Tabaiba began to be urbanized, privately, when the Southern Highway (TF-1) was not yet designed, and after a long period of disagreements between the local Administration of El Rosario and the owners, in this century, both Tabaiba Baja , Medium and High are integrated into municipal services.
The Department of Ecological Transition, Fight against Climate Change and Territorial Planning of the Government of the Canary Islands recently began the work of reforming the Tabaiba coastline.
These works, with a cost of 1.8 million eurosare aimed at the improvement and restoration of the current breakwater located on the esplanade in front of the promenade, the improvement of accessibility to the sea for citizens, the conditioning and integration of the esplanade as a stay area and the correction of impacts on the beach in the area, among others.
Through this project, a deteriorated space will be recovered for the enjoyment of citizens with several accesses to the sea through stairs, and solariums for sunbathing. The initiative to reform the esplanade in front of Tabaiba was commissioned and financed by the El Rosario City Council, after the approval of the action by the Provincial Coastal Directorate.
Throughout the development of the works, noble and durable materials will be used, under the principle of environmental integration, and vegetation typical of the marine environment will be planted to favor shaded spaces in several selected points of the coastal front. The planned works will contribute, among other aspects, to the improvement of the sanitation and domestic wastewater treatment system in the nearby urban area, so that uncontrolled and inappropriate discharges into the sea will not occur.
The mayor of El Rosario, Escolásico Gil, highlights that this project “is a work for which the residents of the area have been waiting for 20 years and with which we meet a citizen demand with which we will renew the entire coastal front of Tabaiba for the enjoyment citizen”.
“We worked together with the winning company to find a solution that allows the accessibility of emergency vehicles, both ambulances, police cars and fire engines, providing greater security in case this type of services were required,” he explained. the mandatary. Likewise, Gil highlighted that a star project that will finally be carried out “will be the reparcelling of Tabaiba Alta and Media, the great pending issue for more than 60 years.”
It is worth remembering that two years ago the owner of the land attached to the current Tabaiba pool, Konstantin Hinner Ivantcheva, son of businessman James D. Velkov, known as the American, signed the free transfer of the 165 square meters of land that they had been blocking. the coastal reform project for six years.
In this way, the El Rosario City Council managed to get the legitimate owners of the two plots affected by the aforementioned project to transfer the land, free of charge, which, in turn, was handed over months later to the Government of the Canary Islands.
