The Chipiona City Council has presented the contingency plan with which it intends to impose basic security measures during the summer. The City Council has limited the capacity of its beaches and has enabled an application that will avoid queues in the event of closure, as happened last weekend in Cádiz, capital or Conil.
"Given the exceptional nature of the summer that is beginning, the City Council will make beach occupancy data available to beach users in real time," explains a municipal statement. The information will be available through signage with Qr codes distributed in different strategic points of the population and at the entrances to the beaches, on the municipal website and in the tourism area, as well as in the App of the consistory itself, a newly implanted tool.
Mario Aparcero, mayor of the town, and the delegate of beaches, Lucas Díaz, announced the measures that will be applied just the first weekend in which the arrival of visitors from Seville and other Andalusian provinces is allowed.
The Chipiona beaches will be divided into 30 sectors to ensure greater control. Those that allow it will have divisions by marked sectors depending on the dry sand sheet available. Fixed vertical signs will help to find the separation distances between the family units and, where appropriate, the umbrellas. A transit zone will also be established that cannot be occupied and that is intended to facilitate access and ensure passage along the shore.
In the humid area, as long as the tides allow, umbrellas can be temporarily placed, but will have to be vacated when you go up to leave the six-meter traffic strip next to the shore.
Regarding the schedules, it has been advanced that the strip from 10:00 to 21:00 h. It will be the one planned to enjoy the beach depending on the capacity, from 21:00 to 23:00 these spaces will be gradually evacuated to subsequently proceed with the cleaning of the dry area, where it will not be possible to stay. From 6:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. You can now wander around all areas without hindering cleaning, although you cannot place umbrellas or reserve spaces.
