Please vote to help stop this Town Hall Proposal
« on: September 20, 2019, 08:04:07 AM »
This is a post from Vera Playa Friends Facebook Forum.

The Town Hall is proposing to turn the area adjacent to The Vera Natura Chiringuito (sometimes known as the Sol Y Luna) into a Dog Park for all.  Of course, this will seriously impact on the Naturist Zone.

Please follow the link and sign.

“The Vera town hall has started a vote on facebook about creating a dog park in the area used by Naturists to play petanque. 

I think this is an *** extremely *** bad idea. 

This area is used every day by Naturists who play petanque. Anyone who knows the Naturist neighborhood would know that. Our new mayor said that he wanted to support the Naturist zone, yet the first thing that has been suggested while he is Mayor is to remove an area where Naturists meet and socialize. This idea is a mistake and should be abandoned immediately.

At the moment I write this 1.3k people have voted. They can't all be living in Vera Playa.

Consequently, please click on the link below and vote NO.  Also please send the link to all your friends and the members of any Naturist associations that you belong to and ask them to vote NO as well.

Thank you.”

You’re absolutely correct, almost immediately the Town Hall deleted the poll then published the information that 80% were in favour of the proposal.

We responded with a letter to the Town Hall including a screenshot of the final result.  I am now distributing questionnaires, asking what we Naturists would like doing with this plot of land. They are available from ‘Vera Natura’ Chiringuito and there is a Post Box for completed ones there, or contact me directly to request some and return them to La Menara postbox.  I have about 60 responses already, all with constructive alternative suggestions.

A quick update

I printed 200 questionnaires and had 133 returned!  131 made it in time to be included in the package to the Town Hall, with a covering letter.

It was a ‘free response’ questionnaire, with no hints or tips as to what to write.  About 50% of the respondents were Spanish, next biggest group Brits but a good mix of all Northern Europeans.

The most popular response was Children’s Playground, Pétanque Pistes, outdoor exercise equipment, ‘Green Zone’ with trees and planting, Tables, seating, shade and a public use BBQ.

Many people commented ‘Not a Dog Park’.  In fact that was the single comment of some responders, and a significant number mentioned ‘Solo Naturista’.

I delivered it to the Town Hall on Friday, having taken the precaution of photographing each one, since the previous inaccurate reporting of its own Facebook Poll, which turned a 68% vote against the dog park into an 80% vote in favour!

So, for me it has been a busy week!  We intend to ‘keep up the pressure’,  Bob and Anthony are now working on a satirical piece, with a funny cartoon, that we are hoping will be published and I have been contacted for information by a journalist.
