As a property owner in the Marbella district (from Cabopino to San Pedro) it’s important that you keep in touch with changes to the rules and regulations from the Town Hall. However, in the past this has been hard for property owners who do not live in the area or who do not speak Spanish.
Over the years they have been working hard to create a strong and helpful foreign residents department, which they are creating a larger building to house it in. But now they have taken another positive step and launched a radio programme in English called Mi Marbella where Town Hall representatives come in to talk about changes, rules and regulations and respond to listeners’ questions. This offers a new and useful channel of communication with the Town Hall in English and is a great way to air views.
The show also covers issues relevant to foreign residents in general, interviews local businesses, talks about upcoming events and generally gets people talking about what it means to own property, live and work in Marbella. It is broadcast at 3.30pm – 5 pm, Wednesdays to Fridays and you can listen online here http://rtv.marbella.es/radio/radio-online.html
The local expat newspapers are also available online and are great sources of information. Here are the three main ones which are available for free online:
