The work will reach 241,000 euros, financed by the remainder of the treasury and whose processing will go through plenary session next week. The mayor of Sports explained that the adaptation of the interior of the premises will be added to the fitting out of a glazed terrace, which will allow the spaces to be expanded. In the current bathroom building there will be three toilets and a warehouse and measures will be applied throughout the complex to guarantee accessibility. The objective is “to put the project out to tender as soon as possible”, so that the cafeteria is already open before next summer. Parallel to the work, the City Council will draw up the specifications to put the management of the business out to public tender. According to estimates based on a feasibility study, the concession would be between five and six years.

The City Council trusts that, once it is up and running, this service will contribute to “attracting events”. “We have a commitment from the Federation that it will be the reference field for Asturias and northern Spain to be able to bring national teams to train,” Garcia said. The cafeteria is not the only intervention planned for the municipal golf course, where the City Council will install a hunting enclosure using the funds obtained from the tourism sustainability plan. “There is a before and after,” said Riestra about the improvements in sports.
