NIJAR councillors voted in favour of solving the problem of housing for temporary agricultural workers.
The town hall, which is basing its solution on a study carried out by Granada University, will eliminate their settlements of lean-to shacks and provide collective accommodation.
This is likely to be located in Los Grillos where the municipality intends to buy 3,000 square metres of land.
“Obviously we cannot give anyone a house, but we can provide accommodation that allows them to live in decent conditions,” Nijar’s mayor Esperanza Perez Felices said.
“We are not trying to find a standard solution,” Perez Felices added.
“We are limiting ourselves to Nijar but if our method is of use to anyone they are welcome to copy it.”
