OPPOSITION parties on Javea council want a bylaw empowering the town hall to decide where new petrol stations are located.
Their proliferation – especially those without attendants – has produced growing complaints inside the town.
The Partido Popular, Ciudadanos por Javea, Compromis and Ciudadanos recently joined forces in requesting an “agile” bylaw ensuring that service stations are situated far from schools, children’s playgrounds and residential areas.
It was vital, the parties maintained, to protect Javea’s vulnerable zones and collectives, including children and the elderly.
The local government, controlled by the PSPV, had already called at the last plenary meeting for changes in existing laws that would give town halls the power to decide on further service stations.
The opposition groups then put forward an amendment, requesting legislation enabling them to speed up the entire process.
It was vital, they said, to be able to count on an option that would allow local governments to regulate installations.
The town hall headed by mayor Jose Chulvi accepted the amendment, which was approved by all parties and called for a solution to a problem affecting all areas and, above all, Javea’s principally shopping zones.
