Debt audit to be performed by the Citizen Debt Audit Platform (PACD) to verify the amount claimed by SALSA. Once verified, a payment plan must be made that does not harm public interests or cause social cuts.
3.- The Halting of modification of the protections contemplated in the current General Urban Planning Plan of Nerja (PGOU) and the Special Plan for the Protection of the Historic Site of the Maro Picturesque Landscape (PEPSHPPM) in the area to adapt it to the urban planning wishes of SALSA.
4.- The Addition of the architectural remains of the 'Pavilion' of the Pérez del Pulgar in the Pago de las Mercedes, and the entire area of the plot on which it is located to the Catalog of Protected commons of the PGOU as 'General Systems of Free Areas and Social Use'.
5.- The implementation of a Special Protection Plan (PEP) for the "Pago de Mercedes". The area contains heritage assets of interest such as the San Joaquín factory, the Pavilion, the footpaths and the old road to Almuñécar, the Roman road 'Cástulo-Malaca', the irrigation channels and conduits, and the historical subdivision of the land. We consider the 'Pago de las Mercedes and Maro' to be a 'Landscape of Andalusian Cultural Interest' (PICA) linked to agricultural and industrial production for more than 400 years. The demarcation limits are: to the east, the Maro barranco; to the west, the Burriana barranco; to the south, the sea; and to the north; the old road from Malaga to Almuñécar.
6.- The Application of the determinations contained in the PGOU in relation to the expropriations of the Casa de la Marquesa in Maro, the Maro or Armengol sugar factory, and the San Joaquín factory. These heritage assets, once valued and assigned, will form yet another attraction for the development of environmental and cultural tourism that will undoubtedly revitalise Maro's economy by becoming a starting point for cultural, rural and mountain hiking, with an information Center for our natural and cultural values.
7.- The Realization of a coastal public footpath adapted to the orography of the land between Burriana and the Torre de Maro, as allowed by the Protection Plan for the Andalusian Littoral Corridor (PPCLA), using traditional paths whenever possible. The Pavilion parcel at the edge of a cliff would act as an exceptional scenic viewpoint for recreational public use. The viewpoints that contemplate the PEPSHPN-Maro would complement the scenic route of the trail.
8.- The obligation of Larios to facilitate the cleaning of agricultural waste, the preservation of the salubrity of the environment and the avoidance of eyesore constructions throughout the area, which is currently seriously deteriorated due to its intentional neglect. Likewise, we demand a competent administration that obliges compliance with the regulations in these matters.
9.- Negotiate the length of the agricultural plot leases with Larios (currently nine months) and extend it for a period sufficient for the investment made by the tenants to be profitable. Authorize the planting of subtropical trees.
10.- The installation of a processing centre and warehouse for the composting of pruning and biological remains derived from agricultural labor in the northern area of the pago de mercedes bordering the motorway.
The creation of an Information and Assistance Office for farmers on new crops; aid for cooperatives and the offering of peri-urban gardens of social economy. The creation of a network of producers and consumers of local products.
