Below is taken from Manliva life forum administrator in response to article in the Town Crier:-
Unfortunately the Town Crier have stuck both feet in their mouth with this one.
We also received a similar 'press release' which has been sent out by a mortgage consultant based in Estepona. Here is a copy of the email we received:
I would like to draw your attention to this great news. The Costa del Sol has been waiting for confirmation of this complex for some years now.
The Disney complex along with the Estepona Football Village and other large infrastructure projects on the coast, will breath new life into the Costa del Sol.
Disney have confirmed dates for their new complex. Adam Rollins chief executive of the National Association of Estate Agents quoted:
“We have been asked by one of our members from Albany Real Estate Search LLP for clarification on the Disney project. After consulting the Spanish authorities we now have more clarity for our international agents and for those selling property in Spain. Disney have confirmed that the framework to be able to take the excess numbers of people and in terms of property, hotels, and transport is now underway with the extension of Malaga airport and roads being able to take excess traffic, and the new train link from Fuengirola to La Linea to start soon. Disney expect to start building in July 2008 - to be done in four phases -the first which is a summer camp to open in April 2009, followed by Disney resort rolling out soon over 45 acres. This will be good news for property owners as well as those wanting to purchase a property in a superb climate. Press launch is Jan 08”
Unlike the Town Crier, I phoned Adam Rollins at the NAEA to ask for more information regarding which Spanish Authorities he had been talking to, only to be told that he had no idea about this article, and was totally ignorant of any Disney plans for this area.
After sending a copy of the email to him, he replied that the NAEA were going to investigate this 'total fabrication'.
I will await his report and publish it as soon as we receive it.
