Terry Venables in row over Spanish sports complex

The Daily Telegraph reports that Terry Venables, the former England football manager has announced proposals for a luxury resort including 13 football pitches, 12 tennis courts, a golf course, horse-riding and sports facilities, a 95-room hotel and 300 housing units to be built in the mountain town of Penaguila.

Local critics claim the construction will destroy a picturesque, beautiful and peaceful part of southern Spain for the benefit of wealthy foreigners.

Mr Venables is reported as saying "It is ironic that it is being criticised by green campaigners when it is going to eco-friendly and sustainable".

Well that's alright then to destroy the natural environment in an eco-friendly way purely for money. Too much of Spain has already been destroyed by greedy developers with projects that the majority of people didn't and don't want or need.

It wouldn't surprise me if the rightwing Partido Popular control the town council of Penaguila as they just love destroying the environment for money.
