I understand that there is (or shortly to be)  new legislation whereby certain apartment blocks need to have ladies and gents toilet facilities at the pool area.

Does anyone have any thoughts or comments ?

  • Not before time! This has been on the cards for ages. I know it will cost but it is a sensible hygiene move.

  • Don't see it as too much of a problem frankly, with the now massive clampdown on the illegal (and non agent letting) of apartments there won't be many tourists here to use them, so a good number of pools will end up being drained and filled in.

    Those few tourists left visiting Los Gigs will probably be doing so for the last time now that they cannot enjoy sitting outside watching the world go by now that the council has cleared the pavements of tables and chairs forcing tourists inside to be bombarded by day-time spanish TV at full volume through it's internal power struggle and total short-sightedness directed toward making this county a pleasant place to visit.

  • Since when have you not been able to sit and watch the world go by ? Is this just in LG or Spain in general ?

     why  have we this whole problem with the 'powers that be' suddenly coming down on this area like a ton of bricks?  did los gigantes prove a threat to some other part of tenerife? or, has somebody somewhere upset someone in a 'high' position?

  • The laws governing obsructing pavements is a local Santiago del Teide council rule, passed 6 or 7 years ago but not enforced until a couple of weeks ago.  (other counties may well have their own rules as well of course).

    Basically anywhere which used to set out tables and chairs on what was essentially the pavement has had the local police (acting on instruction from the deputy Mayor) remove them and I believe fined.  The full story can be found elsewhere - my previous post suggesting where on the internet it could be found was removed (no surprise there then) but it perhaps not sunny news for those invloved.

    It is true that some bars/restaurants were taking up rather too much of the pavement for safety sake, but others like Bar Central which has had a few tables and chairs outside for more years than many would care to remember is one of the many places where you can no longer sit outside and whose takings will surely be affected.

    Real question is why enforce a 7 year old ruling suddenly, and why now when many winter tourists to LG and PS are just arriving - a great way to pee regulars who enjoy a coffee and swift fag with the warmth of the sun on their faces.

    Ahhh - council politics then
