Silves Council is to build a caravan park in Messines as part of an expansion of the motorhome parking area network across Silves, Tavira and São Brás de Alportel.
The total cost of projects in these Council areas is €590,000, attracting a 70% grant from the European Regional Development Fund.
The Silves Council project has been approved and work began a while ago to provide a motorhome service area of 30 spaces in Messines, with the possibility of additional facilities including a reception area, a service station, fencing and gardens, washing and toilet facilities, a water network and lighting.
With a total area of around 5,500 m2, the Messines motorhome service area is part of a wider development that will include the Bus Terminal and an area for markets and events, plus car parking.
It is hoped that the new caravan park and bus terminal in Messines will be completed by the end of 2020.
Tavira and São Brás de Alportel Councils have yet to announce the location of their additional motorhome parks.
