Pe­dreguer to re­place 35-yearold town plan

Costa Blanca News (North Edition) - - NEWS -

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.
