A NEW Axarquia golf course has been given the green light to be built on a 1.7 million metres-squared site.
The residential golf complex, Juvigolf, is now just waiting on final approval from the Ministry of Public Works before work can begin.
Following a positive environmental report and submission of adequate plans for drinking and irrigation water supplies, the ministry is unlikely to object.
The €300 million project includes an 18-hole golf course, more than 1,500 homes and a four-star hotel, as well as a restaurant.
The complex, 3km north of Chilches, is expected to be completed between 2020 and 2050.
