Rehabilitating the Old Town is a priority for Cocentaina

The local council of Cocentaina has launched a new edition of the aid for the rehabilitation of facades.

A total of 25,000 euros has been reserved in the Municipal Budget in order to subsidize all actions requested by residents of the municipality. In addition, the City Council has responded that if there is a high demand for petitions, the amount of money could be increased.

On the other hand, the councillor of finance, Marcos Castelló, explained that these subsidies are complemented with the one used for the repair of roofs in the historic centre, which will open the call in brief. He also recalled that the help to repair the façades began to materialize in 2008, a project where, for now, 1.5 million euros have been invested.

As Castelló affirmed, this is “a figure that translates into actions in more than 140 homes of our population. In addition, in the last annuities, we have extended the calls to those buildings with an age greater than 40 years and, even, interventions have been carried out in the neighbourhoods. ”

The City Council replied that it wanted to remind us that the deadline for submitting applications was extended until June 14 and it was reported that those interested in joining the aid can pass through SIC (Service of Information to the Citizen), by the Department of Urban Planning or by the Technical Office of Heritage
