The city has been waited more than 11 years until the state intervene in the problem. And finally, Cannes has a result. The territory of the hotel complex Le masque de Fer, built in 1919, by Weber family and closed for disrepair in 2005, begins its rebirth.
A large area of Le masque de Fer at the island of Saint-Marguerite was completely cleared and ready for a new beach area. Permission for clearing the area was also signed on 8 July 2016. The state plans to open a beach in autumn 2017, when all the work for improvement will be completed. Place in the recreation area is large enough for more than 4200m², so there is a lot of work there. A the deputy of department of urban planning, municipal heritage, management port and the shoreline of Cannes Christophe Fiorentino said, "repair work at that site will contribute to the improvement of the environment and the beach itself will be one more excellent spot for a holiday on the Cote d'Azur."
