BENISSA Town Hall recently opened a Citizens’ Attention Office (OAC) in the municipality’s coastal zone.

Residents had been asking for an administrative office nearer their homes for approximately five years to improve communications with the town hall, Benissa’s mayor, Arturo Poquet explained.

“It is my responsibility as mayor to provide all services throughout the municipality,” he said. “We would have liked to open this office some months ago but administrative delays are what they are.”


“After working round the clock we can at last say that the town hall is present in the coastal zone.”

The office, equipped with human and material resources specifically aimed at providing support and information for the area’s many foreign residents, is open from Monday to Friday between 9am and 2pm.

A municipal employee will attend to members of the public in English, French and German as well as Spanish and Valenciano, Human Resources councillor Jorge Ivars announced.

She will be dealing with  “routine OAC issues” that include clearing up general enquiries, commencing administrative processes, helping with Padron formalities and providing assistance with telematic online procedures.
