Crematorium could go up in smoke


SAN PEDRO’S crematorium may be forced to close after a Malaga judge annulled the licence used to erect the building.

The judge ruled the document, which was granted in January 2015, had been handed out by a body not authorised to do so and was therefore void.

He made the judgment following a complaint from a resident living on the same street as the crematorium. San Pedro’s Deputy Mayor, Rafael Piña, said the council was now appealing the decision, adding, “if the result is negative, San Pedro’s crematorium may be closed because of the previous government’s incompetence.”

He said he was looking at alternative solutions, however, explaining, “if we have to move the location, we would be willing to do so.”
