This gives clear and understandable details of current and future projects and can also be accessed via by clicking on the banner with the EU symbol. Anybody visiting the website can see how Alfaz town hall is using a €5 million EU grant towards its Sustainable Integrated Urban Development (EDUSI) project, “Alfaz del Pi, Healthy Territory” which has an overall cost of €10 million. Alfaz’s strategy centres on creating a local government that complies with the three priorities set out in the “Europe 2020 Strategy”, the EU’s growth and jobs agenda for the current decade, which emphasises “smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.” The new website also gives details of projects that Alfaz is carrying out with collaboration from the regional government, the Generalitat Valenciana, via the FEDER 2014-2020 programme for the conservation and recovery of cultural and heritage assets. This has provided €500,000 for the Villa Romana excavations and the open-air museum in Albir and €250,000 for the rehabilitation of the 17th century Molide Manec watermill.
