IU denounces a new paralysis of the reconstruction works of the San Fernando neighborhood (12/02/2018)

Gloria Martín expressed her indignation because the PP Government team presumed to participate, together with representatives of Unesco, in an international congress that has Lorca as a reference for the rehabilitation of cultural heritage, especially ecclesiastical assets, while hundreds of Lorca are still out of their homes almost seven years after the catastrophe

Councilor of United Left-Greens, Gloria Martin, has denounced a new stoppage in the works of reconstruction of the houses of the neighborhood of San Fernando, demolished as a result of the earthquakes of 2011 and that had to have been delivered to their owners in July of 2017.

The new break is due to the lack of payments from the Autonomous Community, which owns several homes, premises and parking spaces, to the construction company.

Martín denounced that the Autonomous Community, owner of only 8% of the urban development of the area, has become an "obstacle" instead of an aid for those affected.

In this regard, he recalled that the City Council promoted, with the votes of PP and Citizens, the expropriation of 78 neighbors, dissatisfied with the chosen model of reconstruction, precisely with the intention that the reconstruction process of this neighborhood would not be halted, something which is now causing the Autonomous Community.

"Instead of seeking consensus and understanding among the neighbors, they got rid of the owners who opposed Ferrovial's offer, which was much more expensive for those affected, through expropriation," said Martín, who added that "they did it with the false excuse that this would speed up the reconstruction process when the reality is that the 232 affected families have been out of their homes for almost seven years due to the problems that the Autonomous Community itself is facing."

Martín also recalled that the Autonomous Community tendered the contract for urban renewal of the Barrio de San Fernando in November last year, which implies at least another twelve months of works in water, electricity or telecommunications networks, which will prevent neighbors go back to their homes.

"Is that the rush that they were going to give themselves? Why did they coax the neighbors with the visit of authorities to a pilot apartment in October 2016, a year and a half ago?" Asked Martín.

The mayor of IU-Greens showed his outrage because the PP government team presumed to participate, along with representatives of Unesco, in an international congress that has Lorca as a reference for the rehabilitation of cultural heritage, especially ecclesiastical assets, while Hundreds of Lorca are still out of their homes almost seven years after the catastrophe.

"If you still have a bit of shame left,

Prefabricated houses

Gloria Martín alluded especially to the situation of twelve families who have lived in prefabricated houses since 2011.

"The City Council has normalized a painful and undesirable situation by which dozens of people, including fourteen minors, live in tin houses withstand, as they can, the rigors of weather," he complained.

The mayor of IU-Greens visited these people again last week and found numerous deficiencies in the place such as lack of attention, cleaning and maintenance by the City Council, as well as the existence of dangerous elements for children in this neighborhood improvised in 2011. As an example, he mentioned that the playground where the children play is full of holes through which the wastewater that flows from the houses circulate, or that the showers enabled initially for the neighbors have become a "focus". of bottles ".

Therefore, he demanded that the Consistory address the situation of these families and provide them with decent housing in an adequate environment that does not cause "social isolation" or put their safety at risk.

"While there is a single Lorca outside his house, the municipal government of the PP has no reason to boast of management, but to demand their party partners in the Autonomous Community to meet those affected and facilitate them to regain normality in their lives, "Martin concluded.
