The City Council has requested an extension of the deadline for requesting aid for the rehabilitation and regeneration of homes in consolidated urban spaces in Arroyo de la Miel. This was announced today by the mayor, Víctor Navas, who explained that this request is motivated “after owners and administrators of various communities communicated the difficulties that the neighbors are encountering to complete the documentation of the requests on time, due to its complexity and the lack of experience in calls of these characteristics”.
The Consistory considers it necessary to extend the deadline for receiving applications from May 2, the date on which it originally ended, until June 17, 2022.
“The implementation of this state plan for the rehabilitation of housing in consolidated urban spaces will allow us to redouble efforts to provide urban normality, eliminate illegal housing and thus avoid aspects such as substandard housing, which we have prohibited in Benalmádena through our PGOU, both in Carranque and in other areas of Arroyo de la Miel such as Bajondillo”, highlighted the mayor.
These aids are part of the State Housing Plan, for which 255 million euros have arrived in Andalusia, of which 12 Andalusian town halls have been closed, including Benalmádena, calls for aid for rehabilitation.
In this way, Benalmádena would receive 2.7 million euros, “which will be used to start housing rehabilitation works, façade repairs, insulation and air conditioning work, removal of asbestos roofs and modernization of homes to adapt them to new criteria technical, such as accessibility.
Navas has encouraged “citizens, homeowners in the areas included in this call, to request these funds to rehabilitate their homes and some of the most emblematic neighborhoods of Arroyo de la Miel: at the end of last week has opened a period of three months to present the projects, which can be done through communities of owners or each neighbor individually.
The call for grants for urban regeneration and renewal in various areas of Arroyo de la Miel will add a total of 2,738,000 euros, “and Benalmádena is one of the only three municipalities in the province of Malaga that has managed to access this line of aid”, has been valued by the Councilor for Urban Planning, María Isabel Ruiz.
“Of those 2,738,000 euros, 1,359,000 euros come from the Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda, 575,000 euros from the Andalusian Government, 405,000 euros from the Benalmádena City Council, and the remaining 360,000 are contributed by the individuals themselves”, Ruiz explained, detailing that the urban areas included in this call are “Carranque, Bajondillo, Bonanza, Alegranza and Zodiaco”, and has estimated 350 homesthat may benefit from this line of aid
