BLUE ZONE park­ing is now free in Mo­raira, after the town mayor, Car­los Linares, kept his prom­ise that he would axe park­ing charges.

His ful­fil­ment fol­lowed an an­nounce­ment in 2018 from the con­ces­sion owner, who in­di­cated they would like to in­tro­duce a mo­bile ap­pli­ca­tion scheme where driv­ers could pay to park on the spot, rather than find a me­ter.

“From the coun­cil, we fully re­ject the pro­posal of com­pany, es­pe­cially when it has a cost for the users. The end of 2018 is the date when the con­tract fin­ishes with the com­pany that reg­u­lates the park­ing in Teu­ladaMo­raira. My in­ten­tion, and that of the coun­cil, is that while we are in this town hall, and while I am mayor, when- ever we can we will avoid our cit­i­zens pay­ing for park­ing” he said at the time.

From 1 Jan­uary, he or­dered all me­ters in blue zones to state ‘Blue zone abol­ished, free park­ing’.

His ini­tia­tive will no doubt be ap­pre­ci­ated by res­i­dents and tourists alike.
