HUNDREDS of people have protested over plans to build an enormous housing and hotel complex next to Tarifa’s virgin Valdevaqueros beach.
The campaigners held giant posters spelling out ‘Save Valdavaqueros’ and placards that read ‘Valdavaqueros is not for sale’.
The scheme comprising 350 apartments and 1,400 rooms was approved by Tarifa Town Hall in June.
Green groups have labelled the project ‘completely unsustainable’ and so far collected 90,000 signatures against it.
“It is pathetic that it is us, the citizens, who are having to fight this,” said Noelia Jurado, a spokeswoman for pressure group Salvemos Valdevaqueros.
