ANA PELLICER and Jose Ramon Gonzalez de Zarate, Citizens’ Participation and Public Works councillors, recently visited Costa Blanca’s Ciudad Jardin-Saladar neighbourhoods.
“Practically all of the neighbourhood’s requests have been attended to,” De Zarate said. “The only failings are those not depending on the town hall.” He was referring to the old Casa de Peones Camineros (Road Labourershouse) in Calle Emilio Ortuño, built decades ago when this central street was on the outskirts of Benidorm. The building, which belongs to the Ministry of Public Works, is in bad condition and occupied by squatters but the town hall cannot obtain a court order to evict them as the application must come from its owner, the councillor explained. The town hall has also asked unsuccessfully for the Ministry’s permission to convert the building for cultural, educational or social use, De Zarate said.
