After long years of negotiations, proposals, and confrontations over its poor condition, the neighborhood of Las 200 Viviendas de Roquetas de Mar may soon be able to receive funds for its long-awaited, comprehensive rehabilitation. Gabriel Amat, the mayor, announced yesterday that a project is being prepared for Next Generation funds from European Union. This will be through the Plan Ecovivienda aid program. The final investment amount would be 12,882,891 euro. This would include 6,1.26% financing by the regional administration and 38.74% contributions from the Rock Consistory. That would translate into a total investment of 4,990,531 Euros.
This action envisages the rehabilitation of 340 dwellings. It is divided into 34 blocks with 6 dwellings per blocks with a maximum height of 3 stories above ground, 6 blocks with 20 dwellings each block with 5 floors aboveground, and 2 blocks with 8 apartments per block, with a maximum height of 3 levels above ground. These houses are all subject to rehabilitation and can be found around the Plaza de Andalucia, a rock neighborhood, and adjacent streets.
The program of actions will not only include the complete rehabilitation of buildings and improvements in their envelopes but also thermal installations interventions and improvements to accessibility. To improve accessibility and energy efficiency, as well as increase accessibility and accessibility, the roadway space will be redesigned and urbanized.
Gabriel Amat, Roquetas De Mar's mayor, spoke out in support of the rehabilitation project. It is designed to improve the quality of a neighborhood that has been neglected, lacks facilities, and its public spaces and urbanization have poor quality. This creates serious problems at the socio-economic and social levels.
In recent years, opposition proposals have focused on the poor condition of the neighborhood and its rehabilitation. The PSOE actually disfigured the municipal government team a few months back, so that the City Council didn't take advantage of the assistance plans that the Junta de Andalucia regularly calls for. This intervention has now been completed.
This neighborhood has a high immigrant population and has been the subject of many integration projects. It presents issues of dirt, maintenance and basic services.
