Siam Park Gran Canaria won’t occur if Marco Aurelio Pérez returns as mayor, says authorized advisor : The Canary

Cíe contacted the newspaper following statements made by the chief of the PP-AV, within the southern municipality, in an interview about his return to native politics. After 4 years within the capital, main the PP in opposition, on the Cabildo de Gran Canaria, the previous mayor of San Bartolomé de Tirajana (SBT) is operating for native workplace as soon as once more.

“If Marco Aurelio Pérez’s staff wins, we gained’t transfer the undertaking ahead; we don’t belief him; he deceived us for 4 years,” warns the lawyer, talking on behalf of the Kiessling household, homeowners of Loro Parque. They accuse Pérez of doing every part in his energy to forestall Siam Park from changing into a actuality throughout his time because the mayor.

On this sense, Marco Aurelio Pérez’s statements within the interview, a few new Plan for Modernisation, Enchancment, and Competitiveness (PMM) for El Veril not being the suitable instrument to supply protection, whose drafting has already been commissioned by the Authorities of the Canary Islands, solely confirmed Loro Parque’s suspicions concerning the former mayor’s intentions. “He’s again to his technique of false truths, deceiving public opinion,” complains Rodríguez Cíe.

The Supreme Courtroom rejected the plan that facilitated Siam Park
Siam Park got here to a standstill simply because the SBT City Corridor, was about to grant it a license throughout this mandate, now coming to an finish. This was after a Supreme Courtroom (TS) ruling in June 2022 confirmed the nullity of the PMM that had already been dictated by the Superior Courtroom of Justice of the Canary Islands (TSJC) in December 2020.

The III Chamber of the TS rejected the attraction filed by the Gran Canaria Island Water Council, the Cabildo, and the Authorities of the Canary Islands in opposition to the TSJC ruling, detecting a kind defect within the file. Within the process for granting the concession for the water park, no express document had been included in a report on the existence of adequate water sources.

Given this situation, and by settlement of all of the concerned administrations, the most effective resolution to rescue and relaunch Siam Park was to draft a brand new PMM, however the former mayor already warned on this newspaper that he doesn’t share that strategy. “As soon as once more, he hints at his opposition to the undertaking, as a result of he by no means goes straight, however relatively will get twisted up with half-truths or lies,” claims Jaime Rodríguez Cíe.

“Pérez is mendacity once more”
Rodríguez Cíe claims that Marco Aurelio Pérez “is mendacity once more” insisting that “He’s leaving us with the mark of what his actions have been: not shifting Siam Park ahead; he has defended different exterior pursuits.”

In truth lawyer recalled that in 2019, the TSJC (Canary Islands Excessive Courtroom) recognised Loro Parque’s thesis that the City Council, throughout Marco Aurelio Pérez’s time, subjected them to an “administrative tangle to delay the license” and abused the correction procedures. Subsequently, the promoter attributes an categorical try and cease the water park to the previous mayor, warning “We already know him, we won’t proceed with him.”

If that’s what occurs, it will likely be tough to attempt to match Siam Park into another municipality. Mogán has already been studied, in its day, however it was deemed not viable. Nonetheless, it’s clear that this doesn’t imply that Loro Parque is giving up on Gran Canaria, the place their Poema del Mar aquarium is already open within the capital. “We don’t give Marco Aurelio that a lot significance; moreover, firms endure over time, politicians don’t,” stated Loro Parque’s authorized advisor.

€15 million in bills alone, and €22 million yearly that the administration doesn’t gather
Loro Parque’s authorized consultant says he regrets the ordeal that the undertaking has gone via regardless of the benefits claimed for therefore prestigious a undertaking. He factors out that regardless of the corporate’s dedication to Siam Park, it has accrued 7 years of delays and €15 million in bills, along with having misplaced €8 million in incentives from the Canary Islands Funding Reserve (RIC).

However he warns that not solely has Loro Parque misplaced, but additionally the general public administrations themselves, which haven’t been in a position to gather the €22 million yearly that will have been due over the course of those 7 years years, and the island’s economic system too has misplaced, which may have benefited from an funding of greater than €120 million that will have generated greater than 600 jobs.

Trying again, he emphasises that it was the island’s ex-president, José Miguel Bravo de Laguna, throughout his time on the head of the Cabildo de Gran Canaria, who proposed to the property builders the potential of investing on the island after numerous research discovered that the South had an actual deficit of first-rate leisure choices.

From there, the undertaking has gone via a number of hurdles which have delayed it, some brought about on objective, he factors out, akin to these of Marco Aurelio Pérez, and others by omission, such because the one attributed to the present president of the Cabildo, Antonio Morales. “He didn’t assume the political problem of management from the executive viewpoint.”

Among the many key causes that, in Rodríguez Cíe’s  opinion, clarify what occurred, is the truth that Marco Aurelio Pérez went from non-enthusiastic assist for the undertaking, to utilizing it as a political software in opposition to Antonio Morales. “He caught us within the center.” And, given what has been seen, the corporate believes that the previous mayor continues to be on the identical web page. “We don’t need to intrude in politics or within the electoral debate, we simply need to make our place clear based mostly on our expertise; we already know him.”
