Lunatic plan for Los Gigantes!

    Any one else heard of the lunatic plan to only allow resident parking in los gigs? If what I have heard is true then no amount of cheep flights will save Los Gigantes. The powers that be seem hell bent on finishing off the place, if put into force, then no unauthorized vehicles would be allowed into the village. You would be required to park your car or hire car outside and be bussed in. Now this may just be the village gossip machine gone mad, but I am told there is a document going around that explains it all. Anyone got a copy please send it to borrisydorris@losgigntes.com. Or enquiries@losgigantes.com

    Email received from Gigs 28th September 2007
    Some information would be hugely appreciated on the forum, about
    this insane proposal to ban all vehicles from the village except residents
    and workers. Surely this is a nightmare of a joke? What about taxis? What
    about apartment owners who aren't officially resident here? What about
    people renting? Do they realise this will completely destroy the village,
    its property prices, and its businesses? They must be certifiable! Please
    tell us this is a sick joke!
    Keep up the good work,


    I am trying to get to the bottom of this and I am totally confused.  One reliable source tells us it is true, and another, equally reliable source, tell us it is a load of rubbish.  I am trying to find out more.

  • Well itquote s finally been announced.

    ldblquote As from 1st August 2008, Residents and Workers  of the Los  Gigantes Community will be eligible to apply for an annual parking  permit allowing them  to legally park their vehicles within the Los Gigantes Community  Boundary. The annual charge for each parking permit will be 150 Euros per vehicle. Residents owning more than one vehicle will be eligible for a discount of 5 Euros for each additional vehicle permit.

    The permit will take the form of a badge to be displayed on the inside of the vehicle windscreen.

    Non- residents are not eligible to apply for the parking permit.  Provision will be made within the public car park at Puerto Santiago for the vehicles of visitors to Los Gigantes who wish to participate in the official Park and Ride Scheme.

    A vehicle parked anywhere (including on private property) within the Los Gigantes Community Boundary which does not properly display the official badge will be clamped.  Its driver will be required to surrender his or her passport until such time as the required 300 Euro fine is paid  plus a penalty of 20 Euros per day. If settlement is not made within one week, the vehicle will be impounded and sold by public auction without compensation and its owner will be severely beaten.dblquote

    A tourist was seen today in Los Gigantes and a dummy run training exercise led by the Mayor, swung into action to test the operation of the proposed scheme. Unfortunately, the tourist did not have the required parking permit.

  • I'm really excited about this.  I will get to drive one of these funny three-wheeler thingies (see photo attached by Falstaff) and throw tomatoes at the guy in the stocks!  Will there be any restriction on taking the buggies out of town?  I would love to go off-road on some of the mountain trails.

  • Ho Ho very funny Falstaff, but not that helpful.

    The following is official:-

    The losgigantes.com office has been officially asked by Councillor Steve McKenna, of the Santiago del Teide Council, to inform the residents of Los Gigantes, that they have absolutely No plans to bring in parking restrictions, of any description in the area, other than those currently in force i.e. yellow lines.

    They have plans which they proposed at the last elections to build a multi story car park in a location near Poblado Marinero but this project was still being assessed
