The Councillor for Culture and Tourism in the Region of Murcia, Pedro Cruz, recently confirmed that an environmental impact study for the proposed installation of a Paramount Theme Park in the Alhama de Murcia municipality has been completed. In fact, according to Cruz, the diggers are waiting to move in as soon as plans are approved by Alhama council, Murcia Today has reported.
The document is to be sent to Alhama de Murcia Town hall, following several months of delay. Groundworks at the park are expected to begin as soon as the council in Alhama approves the modification of Alhama’s urban plan.
No announcement has yet been forthcoming from Premursa to indicate that all the necessary finances and investors are now in place for the construction to go ahead, so this news will be eagerly awaited by local businesses as the diggers move in and the earthmoving begins.
The Paramount theme park is set to be open by 2015 and it will be the largest in Spain and the second largest in Europe. Located just 20 minutes from the soon-to-be-completed international airport currently being constructed at Corvera, 30 minutes from the city of Murcia and 15 minutes from the beaches of the Mediterranean and the Mar Menor, the park will be zoned into four different thematic areas, featuring several luxury hotels and resorts, shopping malls, restaurants, bars and clubs, a conference centre and an open-air auditorium.
Buyers considering bargain property in Costa Blanca South can expect to benefit from the growth potential of the area, which offers many possibilities for leisure, cultural, tourist and sporting activities.
