Original post 10 January: There are some mixed feelings in the west coast town of Playa San Juan this week where works have just started on the renovation of the town’s central plaza, with new garden areas, a children’s play area, and underground parking. Mayor Pedro Martín says that the square is “the only one in the municipality which has not been renovated and its poor condition makes that all too evident”. Mayor Martín confirmed that the works have been in the pipeline for some time because the excavations for the underground car park make for an ambitious project.

For the mayor, the “lack of a suitable square was compounded by the serious parking problems in the town, two issues which will now be resolved with the new works”. Some locals, however, are viewing the development, including the demolition of the old church, with sad eyes. Municipal sources say, however, that the plans have been discussed with a whole range of local collectives and societies, as well as local businesses and, particularly, the Bishopric of Tenerife. The works are set to cost Guía de Isora nearly €2.5m, and one way or another, will transform the centre of the town over the course of the next year as the new plaza takes shape.
