So, if they clear all parking from the marina the bars and restaurants will loose too much trade.
Don't agree Dolly - I too would prefer to see the harbour front pedestrianised - its not too relaxing sitting at the bars down by the harbour staring up the exhaust pipe of cars that are parked just a couple of feet away from where you are drinking/eating - the vehicles also block the view of the boats in the harbour.
I believe if the area was restricted for pedestrians only say after 10.00am (prior to that time allowing delivery vehicles only) there would be an increase of customers to the bars etc improving business in that area. I do have some sympathy for boat owners as more often than not they do have a need for easy access to their motor vehicles for transfering fishing/diving equipment or what have you from one to tuther
Where will all the boat owners park? There is little enough parking in the village without restricting it more.
This is a problem I agree, but do the wishes of the local boatowners wishing to have easy access to their boats take precedence over the wishes of the holidaymakers (and probably bar owners along the harbourside) who after all keep those said businesses afloat (excuse the pun)
For sure there is inadequate parking in and around the village, but that is just how Los Gigantes has been allowed to develop over the years, find a small piece of land, lets build something on it. Little thought as to how these businesses/homes are going to find adequate parking spaces.
The introduction of the newly constructed car park outside the village in Peurto Santiago which has remained closed since its completion would help somewhat with car parking in the area, but as I have said before on another thread regarding car parking, unless and until restricted parking applies in the roads around the area, motorists would only use the new pay car park when they are convinced free street parking has all been taken and no other spaces are available.
The roads around Vagilia Park are a nightmare to find a parking space for both visitors and residents.
Motorists have had troubles parking in and around LG for quite a while and I guess will continue to do so, its all part of life in Los Gigantes !
