AN AIRPORT hub planned for Alhaurin has been delayed after a Junta report deemed it ‘unviable’ with 40 per cent set aside on environmentally valuable land.

Mayor Joaquin Villanova has criticised the Junta for putting up ‘serious obstacles’ to the so-called ‘Airport City’ development.

He insisted the project, initially approved in 2009, would create 35,000 jobs over the next 15 years.

Green group Equo has praised the report, saying the whole project needs to be reconsidered.
