The Andalusian has registered various requests for grant 16 new beach bars on the beaches of the province after installation, so that these requests bind the 72 catering establishments on which must regulate their administrative status.
As local who have requested new grant prior to installation, three applications have been resolved corresponding to Pulpí, Cuevas del Almanzora and Carboneras, while the other 13 are pending. These are for the installation of three bars in Vera, three in Mojacar, two Roquetas de Mar, one Garrucha, one Nijar, one Carboneras, one in El Ejido and another in the capital.
The power to punish those bars that lack concession is the General State Administration, for the occupation of public domain maritime-terrestrial, although the Board is responsible for penalties for breach of the conditions of the grant. Concessions are multiannual, five to 15 years old, depending on factors such as their location or characteristics of the installation.
