It was drawn up at the beginning of the Spanish democratic period in the 1980s at the initiative of Malaga City Council, making it one of the first revisions of the general planning of provincial capitals in Spain. It highlights the principles of “urban planning” formulated by the architect Manuel Solá-Morales, who acted as an advisor to the drafting team. With regard to growth, the plan is to redirect its natural expansion towards the Vega del Guadalhorce with the “Teatinos” operation and towards the “Litoral Oeste” by rearranging the primitive industrial area, delimiting growth towards the Montes de Málaga. Other singular interventions such as those defined in the Historic Centre, the new Teatinos University Campus, the Technology Park, the Cemetery, the Transport Centre, the Renfe Plan and Intermodal Bus Centre, the Port Plan, the new Ring Roads, the Levante and Poniente Seafront Promenades, the new Mediterranean, Huelin and Morlaco Parks… and an endless number of facilities and neighbourhood gardens complete the set of proposals and interventions. It was drawn up by the architects D. Quero, S. Moreno and J. Seguí, and was awarded the National Town Planning Prize by the Ministry of Public Works in 1985.
