The car park concessionaire announces its closure on January 1 for accumulated losses

heads The concessionaire of the public parking La Almedina de Torrox, located in the heart of the historic center, has communicated in writing to the City Council that renounces the contract for the losses accumulated in the eleven years that the enclosure has been open, with 385 seats, so that will proceed to its final closure on January 1. The firm alleges that the Consistory "continues to allow illegal mass parking in the immediate vicinity", which is "seriously damaging" it.

After two sentences, a first one of the Contentious-Administrative Court and a later one of the Superior Court of Justice of Andalusia (TSJA) dismissed the appeals filed by the company, in which he claimed compensation of 33 million, those responsible for parking , in which seven million euros were invested, have chosen to throw in the towel. Thus, in a letter sent to the mayor, Óscar Medina (PP), to which this newspaper has had access, they inform him that the 'parking' will be closed on December 31, so they urge him to negotiate to take charge of the installations.

Thus, they explain that they have commissioned a report to determine how much the Consistory would have to pay to gain ownership. "The concession is billing eight times less than the provisions according to which it was tendered and awarded," says the UTE, with a loss of 4.2 million euros. The Consistory increased the concession from 20 to 40 years in 2014 to compensate for the situation. The councilor explained to SUR that, for the moment, they will not take any action. «If they want to leave they leave, the City Council cannot assume a millionaire outlay. This was a lousy PSOE management, ?he said.
