Updated 31 October: In the end, it took just a month, and after the public meeting on Friday 5 October where locals demanded action to resolve the lack of progress in Callao Salvaje’s development, Adeje Ayuntamiento has announced that the roads, at least, will be tarmacked. The council says that the village is to be included in wide-ranging plans for the municipality which will see many roads resurfaced and repaved in areas as diverse as the town of Adeje itself with its “suburbs” of La Postura and Las Nieves, parts of Fañabe, Los Menores, and Charco del Valle. In Callao Salvaje itself, resurfacing works will be carried out in Calles La Zahorra, El Jable, Duarte and Pencatinta. These works comprise the second phase of the council’s Plan de Asfaltado y Repavimentación de las vías púbicas de Adeje which has seen resurfacing works carried out in several major parts of the Costa Adeje to a budget amounting in total to €3.5m. Attention now turns to residential areas.

Original post 3 October: I’ve heard very many complaints about how Callao Salvaje is “neglected” by the council, with works starting and not being completed, roads left undefined and unfinished, the beach bar closed, etc etc etc … and now a meeting that has been demanded for a very long time is happening. This Friday, 5 October, 6pm in the Callao Salvaje Community Church in Sueño Azul. And it’s not just a meeting for “concerned locals” but the council will be there too. If you are concerned about Callao Salvaje, this is your chance to be heard.
