Pedreguer to replace 35-yearold town plan
Pedreguer has finally launched a new town layout plan to replace the one that has been in force for over 35 years. The plan, or PGOU, is now on display in the town hall for residents and other interested parties to view and appeal or complain if necessary. Among its features are a ban on extra land being used for new businesses and the aim of existing properties being renovated rather than new ones built, to prevent overcrowding and deal with the current brown-site land shortage and limited utilities. Greater green-belt protection and expansion, better walking routes and flood prevention measures, as well as conservation of historical and archaeological sites and traditional architecture, and overall development to cater for existing and forecast future demographic – population size and age – have been taken into account. The current PGOU has been in force since 1983.
