  I have read about the history which is about average for any Spanish urbanization. (bit of history on that......it was normal for developers to get the nod from the local mayor to build, the town hall would then fine them for unlicensed builds, which put money in the town hall coffers and the mayors pocket.  Then the government changed the law that made the town hall liable and they had to pay any fine for illegal builds......things changed rapidly).  Ours still has half of the properties without urbanization certs.   Couple of questions please........crime, is there much?   Police, is there a police presence.  Transport, it seems I will need to be tea total unless I live on A or B (wife can't walk too far).  Approx how much is the IBI tax for 2 bed house?  Will be having a rent as soon as Covid permits.   Thanks in advance.

Crime.......No more than anywhere else in Spain or the UK.

Police.......Police presence yes but no police station.

IBI Tax......On a Fiesta 2 bedroom model approx 151 euro per year.

Car...........You could get away with no car on A & B but you will severely restrict yourself to what you can & can't do.

You should only take advice from people that actually live on Camposol .. poster's like Spanglish do not live on Camposol ...so they can only give you the story that they heard from Tony down the pub that he in turn got from his mate Pete down the pub...I have had a place on Camposol for 13 years ...it has a great community especially on D sector ...you will need transportation of some kind no matter what part of Camposol you live on .

I ask the question because it reflects the town hall's interest and commitment to the place.   Police cost them money!!!   We get patrols from local police and GC and every voting year a promise of a police station that never materialises.  We get robberies in bursts, five in one week then nothing for three months.  Travelling rogues.....

There used to be a police office in the Commercial Centre on A many years ago.
