Criticism of decision to demolish old barracks in Ronda

The opposition parties in Ronda are critical of the Council decision to spend €600,000 on demolishing the old Concepción barracks in the town, a project which has doubled in cost after the discovery that much of the roof was corrugated iron and contained asbestos.

The PP, IU and PA say that the building does not belong to Ronda Council and should be demolished by the Ministry of Defence if it is deemed to be in such poor condition as to require pulling down.

The parties believe that it is unfair for the citizens of Ronda to have to pay for the demolition and say that the money could be better spent on other projects, such as encouraging new businesses, improvements to schools or turning the building into a cultural centre.
