The new and improved harbour will have 182 berths on floating pontoons, of which 17 have been assigned for fishing vessels and the new exterior section will handle the commercial traffic including cruise ships. Car parking, harbour offices, shops and restaurants have been included in the plans and will improve the western part of Playa Blanca which now is a bit run down .
I understand that the ‘unofficial’ car park will not be affected, but it will mean more traffic on the main road. I have already discussed with the gardeners additional perimeter planting to help shield Las Casitas from any additional noise.
A new harbour extension at Playa Blanca, which has been in the offing for some 10 years, has now been approved and building is likely to start this year,
The existing harbour in Playa Blanca occupies a space of 91,470m2, the new extension will add a further 114,099m2 to the facility. The expansion project includes a new breakwater from the land to the south with a total length of 300 metres and depth of 17 metres. From there, the new section will run parallel to the existing harbour wall for 440 metres with more space available for sport, fishing and commercial vessels as well as improving the operation of the port.
