Elche City Council to receive a grant of almost a whopping €10M


IN A BID to spruce up the city, the Mayor of Elche, Carlos Gonzalez, has announced that the City Council has received €9,963,980 to carry out a facelift on the Porfirio Pascual neighbourhood in Carrus.

The mayor explained, “the Consell has now authorised the granting of subsidies for the rehabilitation of the neighbourhood as part of the Plan for Recovery, Transformation and Resilience. Elche is lucky and happens to be one of the three municipalities to receive the largest subsidy for the recovery of this neighbourhood.”

“The aim is to transform and convert Porfirio Pascual into a 21st century neighbourhood,” the mayor added.

The proposed urban environment action affects an area made up of 18 buildings and 302 homes, with a population of 774 people. The area is characterised by the high vulnerability of its residents in the residential, economic and social spheres and by a serious situation of substandard housing.

Pimesa will be the managing body for this action, commissioned by the Local Government Board.
