Urbanism and Sports regret that the opposition has prevented the transfer of land to expand sports areas in Salt de l'Aigua
The councilor for Urbanism, Lourdes Caselles and the councilor for Sports, Arturo Cabrillo, have regretted this morning that opposition groups "sabotaged" in yesterday's plenary some agreements reached previously in the Board of Spokesmen for the simple fact of wanting " obstruct and try to weaken the action of government, "in addition to voting against a land cession provided for by the General Municipal Plan of Management, in Salto del Agua, which would have been able to expand the sports facilities in the area with a skating rink and a multisport track.
The other proposals referred to the Local Police that reached the Plenary with the prior agreement of the Board of Spokesmen and were also rejected by members of the opposition and in them, Consellería was asked to permit the interims of the Local Police to be able to carry weapons and give criteria for the use of self-defense weapons to municipal agents. Caselles stressed that in a Board of Spokesmen "it was explained in detail by the technicians but then in the plenary, incomprehensibly, they asked to remove them from the agenda. All this, she added, despite the fact that it was not a proposal of the Councilor for Citizen Security or the mayor, but was an agreement of the Board of Spokesmen. It is not understood that in the Board of Spokesmen they said that they saw it well and then they asked for their retirement in the Plenum ". The mayor stressed that both issues are only intended to provide more and better means to the Local Police of Benidorm, remembering that both came out finally thanks to the vote of quality of the mayor, Toni Perez.
Another point that prospered thanks to the mayor's vote of quality was the list of extrajudicial invoices, corresponding to 4 invoices; two corresponding to spills of two communities of owners that can not be budgeted because they can not be expected to be produced, and the other two corresponding to two awards in the table of contracting were members of the opposition and whose delay, in the case of Parks and Gardens, was due to the opposition demanded the withdrawal of the first set of conditions that rose to Plenary. "This award," explained Caselles, "was delayed to hold as many meetings as the opposition requested with technicians from all affected areas, and in the end all the changes they proposed that could be technically and legally accepted were estimated." The other invoice approved with the mayor's vote of quality was of the El Tossalet Children's School, which according to the criteria of municipal education technicians, was awarded by matching the start of the concession with the beginning of the school year so as not to alter the phase of adaptation of children with ages of one and two years.
After emphasizing that transparency is "total and absolute in the bidding and contracting processes", Lourdes Caselles, stressed that "the objection of the opposition reached its climax" with the vote against an act of land assignment envisaged in the PGOU of 1990. This is a privately owned sports ground, which the General Plan provides for its free transfer to the City Hall by offsetting its use with surpluses that at that time have in other sectors of the General Plan. A technical report by the municipal architect indicates that in the only sector that still has surplus of use is in the PP 1/1 Armanello, since the rest of sectors of the first quadrennium already have all the surplus of exploitation exhausted. "This was a technical, not a political move, and the City Council is obliged to initiate that land transfer process as soon as the owners request it. It is foreseen in the General Plan of 1990, we are obliged by the Law and regret, "he concluded," that have frustrated the expectations of many people who have been requesting the construction of a skateboard in Benidorm. "
The councilor for Sports, Arturo Cabrillo, summed up this state of opinion by saying that it was "a sad day because he had a great illusion," he said, "that yesterday the process of transferring the plot on which he was going to be located the skateboard; facilities that were to be completed with a multifunctional multipurpose use track ". Cabrillo stressed that the sport of skating is being one of the most demanded by Benidorm residents, regardless of age, and as a sample button stressed that in the municipal school of skating there is no vacancy this year. "We were hoping that the new facility," he said, "would allow us to expand the offer of classes at the sports school of skating and to meet the increase in demand in this sporting specialty." He stressed that these municipal facilities would have provided more safety to its practitioners and offer better conditions for the practice of their d
