  • JB,
    As I understand it, the opposition party denunced Juan Gorrin's party over some missing paper work.
    Lidl would like the site to be cleared by August so they can start buiding their store with a view to opening before the end of 2013.
    If this drags on there is a possibility that Lidl will walk away from it, leaving Puerto Santiago also without its much needed medical centre & underground carpark.

  • Without prejudice. After reading the report in News in the Sun which confirms what el presidente has said, however in a little more detail, one can only assume that the council or ayuntamiento are not fit for purpose. It is little wonder therefore that Santiago del Teide council are without monies. Our mayor seems to court controversy whichever side he plays for.

  • Would it be premature to add this to my list under Reply #27, dated 14 April, to "I love Los Gigantes - HOWEVER!"?

  • Indeed Juan we are the same wavelength commenting on an inept ayuntamiento. Little wonder we have no dinero.

  • Another aspect of this debacle is the number of much needed local jobs this would  create if they got their finger out.
