The government group of Santa Cruz will take to the ordinary plenary session of the City Council tomorrow, Friday, the provisional ordinance that adapts the regime of uses of the current General Planning Plan (PGO), from the year 2005, to certain supervening circumstances, which will facilitate the implantation of surfaces stores of up to 2,500 square meters, as well as city-hotels.
The Town Planning Councilor of the City Council, Carlos Tarife, stated that “this provisional ordinance is processed to solve a series of problems that are generated when applying the regime of uses of the General Planning Plan of the year 2005, which is nothing more than a basic adaptation, and, therefore, limited to the previous plan of the year 1992”.
Tarife explained that thanks to this provisional ordinance “situations such as the basic adaptation of the 2005 PGO, which only allowed the installation of supermarkets with 750 square meters of commercial space, which are very small surfaces, will be able to be fixed, and with this ordinance adapts to the current sectoral regulations on trade, which allows commercial areas of up to 2,500 square meters”.
In this regard, the person in charge of Urban Planning of the Santa Cruz City Council indicated that “by adapting this ordinance to the Canary Islands Trade Law, it will allow more supermarkets to be installed in our city, which, without a doubt, will generate new jobs and greater commercial activity in different areas”.
The popular councilor from Santacrucero reported that, on the other hand, this adaptation has to do with the implementation of city-hotels, and added that “it will facilitate and continue numerous interesting projects and can be added to the important accommodation plan with which we already counts the municipality and be an attraction for large hotel chains”.
