The Socialists show its concern "about the lack of interest in reactivating PP-cultural tourism potential of Lorca" (20/08/2009)

The Municipal Socialist Group this morning has shown concern about the apparent lack or decline in the number of tourist visitors to the city and its municipality.

Collins explained the decline in visitors was verified and the last Easter, where visitor numbers fell dramatically, leaving a large number of locations to watch the parade without selling.

This data according Collado, "was ignored by the PP government team, which did not intend to take appropriate measures in time to prevent this situation was increasing, passivity which has resulted in these times in which the summer is coming to an end, it seems as Collado Lorca: "a sad and half-empty town, no tourists, no trips and no innovative appeal.

This situation, as the mayor said Leoncio Collado on behalf of the Socialist Group, is attributed to "a neglect of tourism promotion and publicity", a situation unthinkable in other cities that are contrary to Lorca "to the flag of visitors and tourist occupation, as is the case of La Union, San Javier, Cartagena, Caravaca, Calasparra, Mojacar, Murcia, cities in which it is impossible to make a reservation.

This drop in the number of tourist visitors to Lorca, is not inconsistent with the performance of the different works are being undertaken in the city, mainly on the street López Gisbert, as in the cities mentioned above the situation is identical.

The reasons, according to Collins, we must look at the decline of the great summer festival Espirelia, assuming a "hack to weekend visitors as well as the hospitality sector.

From the Municipal Socialist Group is considered to be to start a revival in tourism by the City Council responsible for encouraging visits to museums, monuments, night tours offer animated with music, poetry, theater.

Collins asked, "If Lorca is a tourist destination, why museums are dying?, Why Castle gives a poor image with a significant decrease in the number of visitors despite its great potential of tourism and culture?, Is not makers should consider the tourism sector, the "copy" or analyze a project that works in Europe?

Collado other hand, showed lack of foresight by the municipality, which developed before the works in the downtown area that is the Tourist Information Office, no transfer of this pose the Cultural Center , which is equipped with new technologies and infrastructures for temporary shelters, and how tourist information points installed in designated areas such as The Plaza of Spain, "the heart of historic Lorca" and at the entrances to the city, To facilitate the visitor the information needed to make a journey "ideal of our city and its boundaries: Highland Natural Places ..."

Similarly the Municipal Socialist Group asks "Why has failed lighting project and access Castillo de Lorca Taller del Tiempo to the Torre Alfonsina, why are unattractive billboards installed on the sides of the highways?, being inconspicuous to anyone who walks by, with some 32,000 vehicles which may come to pass every day on the other hand, being indifferent to the person who does not even guess that promotes the panel.

Collado on behalf of the Socialist Group issued the request to conduct a meeting with the Consortium Lorca Taller del Tiempo, which shows a "conformity" with the situation.

According to the council "will take years to recover losses suffered in terms of sightseeing and economic"

LTT, after 10 years, should have improved the results of all kinds, tourist, hotel, commercial, economic and sector in general, preventing other cities how Caravaca Cartagena or 6 or 10 multiplied by the number of visitors, should increase advertising in tourism promotion as "lights to separate" little or no advertised.

Lorca has to react and work with the tourism industry: travel agencies, hoteliers, restaurants, LTT, City Hall, to innovate in services how to create a Local Agency to attract visitors, new forms of advertising Lorca, new offerings with a new management model through a Bureau of Tourism, to get to develop a Local Plan for Effective Promotion of Lorca.

Collado, also expressed his disagreement and warns that it is wrong on that day which made the regional government linking tourism with culture, assuming for the deterioration in their Lorca tourists "paying the price" of the merger.

It also referred to the Minister of Culture, president of the Consortium and the Board of Governors does not even come to Lorca for information.

To end Collado said "that from the Murcia Regional Government should designate a person who is aware of the bad situation that cross-cultural tourism Lorca, reflected in the figures, which followed a descending tone, assuming for this year a 30% loss in number of visitors and occupation.
