Battle Of The Bar Terraces In Javea

Battle Of The Bar Terraces In Javea

Recently some bar owners have been asked to dismantle their  terraces which are set up in parking spaces outside their bars. there followed a meeting at the town hall, where very few bar owners attended, and since then all has been quiet!

It seems the problem has been brought to the attention of the town hall by digruntled businesses who feel the terraces have used up valuable parking spaces. Though I expect their popularity may also have something to do with it.

Javea Town Hall; Enforcing White Tables On Pavements!
Javea Council Get Tough

True when signing up for terraces, the owners are told it must be taken in at night! However if that is the case, what do they do when the spaces are occupied overnight and cannot be used the next day after they have paid for them?

I for one as a non smoker and carer of a wheelchair bound friend  love the terraces. It means when we go walking we don’t  have to hold our breath on pavements outside bars as clients get their nicotine fix! When we are out walking we do not have to negotiate and weave in and out of tables on the pavement.

I also think these terraces enhance the area, which lets face it people come to for the sun, so what better way to enjoy it, whilst keeping local businesses going.

I think the town hall would be doing the area a great injustice  in taking these away!  And lets no forget the owners pay the town hall for the privilege of using the spaces, whereas people parking pay nothing.
