Mayor Angeles Muñoz considers the measure ‘diametrically opposed to tourism’, and has set her Conservative PP party against the measure.
The mayor, who was voted in last year, insists it puts the environment of the area ‘in danger’ and intends to submit proposal to halt the plans.
The Costa del Sol is among a list of new areas where the central government has authorised prospecting to be carried out.
But Muñoz said: ‘It puts our coast and eco-system in danger. We cannot tolerate them playing with the future of the Costa del Sol and our coastline’.
She also laid emphasis on the many families whose livelihoods depend on tourism.
However Diego Lara from the Socialist party called their statements ‘alarmist’ and said that once again the Mayor had used the Town Hall as a ‘missile against the Government’."
