MARBELLA COUNCIL has launched a scheme to beautify its old town.

Felix Romero, a council spokesman, explained the plan aims “to enhance the image of the city as a world reference in tourism,” adding, “we will redesign and improve the existing green areas of the urban area, which make it particularly attractive.”

Among other measures, 37 new hanging baskets will be installed in streetlamps located in the squares of Santo Cristo, Los Naranjos, Victoria, Practicante Manuel Cantos and Puente Malaga. They will also be installed on calles Ancha, Peral, Castillejos and Marques de Najera.

Sixty-four wooden and terracotta planters will also be distributed around the town, with new seasonal flower arrangements and shrubs “to give more visibility” to the area. They will be located on calles Peral, Pedraza, Tetuan, Virgen de los Remedios, Enrique del Castillo and Fortaleza, and in the squares of Practicante Manuel Cantos and Puente Ronda.

According to Romero, green areas will be redesigned in different ways, with a total of 72 new planters being built on Avenida Nabeul, which will gain 34 new planters, Felix Rodriguez de la Fuente, which will gain four, as well as Parque de la Alameda, Plaza del Delfin, Avenida del Mar and Notario Luis Oliver Street, which will receive 34 new planters, as well as on Terrazas del Puerto, Plaza Juan de la Rosa and Avenida Miguel Cano.
