ALICANTE City is urging banks to provide housing for social purposes in emergency situations.The call from local government comes after it was revealed that seven families with 14 children have occupied an entire building owned by a bank in the Carolinas Altas neighbourhood.The Department of Social Welfare and Housing has intervened in this case and is studying the dossiers for the families evicted from their homes at different times, and, according to the Platform of People Affected by Mortgages (PAH), have requested a house before the Municipal Board of Housing and Infrastructure. “The problem is that there is no social housing on the Board and yet there are many families at risk of exclusion; there are not enough homes,” said councillor for Social Action and Housing, Nerea Belmonte.As a result, the City Council will meet with the different banks and will ask them to provide empty properties to relieve the crisis and situation. “They (the banks) are part of the origin of the crisis and must also be part of the solving of the problem,” said the councillor.
