AVIATION authorities have scuppered plans from a brand new shopping centre in Malaga.
Plans for a multi-million euro designer outlet at Malaga’s Plaza Mayor have taken a ‘serious knockback’ after airport officials expressed concern about the impact it would have on planes landing and taking off. The British firm behind the plans, McArthurGlen, are now ‘desperately’ trying to work with the Civil Aviation board in order to get things back on track. “We are hopeful that this is just a glitch and can be resolved,” a spokesman said. “We need to have permission from the airport before we can go any further so we will be working with them to sort out the issue.” He added: “At the moment, we are still working towards a completion date of mid-2017.” Town Hall officials must now carry out new analysis of the site, following airport concerns over interference with radio transmission. The designer outlet – McArthurGlen’s first in Spain – is to include 90 stores across 17,000 square metres of retail space. It is estimated to cost €115 million in total.
