Works delayed

Tavira Câmara President Macário Correia has said that urban renewal works in Cabanas de Tavira will be on hold until the end of the summer season.

The work, which is part of the Polis Litoral Ria Formosa, a conservation and regeneration project for the area, was halted after residents and business owners handed a petition with more than 200 signatures to the Câmara, requesting it to be delayed until after the summer.

The redevelopment, which will cost an estimated two million euros, is expected to take 10 months, with completion predicted for May 2010.
