Tomas Maestre Marina’s concession is due to expire next year
The owners of Puerto Tomas Maestre Marina in Murcia, Spain fear they will be left in limbo in 10 months’ time when their concession certificate expires on 23 April 2023.
The authorisation permitting boats to moor on this property, which was granted 50 years ago, expires in April 2023. Althought the Ministry of Public Development has announced its intention to renew the concession, the Association of Mooring Right Holders is concerned that time is slipping by and there has still not been any announcement of an extension to the current authorisation.
The Association wants the Regional Ministry to extend the current concession for another 20 years so as not to be in a precarious situation, and end up like the majority of marinas in Murcia, which in some cases have had their concession expired for up to 10 years, such as Los Nietos.
If that happens, there will only be three legally licensed marinas remaining in Murcia – Aguilas, Lo Pagan and Mazarron.
