San Antonio Council has finally presented its plans for terraces in the town centre. For this summer all terraces must now ‘close’ at midnight however non-musical establishments (restaurants etc) can apply for a 2am extension.
This extension does not apply to the area known as the West End where all terraces need to be closed by 12am midnight without exception.
Juanjo Ferrer, the councillor responsible for urban planning said that he had listened to various groups and associations and modified the change from 11pm to midnight.
Interestingly Señor Ferrer also said the new law is “to favour the general interest over a few who are the rotten apples of the town”.
Pepe Sala, spokesman for the opposition, said that the new law was ‘arbitrary’ and runs ‘the risk of becoming discriminatory’.
