The mayor, José Manuel Dolón, has made the announcement that a decree from the Valencian community does regulate the parking of motorhomes on public land. Until now, this particular law does not appear to have been acted upon. However, the intention seems to be that it will be in future. The regional law states that vans should not remain in the same public place for more than 48 hours. In fact, the mayor suggests, it should be less than this where there are no services available to accommodate the vans.
At the moment campervans and other types of motor homes are scattered at different points across the town, often frontline to the sea. They can be seen in the coves between the beaches of Los Locos and Torre del Moro and next to Cala Piteras. The official line now seems to be that the law must be complied with and that we can expect those staying longer than their welcome to be moved along.
At the same time it has been announced that an individual has got the go ahead to process their application to construct a private motor home park in the urbanisation La Veleta. Plans are already underway to convert the area, which should begin in October. The town council is expecting that there will be some opposition to the scheme as announced in the paper Informacion.
