Work on earth movements at Los Alcornoques Golf in San Pablo de Buceite have been stopped, apparently temporarily. The course is part of an urbanization that also includes 1400 homes and a luxury hotel in development by the Las Limas de Gaucín company owned by Irish businessman Robert Noonan. The measure affects some 40 workers, most of whom live in Jimena or San Pablo. There have also been unconfirmed reports that the developer owes the contractor payments for work already carried out.

According to a spokesman from Las Limas de Gaucín, the stoppage is owed to changes in plans and permits, and to recent heavy rains. The company says work will be renewed in one or two months, adding that “An investment of €18 million is a guarantee.” For his part, the President of the San Pablo Municipal District, Andrés Beffa, said, “The work has a schedule that must be respected. And the Partial Plan must be met.”

Robert Noonan was also the promoter of an airport at Jimena de la Frontera, a project that was rejected on environmental grounds. He was also behind a project for a Gibraltar airline, which also failed, as did a large development on the Rock, which was taken over by the colony’s government.
