Saturday protests in Dénia

Residents of Dénia will take to the streets in protest on Saturday, to express their concern that the Ministry of Ecological Transition have left more than 3,600 properties on the northern coast of Dénia out of plans for demarcation that will commence next week.

There is a 10 kilometre stretch of coastline, from Les Deveses to Les Marines, affected by the move, and so the residents will take to the streets to protest this measure, starting in the part closest to the port of Marqués de Campo, next to the Red Cross, and will continue through the centre of Dénia until it ends at the Glorieta.
