ORIHUELA town hall has sold the Palacio de Justicia court complex in Plaza de Santa Lucia to the Generalitat.
The regional government will pay €4.767 million, less €150,000 which it paid to rent the building in 2018 and 2019 following a 2017 deal with the local government.
The Generalitat will split payment over the next four years, explained Orihuela mayor Emilio Bascuñana.
In 2017 the regional government ceded Orihuela’s former courthouse to the town hall for municipal use. At the same time it undertook to rent the new Palacio de Justicia over the next 10 years with the option to buy, which it has now taken up. The town hall also agreed to provide land to extend the Santa Lucia complex.
With the deal signed and sealed, Bascuñana emphasised the “good disposition and institutional harmony” between both parties.
“It’s important to continue collaborating with the Generalitat to solve Orihuela and the Vega Baja’s other needs that have held us back since last year’s storms,” the mayor declared.
Gabriela Bravo, who heads the Generalitat’s Justice department, also expressed satisfaction now that her department was working with the town hall to locate municipal land for a Palacio de Justicia extension.
