IU asks that the CARM allow to benefit from the direct subsidies for the purchase of housing for young people from the districts of Lorca (06/11/2018)

The councilor of this training, Gloria Martin, asks the regional government to address the criterion of territorial dispersion when it comes to facilitating access to this type of subsidy, since in the towns of Lorca there is the same need to fix the population to the territory than in municipalities such as Albudeite, Aledo, Pliego or Campos del Río

The councilor of Izquierda Unida-Verdes, Gloria Martin, has asked the Ministry of Development to allow young people residing in Lorca deputations at risk of depopulation, eligible for direct aid for the acquisition of a property.

Martín made reference to the Order of September 26, 2018 by which Fomento approved the regulatory bases of the grants for access to housing in the Region of Murcia for the period between 2018 and 2021.

It is direct aid of up to 10,800 euros for the acquisition of housing by young people under 35 years.

However, this regulation only allows beneficiaries of subsidies to those who reside in municipalities with a population of less than 5,000 inhabitants.

Therefore, the measure, which the mayor of IU described as "interesting" to fight against depopulation, is not applicable to young people from Lorca who reside in one of the Lorca councils threatened by this phenomenon.

Martín explained that in Coy, La Paca, Pozo Higuera or Ramonete, to mention only some of the Lorca deputations, "there is the same need to fix the young population to the territory than in municipalities such as Albudeite, Aledo, Pliego or Campos del Río".

In that sense, he recalled that Lorca, with 1,675 km² and 39 councils is a "complex", "exceptionally extensive" and "very dispersed" population, which exemplified with the 84.90 km that separate, by road, the population centers of Puntas de Calnegre and Doña Inés, "which is more than the distance that exists between the urban case of Lorca and the capital of the Region".

Therefore, Martin has asked the regional government to address the criterion of territorial dispersion, "not only to facilitate access to this type of aid but on such elementary issues as the City Council's funding."

"The Administrations have to understand that in rural Lorca 35,000 people live and that most of them, especially the youngest ones, can not avoid leaving it because of the lack of services and opportunities that affect them," he said.

"We think it is good that the Ministry is sensitive to the threat of depopulation and to establish aid to encourage the purchase of housing in municipalities of less than 5,000 inhabitants," said Martin, who, however, said that "you can not discriminate against who have the same problem in deputations that are authentic towns even though they do not have that status from the administrative point of view ".

Therefore, Martin will move a motion to the next municipal plenary session so that the City Council urges the regional government to amend the Order of the Ministry of Development in the sense that it allows access to these grants to young people living in the districts of Lorca.
