Coín mayor Gabriel Clavijo and some of his councillors visited the area outside the town known as Los Llanos to check out the ground for the new sports complex the council wants to build there. Sr Clavijo said the complex would not put the area’s aquifer at risk. In response to warnings from the town’s Izquierda Unida (IU, United Left) party, he told reporters: “The plans for the complex were drawn up by specialist environmentalists and biologists and will not do any ecological harm.” He said the town desperately needed a complex where people could enjoy their favourite sports. “At the moment, they are practising them in uncontrolled areas where they are at risk from traffic or can injure themselves on uneven terrain.” The project has yet to get the go-ahead from the Junta de Andalucia.
