In Malaga there are three ZONES for parking on public streets:

  • GREEN ZONE: Residents, also free of charge
  • BLUE ZONE: Subject to charges (must be paid in advance in the SMASSA offices, Tel: 952 060 104 http://www.aparcamientosmalaga.com/). A copy of the receipt must be provided to the MFO in order to coordinate the reservation of the space.

HOW DO I REQUEST A TRAFFIC INTERRUPTION FOR FILMING?

We ask that you request any traffic alterations at least 5 days prior to the shoot. The request must indicate: whether the interruption is total or intermittent, the street(s) involved and the schedule of the interruption. The Traffic Department asks that you schedule any daytime interruption on Sundays and to avoid traffic peak times in order to cause minimal inconveniences to citizens.
