THE town hall of Orihuela has announced that it is planning to auction a number of plots of land within the municipality in order to raise approximately €12 million, which is set to be spent on various projects.
In a recent press conference, Mayor Emilio Bascuñana said that around 40 new projects, at a cost of €5.5 million, are in the pipeline, and will be paid from the sale of municipal land assets – or in other words, from the sale of plots located on the Orihuela Costa.
The task of finding suitable plots to sell has been given to the councillor for Heritage, Rafael Almagro, with the plots of land due to be auctioned in a matter of just a few weeks.
Last year, the town hall managed to raise a total of €14.3 million after selling five plots of municipal land through auction. Three of the plots are located in Los Almendricos (PAU-26), while the other two are in Sector E-2 El Barranco.
