Benalmádena is the third municipality with the highest population growth in the province

The mayor of Benalmádena, Víctor Navas, this morning analyzed the population data provided by the National Institute of Statistics and the study carried out by various media in the province, which place Benalmádena as the third municipality with the highest population growth in the province of Malaga.

In this way, according to the mayor, the INE data show that “Benalmádena is one of the most attractive cities in the province to reside. To its magnificent climate and geographical location, we add the quality of life and job opportunities that we have managed to offer thanks to the efforts of the public administration, companies and the self-employed.

Benalmádena, with an increase of 1060 people in the register, becomes the third municipality with the highest population growth in the province, only behind Estepona and Mijas.

“Although other large cities such as Malaga, Torremolinos or Fuengirola have lost population as of January 1, 2021, in Benalmádena we continue to add and get closer to 75,000 inhabitants, which would allow us to become a municipality with a large population”, explained Navas .

The different nationalities of the citizens registered in Benalmádena increase to 142, for a total of around 37% of the total population of the municipality.

“The employment data, which are the best in our city since 2006; encourage us to continue working in this good direction, and although we are aware that tourism is our first industry, we try to diversify the business fabric to break seasonality with examples such as the Plaza Solymar technology hub, ”the mayor continued.

On the other hand, Navas also commented that “we know that this population increase has its negative side” since, according to him, mobility and access to housing are affected, and for this reason “we put on the table measures such as free municipal public transport from this year, a private housing stock for social rent or a program to promote the residential rental ”. In addition, he pointed out that “we are preparing a public offer to capture land for the construction of social housing.”

Looking ahead to this year 2022, the mayor has announced that “we will launch registration campaigns with the aim that foreigners who reside in Benalmádena, but are not registered, do so, and thus receive the same tax and other benefits that all the people who appear in the municipal register already enjoy ”.
