Major investment promised in Costa Almeria works and services

THE provincial government is promising a major investment in works and services across Almeria over the next four years. The Diputacion de Almeria said the 2020-2023 Works and Services Provincial Plans represent the greatest investment in this area of responsibility in the history of the provincial administration. Unveiling details of the plans this week, Diputacion President Javier A. Garcia and Public Works delegate Oscar Liria revealed investment had been increased by nearly €12 million to just short of €72 million in the province’s 103 municipalities. Garcia identified the main objectives of the plans as addressing the problem of depopulation in smaller inland areas, improving basic infrastructure, creating equality of opportunities and smartening up municipalities. He highlighted the point that the plans prioritise investment per inhabitant in the province’s smallest municipalities. Specifically, average investment per person in the smallest areas is, he said, a massive 5,000 per cent greater than in the biggest municipalities. He cited the specific example of Benitagla in the Filabres mountains which has less than 70 residents, and in which the earmarked investment is €779.34 per inhabitant. This compares with €14.69 in Almeria city and Roquetas de Mar. The €72 million will be financed by the Diputacion and by the local councils.
