The Alicante Provincial Council will invest more than 1.5 million euros in 18 actions that will be carried out in the municipalities of Benasau and Benilloba with aid from the Cerca and Planifica plans. This has been confirmed by the deputy for Infrastructure, Javier Gutiérrez, during the visit made this Thursday to the towns to learn in detail the status of the projects subsidized by the provincial institution.
The head of Infrastructures has remarked that "we are going to contribute to a great transformation of these municipalities with extremely useful works that have been possible thanks to the investment of 6 million euros in L'Alcoià and El Comtat with the Cerca plans, our commitment against the Cooperation Fund of the Generalitat and the true tool against depopulation».
Gutiérrez lamented that with this fund "only 1.6 million would have reached the Alicante municipalities of these regions and that is what is going to happen from next year due to the lack of will of the Botànic negotiator and its lack of sensitivity with the Small municipalities, the big losers.
