The mayor will listen to the suggestions and alternative suggestions of the residents of the areas in which it is proposed to widen streets
The mayor of Xàbia, José Chulvi, will meet next week with the neighbourhood associations of the Calles Soberana, Italia and Cantallops to listen to their suggestions and opinions on the changes in the layout of these roads contained the current proposal of the general structural plan, now in the public consultation phase.
The mayor has shown his predisposition to seek an agreement and a compromise solution that makes the defense of the territory, the interests of the residents and the future needs of the municipality compatible. Because, as stressed by Chulvi, the local government advocates a “protectionist planning of the territory”, as it reduces the constructed area by about seven million square meters and proposes sustainable growth for companies. And, above all, that it “guarantees that it maintains its identity”, which implies “respecting the historical constructions and the landscapes characteristic of our town”.
Both Chulvi and the councillor of Urban Planning, Isabel Bolufer, have made it clear that the General Plan is still not firm, but “a proposal”, is currently at the public consultation stage and therefore remains open to debate and changes.
In this regard, the mayor reminds us that, precisely with this intention, the period of exposure of the PGE was doubled to 90 days (compared to 45 required by Law) and convened information meetings in the Arenal, the Port in addition to two Urban Planning Councils: “to offer maximum transparency and seek the greatest consensus.”
Continuing with this willingness for discussion, knowing the concern that this plan has generated in roads such as La Soberana, Italia & Cantallops, municipal representatives want to hear first hand their needs, the possible problems they detect in the route proposed y this document and their suggestions.
Moreover, the mayor describes this as “a historic opportunity for resolution in a manner agreed by and satisfactory for all” some urban problems that have continued since the 1990 General Plan and that cause uncertainty in residents and owners.
