A GROUP of parents are up in arms over plans to site the new San Pedro de Alcantara bus station directly opposite a primary school.

Marbella Town Hall has re-zoned an area opposite the Maria Teresa Leon primary school and intends to build the station less than ten metres from the school gates..

The parents have now formed a group called ‘No a La Estacion de Autobus Al Lado Del Colegio Teresa De Leon’ and have gathered over 1,300 signatures.

They have had support from 22 different groups as well as opposition political parties, neighbourhood associations and even the taxi drivers association.

Last month over 500 people attended a rally in San Pedro’s main square.

But Marbella Town Hall has dismissed the protests, insisting it is a vital part of the new town’s redevelopment.
