No Oil Canarias_2 (1)

According to a Cabildo press release, the court was composed of 5 judges, with “two dissenting votes against.”

The original exploratory drilling permits were granted in 2001, and re approved in 2012, since when they have been held up with various court actions.

It is thought to be one of the last hurdles for oil company Repsol to begin their €7 Billion drilling project.

Holiday Home Rental Meeting in Lanzarote

The President of the Cabildo in Lanzarote has analysed the government initiative to regularise the holiday home rental market in the Canaries with associations ASCAV & ASEMCOM.

Reunión ASCAV-ASEMCOM

“The Canaries is the region of Spain with the highest number of holiday rentals, representing 10% of all the tourists coming to the Canaries, in the region of 1,300,000 during 2013. This directly generates an annual revenue in the region of 1,000 million euros and indirectly more than 34% of tourism employment and over 33% of GDP.”

This data was presented at the meeting by José Luis Delgado, the president of the Canarian holiday rental association ASCAV, Javier Valiente the lawyer for the association and Doris Borrego the president of the business association ASEMCOM in Playa Blanca. This information was given to Pedro San Ginés, the president of the Cabildo in Lanzarote during the meeting, with a request for the Canary Islands Government to regularise the holiday home market in the Canaries, as they have done in other autonomous regions such as Catalonia or Andalusia.

Lanzarote Restaurant Review - Castillo San José

We were out with friends visiting Lansaldo in Arrecife, and we decided to go and enjoy some lunch at the Castillo San José.

Que Muac LanzaroteQue Muac glass fronted restaurant

Walking into the restaurant Qué Muac is fabulous – the décor is very “Lanzarote” with wooden floors, shaped concrete ceilings, and the view is one of the very best on the island. Huge picture windows look straight out to the Puerto Naos docks and the feeling is very much like being on a cruise liner, looking out to sea from the bridge.

We did have an initial disappointment – the kitchen is closed on a  read more »
