Once again, students from the Royal Holloway University of London have visited the town of Nerja to study aspects of tourism, agriculture, youth activities, urban planning and the environment. During these days the students visited different areas of Nerja and Maro performing field work related to various aspects of the local economy.
One of the activities performed each year was to visit the Nerja Town Hall to raise various issues with the technical council. The event took place in the Plenary Hall with various council members present including Inocencia Quinerto from the Residents Association, Sandra Jimena from the Youth department, José Alberto Tomé (sports), and for technical issues, Alberto and Maria Estela Portillo Garcia.
At the meeting students were also interested in issues such as integration of foreign residents, youth unemployment, sustainable development and education. At the end of the ceremony at City Hall they received some promotional material of Nerja.
Three of the students also called into one of the local estate agents, Edwards Estates in Nerja, and interviewed Robert Edwards on questions surrounding the effect of the Euro on the Spanish property market, both before and since its introduction, as well as general questions about the state of the current property market.
