San Miguel council takes charge of Golf del Sur amenities

There was good news for residents of Golf Del Sur yesterday (Friday), as the San Miguel de Abona Council announced the completion of the transfer of the urbanisation from a private company to the council for the development and improvement of local infrastructure in the resort.

This means that the Council officially acquires full responsibility for Golf del Sur of water supply and sewerage services, maintenance of green areas, and street cleaning, which were previously under private ownership.

These services will now be publicly managed by the council, who were already in charge of public lighting and rubbish collection in the area.

The agreement reached yesterday confirms the complete transfer of the Golf del Sur urbanization, something the council promised to do after taking charge of Amarilla Golf in 2021 to improve services in the area.

This change will provide a significant improvement in the quality of life for the more than 5,500 residents and visitors of the resort, which now has more than 5,000 tourist beds, by guaranteeing Golf del Sur all essential services, which were sometimes sporadic with the private company, and making it equal to any other nucleus in the municipality.

Golf del Sur is one of the tourist destinations that has experienced remarkable growth over the last few years and is in a privileged position to continue to prosper.

The San Miguel de Abona council said in a statement that they are “committed to continuing to promote the development of the area, offering quality services, promoting an attractive environment for both residents and tourists and working to improve the quality of life of its citizens, and strengthening its position as a leading destination in the region”.

In the past many residents and tourists have been vocal on social media blaming the council for several things that, they didn’t realise, the council weren’t responsible for. This change means that the council now have the chance to put these things right, and the public will know who to blame if they don’t!
