EVERY General Urban Development Plan (PGOU) in Denia has been scuppered by the courts since 1971.
Nevertheless, the General Structural Plan (PGE) that substituted the latest and again rejected PGOU of 2012 has every chance of going through before the May elections.
The Denia it envisages will have less traffic and lose the ‘trenet’ line as requested at a series of meetings between the town hall and residents.
Residents were also adamant that the roads into town and above all the planned ring road should blend with their surroundings and be prevented from turning into a motorway.
The trenet railway track was something that most residents wanted to say goodbye to and this wish is also likely to be granted.
Instead of bisecting the outskirts of the town, the line will now stop at the La Pedrera halt, which will be converted into an intermodal transfer station for trains and buses.
The future bus station in Torrecremada, for which the regional government has allocated €290,000 of Plan Confianza funds, will therefore be provisional, said Mayor Ana Kringe. Its site is liable to flooding and another use will be found for it once the intermodal station is built.
As a result of these and other changes, the final PGE will differ from the plan which was displayed earlier, Kringe said. It will be presented again to the public in its definitive form on March 25 and put to the vote in a plenary session on April 15.
