New chance for spectacular project in port of Marbella?

Is this the turning point for the project of the Port of La Bajadilla?

Read more about the project

The Mayoress of Marbella, Angeles Muñoz & the delegate representing the Group Al Thani , Moayad Shatat, have signed the acceptance of the shares in the Society, which are distributed as follows: Nasir Bin Adullah and Sons S.L. with 97%, the Townhall of Marbella with 2% & the Leisure Port of Marbella with 1%.

The Mayoress explained that “from this moment on the UTE which won the the project for the amplification of the port is now a legalized society ” & she stressed that “the Townhall has accepted being a shareholder without having to contribute financially & that the costs would be paid for by the main shareholding company, which owned 97%”.

Following a 2.5 year delay, the Mayoress left the delegate from the Group Al Thani , Moayad Shatat, to announce when it was envisaged that the works would start. Moayad Shatat, speaking on behalf of the company he pointed out that the works would commence during the first six months of 2014. has been able to find out that this new development only thanks to the Group Al Thani, after numerous & undesirable set backs with the municipal administration, to reach an ageement under new conditions.
Now it appears almost certain that the project will goa head in different stages, starting with docking facilities for cruiseships. If and when, the commercial centre will be constructed, is still not known.
What is clear, is that the new hotel promised by the politicians will not get construction permission. The industrial zone where all the car showrooms are situated, at the moment will not be touched, because the legal & financial aspects relating to this have still not been sorted out.

Conclusion: As long as the administration doesn’t put up more barriers for the project, the new port should finally become a a reality. This would be a very good & important development for Marbella.
