Benidorm City Council is carrying out cleaning and clearing work in about 12,000 square meters in the Serra Gelada area, specifically in the surroundings of the Ti Ximo and l'Almadrava coves, La Creu and Torre de les Caletes. The Councilor for Public Space, José Ramón González de Zárate, explained that “due to the complexity of the orography of much of this area, we have had to resort to a company specialised in vertical works, which during the last three weeks has carried out environmental adaptation works, which have included the clearing of bushes, the pruning and enhancement of trees, as well as the collection of waste ”.

De Zárate has detailed that “due to the lack of maintenance by the Generalitat Valenciana, responsible for the Natural Park, we have acted in areas with a significant influx of visitors, which has grown progressively in recent years in line with the intervention actions archaeological, accessibility and urban scene undertaken by the City Council ”. "We are also talking about an area of ​​high ecological value, included within the Serra Gelada Natural Park and in its surroundings, so this environmental adaptation is also key to reducing the risk of fires", he added.

The mayor of Public Space has indicated that "in addition to improving the image, cleaning and clearing of the area will also facilitate access to emergency vehicles in case of need, as well as those assigned to the surveillance, cleaning and maintenance".

In the next few days the total data of tons of waste and pruning remains will be available. This action has involved an investment of €17,250 euros.
