MEMBERS of Denia’s foreign residents’ associations recently attended a workshop explaining the town’s new General Structural Plan (PGE).
It was led by Denia’s Town Planning councillor, Vicente Chelet, who outlined future development plans. The residents related their own experiences and contributed ideas for new projects.
The site of the new railway and bus station was a principal concern, as was substituting the ‘tenet’ diesel trains for trams inside the town. More green zones, easing traffic inside the town centre and fluid links to the port area were amongst other points raised.
Another PGE workshop was held in Jesus Pobre which has its own council but is administered by Denia Town Hall.
Residents here agreed that the town centre of Jesus Pobre needed to extend as far as its southern limit, setting aside land for public use and reducing the maximum number of new homes to 100. They also suggested vehicle-free paths linking Jesus Pobre with nearby towns and the Montgo national park.
