Lots of new commercial buildings getting built which is great for Quesada but now they have built an eyesore Mas y Mas right by the entrance to Quesada... now I here they are going to close the main drag off for 6 months to re do the road layout differently? lots of businesses on this street will lose custom and some are even thinking of selling up or simply walking away as no customer + no money = nada... what are our councillor/s doing about this?
What I sent a Mas y Mas? I have always love the high street in Quesada it’s what makes Quesada different, it’s always buzzing.
But I have to agree it’s a mess these days and almost impossible to walk on the path, if you are not opstructed by cars parked over the pavement or tables and chairs from the cafes then you are going to bump into the ever increasing people that use it.
Things need to change.
I think Quesada is best known for the Arches and the high street, it has to be one of the best in Spain, I was at La Marina not long ago, it had no style to it what so every compared to Quesada.
I think Quesada is very popular with different nationalities where as la marina is little Essex imo

Built in 2011 at a cost of almost 9 million euros Torrevieja’s Social Care Centre remains closed because it still hasn’t been transferred by the Consell into the hands of Torrevieja City Council and it is still not known when it is likely to open.
The Consell say that they cannot open it yet because it “does not meet the legal requirements and also needs some modifications.
The Torrevieja mayor, José Manuel Dolón, explained that the City Council had found three problems when they were going through the process of opening it as an adult centre, family meeting point and supervised children’s centre.
The first is that the property is “not legalised” since “it has not been formally handed”. This procedure has to be carried out by the construction company that erected the building. However, according to Dolón, the architect who was in charge of the project has refused to sign a statement of completion. “It’s a case very similar to the Municipal Theatre,” said Dolon, who blamed the situation on the PP saying “the normal thing is that when the work is finished everything is signed, but it has still not happened.”
The second of the “unpleasant surprises” that have been found is that money is still owed for the construction of the building. The construction company filed an appeal in the courts to claim 245,862 euros as settlement for the works, of which 79,839 was VAT.
The third problem is related to the building plot itself as formal reports were never made, a process that is carried out prior to the commencement of construction work.
The Centre has been built on a municipal plot of 11,152 square meters, divided into 7,630 square metres of garden and 3,522 square metres of accommodation space on the ground floor. The total constructed area is 5,000 square meters which will eventually be used by such local organisations as AFA, ALPE, AMFA, ADIEM and APANEE
However, the mayor was unable to provide any indication of when the building might open.

The prosecutor’s office will provisionally ask for sentences of between five and six and a half years in prison for his illegal detention and for other injuries sustained while he was held
The events occurred last year, when the victim allowed two of the suspects, a man and a woman, to lodge temporarily with him in his house in Torrevieja.
After a few days, the host told the couple that they had to leave but they allegedly refused and locked him up in one of the rooms.
His confinement lasted for thirteen days, during which time colleagues of the couple also moved into the house, taking it in turns to keep an eye on the man.
The prosecution also alleges that they even attacked him on several occasions, to the point of breaking a rib.
The public prosecutor is demanding sentences of five years in prison for three of the accused and six and a half years for the other three, because in addition to the crime of illegal detention, they are also accused of assault.
According to the Valencian TSJ the trial will start on Monday in the seventh section of the Court of Alicante, which is based in Elche, and continue through to Wednesday.
are any estate agents using the new VR technology yet in the Quesada area? as this would save a lot of driving? I found this site and lots of information on it. http://vriphones.com
The pound is at its highest level against the US Dollar since the EU Referendum, breaking GBP/USD 1.39 earlier today (Friday). It has also climbed against the euro, rising 1.2% midweek to 1.1350.
This pound-positive activity is due to a brighter Brexit outlook; both Spain and the Netherlands suggested they would support the UK remaining closely aligned with the EU in terms of trade and Jean-Claude Juncker hinted that Britain could rejoin the EU after Brexit. This new-found optimism had a positive impact on the markets but as we know everything is temporary and there are bound to be more Brexit hurdles very soon.
Now that the summer is effectively over and the weather is beginning to cool, Torrevieja and La Mata shopkeepers are redoubling their efforts to rid the streets of the current proliferation of so-called “manteros” and the “organised groups of illegal street vendors”.
Until a few days ago their presence was mainly confined to the beaches where they sold products ranging from footwear to sports equipment and sun wear, illegal copies of shoes and well-known sports brands, even jewellery, clothes and fruit and veg.
Torrevieja’s president of the Association of Small and Medium-sized Traders (APYMECO), David Sánchez, has been critical of their presence since July, when his organisation issued a statement denouncing the massive presence along promenades and beaches in the illegal sale of products.
He said that Torrevieja City Council “has not done anything about it” to dissuade these people who have now moved their businesses onto the streets, with little police presence to dissuade them from doing so. “The problem is far more serious than the police are giving it credit. It is an endemic problem that is causing serious damage and untold losses to many existing legal businesses, damage that they really cannot afford or sustain.
Sanchez now demands “urgent and drastic measures” from the city council and the police the illegal traders cause seriously damage to the businesses of Torrevieja that cannot be reversed. “My members religiously pay their taxes,” he said, pointing once again that the local administration has failed to provide answers to the formal complaints.
Having already suffered with the economic crisis of recent years, the damage being caused by illegal traders to genuine businesses is, without a doubt, another problem for those shopkeepers who have been able to survive. For all these reasons, the president of APYMECO urges the merchants to report, as many times as is necessary, the presence of these manteros in their areas to ensure that the Local Police are at least out on the streets.
Since 2012, when the Torrevieja City Council first introduced the Operational Reinforcement Group, one of its many tasks has been the control of illegal street vendors and the seizure of counterfeit products in the main tourist areas of the city, especially along the seafront in Juan Aparicio and La Cura beach. The responsibility should also extend to in the beach at La Mata, although there have been hardly any visits of the GRO during the summer season.
Following their clampdown 2 or 3 years ago the GRO now seems to have taken their eye off the problem as a result of which it is once again close to reaching epidemic proportions, another season of which will undoubtedly result in the closure of many more Torrevieja businesses.
