PLANS to develop the stretch of virgin coastline around El Palmar have come a step closer after it was announced that the area will become officially ‘urbanised’ this month.

Vejer town hall has approved the installation of basic infrastructure and services for the small, low-rise hamlet on the Costa de la Luz.

It lays the foundations for a plan to build two 400-bed luxury hotels there.

Owners of illegally built homes in the area will now have to pay 60 euros per square metre to access services such as electricity and sanitation.

The decision comes after months of controversy surrounding plans to develop Andalucía’s last virgin beach.
