fuste project beach regeneration caleta

Beach regeneration project in Caleta de Fuste
#1
We all know how the regeneration of the beach in Caleta went and most people would say they should leave it as it was just to top it up with a bit of extra sand of the same colour if possible, etc.

I just came across this article @ www.ayto-antigua.es to show us all the Ayuntamiento is still fighting:


This Wednesday, July 17 in the morning, the Government Group of the Municipality of Antigua held the first meeting to present and make contact with the Senator from Fuerteventura, Paloma Hernández.

The objective of this meeting, affirms the mayor of Antigua, Matías Peña, has been to transfer the main objectives that we are interested in defending and promoting as senator, that is, the Regeneration of the Castillo Beach and the Paseo Marítimo del Castillo.

In this sense, adds Matías Peña, the Senator has shown her willingness to collaborate in any management that promotes an adequate execution of this project, whose current status is not acceptable or meets the quality required for the tourist destination that is Caleta de Fuste, affirms Paloma Hernández.

To present myself and to be at your disposal to work for the benefit of the residents of Antigua, is the fundamental reason for this meeting, and adds Hernandez, to be available for any procedure and management that requires the services of the State, and that I can boost from the Senate.

The meeting with the senator has been cordial, fruitful and with the common spirit of working for the benefit of the Municipality, says Matías Peña, agreeing that the regeneration of the beach of the Castle is an unfinished battle that we must continue giving all together, in the Endeavor to have a beach in perfect condition.

A vital project for the municipality, the tourism sector and tourists who choose us as a destination for their rest, concludes the mayor.

The beach regeneration project wasn't signed off by the last mayor as the Ayuntamiento weren't happy with the way it was done. I'm sure that it'll be a long time before anything happens or if it even it does!

The Mayor and councillors from the Ayuntamiento of Antigua have met with the Spanish Costa Department in Madrid. Costas have agreed that errors were made in the beach regeneration scheme in Caleta de Fuste, and that they will undertake corrective measures. This will mean that the plan to widen the promenade path will be put on hold..  The

Translation:  Costas will correct the deficiencies of the El Castillo Beach Regeneration Project
Mayor and councilors hold a meeting with the Directorate of Coasts in Madrid requesting the necessary improvement of El Castillo Beach. According to the press release sent by the local institution, "Costas assumes that there were errors in the execution of the Regeneration Project of El Castillo Beach and announces the tender this year of an action plan that corrects its current state."
This Wednesday afternoon, the Mayor of Antigua, Matías Peña García, together with the Councilor for Tourism, @deborahcarol Edgington, the Councilor for Urban Planning, Manuel Hernández and the Councilor for Playas, Taishet Fuentes, met with the Deputy Director General for the Protection of the Coast, Angel Muñoz, in order to assess the state of El Castillo Beach.
The meeting with the Directorate of Coasts has been promoted by the Senator of Fuerteventura, Paloma Hernández, at the request of the City Councils of Pájara and Antigua, with their representatives present therein.
We thank the Senator for coordinating this meeting in which we have moved the necessary and urgent corrective intervention on a poorly executed project to regenerate El Castillo beach, says the mayor of Antigua, Matías Peña.
Costas assumes having made mistakes in the execution of the El Castillo Beach project, announcing the tender this year of a plan or study that includes the necessary corrective actions. We value this announcement positively, but this will not be the only meeting we have with the Coastal Directorate evaluating each step and transferring the urgency of the intervention, says Matías Peña.
In the same sense, we consider it regrettable that the improvement of the Paseo Marítimo must also be postponed before an execution project that contains inaccuracies, as the Government of the Canary Islands reflected in a negative report to the Directorate of Coasts in Madrid for its necessary correction.
From the City Council of Antigua we demand and demand seriousness, speed and efficiency, and concludes Mayor Matías Peña, it is not acceptable that we still do not have a Beach and a Promenade in conditions in El Castillo, and that when they finally act with serious inaccuracies

Thanks for the good news Captain. Not sure how many years it'll take to fix it though.

On Cope Fuerteventura radio, the Mayor of Antigua has said (a translation) -
Antigua beach will be regenerated without extending the promenade
At the meeting held in Madrid with the top officials of the General Directorate of Sustainability of the Coast and the Sea, at the request of the senator for Fuerteventura, Paloma Hernández, the authorities of Antigua achieved the commitment to regenerate the beach but without extending the promenade . A project that the City Council reformed in order to gain land to the beach for pedestrians and that has not been approved by the Government of the Canary Islands. For this reason, it is necessary to modify it again to recover the initial idea and, as soon as possible, transfer it so that it can be put out to tender as soon as possible. The central government will also tender the regeneration of the beach for which it will be necessary, notes Matías, “a new layer of sand” and “a large sieve that will also be included in the tender” and universal access to the beach as well as the other services.

No more "sand" from Rosario would be appreciated Huh


Walked the beach yesterday and the north (Barcello) end looks already pretty bad. The water is finally getting clearer and more inviting for a dip.

The sand came from circa 1 Mile off the beach, we watched a Dredger working there for about 14/15 days, it was then trucked back to the beach, I have some photo,s somewhere of the growing mound of grey " Sand" they used to "Regenerate" the Beach Rolleyes Rolleyes Rolleyes Rolleyes Rolleyes

 The sand was dredged from the cruise shop dock in Puerto del Rosario and brought to Caleta by ship. It was then pumped ashore.

I've got lots of photos and videos of the work in progress.

One day I'll have time to create a timelapse video of the whole process.

We will agree to differ on this Stephen, I watched scores of lorries driving on to the beach and depositing the sand they even had earth moving equipment there before they actually started leveling The Beach.

I'm with Captain on this one, sorry John. The "sand" is from the bottom of the port in Puerto del Rosario. It's the same grey colour as the sand used for widening Playa Chica in PDR.

EDIT: Here's a link to one of many articles mentioning the origin of the sand.
