Arona Ayuntamiento demands legal process speeds up to proceed with Court-ruled evictions in occupied Los Cristianos eyesore CC Los Tarajales

Only the other day local hoteliers were demanding action over the squatting in the new and unopened commercial centre Los Tarajales, on the front in Los Cristianos, and now Arona Urbanism councillor Luis García has taken up the call and pleaded for the legal system to speed up the eviction procedure. Legal sources have confirmed that an eviction order has been issued by the Courts but say there are “administrative procedures” which still have to be completed. Meanwhile, the council itself is now increasingly concerned at what is an eyesore in prime tourist territory on the eve of the main holiday season.

The commercial centre is owned by two private businessmen, who García said “had been prosecuting the case for a long time, one in which the Ayuntamiento could not interfere”. The council, like the local police, are clearly irked at the possibility that they will be held responsible for either the situation or the apparent inaction of eviction procedures, especially given the efforts being made at municipal level to improve other parts of the same area, such as the first phase of improvements to the Los Tarajales paseo marítimo, scheduled to begin at the end of July, as I reported HERE just last month.


  1. Valuable, and unique Janet thanks. I see little or nothing about the Merlin ” resort” in Calleo Salvaje – shame this negates the public and private investment locally which is making the village enjoyable. No doubt a complicated legal long – running saga, but do not the Authorities have compulsory purchase powers as well as a duty to safeguard the public. ?
