The new Platanias Municipality covers an area of a particular terrain with exceptional natural beauty. It reaches from the northern cosmopolitan beaches of the island to the scenic paths of the Lefka Ori (White Mountains) and the Omalos Plateau.
It is a land with a rich tradition and culture. It is financially active in many fields and attracts investors especially in the tourist industry.
The new Municipality of Platanias is responsible, particularly in difficult economic circumstances like the ones we’re undergoing, to make up for the shortcomings of the past, the inequalities and lack of homogeneity arising either from the varied landscape or from the distorted economic development of past years and to offer more up-to-date services focusing on the prosperity and well-being of its inhabitants.
The new Municipal Authority believes that one of the most significant tool towards achieving its aims is the wide use of technology so that the Municipality of Platanias will become a pioneer and set an example. There are significant works being carried out while, at the same time, the existing facilities are being used.
