malagaA STUDY has been launched to investigate the sustainability of Malaga’s recent tourist accommodation boom.

The city’s Urban Environment Observatory (OMAU), a research organisation,  wants to find out exactly how many properties are being used as hotels, hostels and apartments in the historic centre.

It will then use the data to decide if action needs to be taken to  ensure properties remain available for residents.

The news of the study comes after Malaga Council revealed that action would be taken if the number of beds available to tourists in the area topped 15,000 to ensure properties are still available for residents.
