RONDA Town Hall intends to revive the controversial Los Merinos mega-golf urbanisation project.

The project plan includes the construction of two golf courses and 783 houses over 1,000 hectares of land.

Despite the Supreme Court’s ruling in March that scrapped the project – intended for UNESCO-protected land based on concerns of lack of water to support the project – the town hall has declared that it will go forward with a meeting scheduled for September with Banco Popular, the owner of the land, to reopen the discussion of the sale.

The Olive Press was responsible for launching the original campaign protesting against the project, which the court determined would affect the water supplies of multiple neighbouring towns.

The ex-mayor of Ronda Antonio Marin spoke out in favour of the project, stating, “The Merinos project can be revived. The ruling didn’t say that it couldn’t happen.”
