Participation from the public needed

DENIA: Planning ahead for the next 20 years.

DRAWING up Denia’s General Structural Plan (PGE), has reached the stage where residents can have their say.

After a series of discussion meetings where the public will be able to air their views, the results will be incorporated into the long-awaited ‘Plan.’

 A succession of General Urban Development Plans (PGOUs), and PGEs, were previously rejected by the Generalitat and the courts. But order can now be brought to earlier planning confusion, according to Denia mayor Vicent Grimalt.

The absence of town planning and legal uncertainty had between them “consolidated anarchical territorial methods,” Grimalt lamented. 

A durable PGE and the discussion meetings will provide an opportunity to debate and propose the planning model that residents want for the town over the next 20 years, the mayor said.

He was speaking during a talk on ‘Territory and Local Government’ which was the starting point for the discussion meetings.  

“The town hall wants to count on as much public participation as possible,” said Urban Quality councillor Maria Josep Ripoll, who called on residents to help create “the best Denia in the world.”
