The popular craft fair that is erected daily on the seafront at Torrevieja is to undergo a facelift.
For forty years, the traders have had to set up their stalls each day and take them down at night.
For the future, they will have open fronted wooden sheds which will be left permanently in place. Apart from the convenience, the buildings will provide shade and protection from the rain.
The council also intend to repair the pavement along that stretch of promenade which, at the moment, is in a sorry state. In the meantime, the market will be relocated to allow the work to be completed.
One of the other benefits of this change will be to eliminate the illegal traders who set up stalls along the current market without paying fees to the council.
