IT is a very much stand alone resort.
And now La Herradura has got a decent chance of becoming a town in its own right.
It comes after the local Izquierda Unida party had a motion unanimously approved to break the seaside resort away from Almunecar.
All parties at Almunecar Town Hall agreed on the creation of an independent commission of 10 members.
The current deputy mayor of La Herradura, Juan Ruiz Joya, will become head of the commission.
“Today, this municipal group has achieved a very important agreement, dare I say, historical,” said Ruiz Joya.
“I have always been convinced that this time would come, although it is now essential to tackle it with a calm approach while listening to what the residents have to say.”
