The City Council reaches an agreement with the owner to obtain parking spaces and improve the image of the area
Benidorm creates a new free public car park with 200 spaces on a plot of land on Lérida street
The new parking space will be operational before the end of August
Benidorm City Council will tidy up a plot on Lérida street, in the Levante area, to create a public car park with a capacity of around 200 surface spaces that will be free for users. The plot in question covers an area of just over 4,800 square meters.
The land on which the action is going to take place was visited this morning by Mayor Toni Pérez, the councillors of Citizen Participation and Public Space, Ana Pellicer and José Ramón González de Zárate, as part of the 'A pie de calle' campaign, who have Several members of the government team, the vice presidents of the Neighborhood Council, Teresa Garrido and Manuel Sánchez Notario, and residents of the area have been accompanied.
The local government contacted the owner and signed an agreement so that the City Council is authorized to use such plot, located at the junction of Lérida, Murcia and Cuenca streets, as a space for public parking.
The agreement states, Pérez explained, that "the City Council will use these lands for the purpose of creating public parking and that we will prepare and clean the plot to use it for that purpose." In addition, it will be provided with an access ford and maintenance will also be carried out by the Consistory.
The new public car park will be in force, in principle, until October 30, 2024, although "it can be extended for as long as it is deemed necessary if there is a will on the part" said the mayor, who added that "this is a formula similar to the one that was made years ago with the public car park on Las Terrazas lot in the block formed by Europa Avenue, Mediterráneo Avenue and Madrid Avenue”.
The forecast is that the new parking space will be operational before the end of August, once all the vegetation has been removed, the plot cleaned and the corresponding gravel placed.
"With this formula, what we get is parking spaces for residents and tourists while we eliminate the bad image offered by this plot, which had a lot of weeds and dirt as a result of its abandonment" added the mayor.
