With a strong turnout of ex-pat residents,  Deputy Mayor Fanny Serrano , Councillor Carmen Morate and Foreigners Director Carlos Gonzalez attended.

There was heated debate about the lack of completing La Siesta Park and the meeting was frustrated that after over 20 years of promises the park is still not useable.

The Deputy Mayor said the completion of the park was awaiting the outcome of a court case. Other issues raised included poor traffic signs and the lack of speed control. 

At a previous meeting the Mayor had stated that the local police had the funding to implement new road markings and signage and this is still awaited. 

The team from Parque Natural then gave an excellent presentation on the need to help protect the special species of birds, wildlife and fauna around the lakes and for residents to consider their obligations. 

The Parque team noted the damage caused to the salt lake machinery from illegal use of the lakes caused by litter and broken glass polluting the lake.  It was requested that dogs are kept on leads in the lakeside parks to avoid disturbing nesting birds.

The Mayor will attend the next meeting on November the 26th which as the last meeting of the year and will also have the Torrevieja Pipes and Drum band performing for residents who can enjoy a glass of wine to celebrate a successful year for the group.
