The City Council of Arico has shown this Thursday its total rejection of the decision of the Government of the Canary Islands to authorize the La Morra wind farm despite having a ruling against it by the Superior Court of Justice of the Canary Islandswhich estimated an appeal filed for this purpose by the municipal corporation.
The same court decided to roll back the file to build this complex at the time the regional Executive authorized it, for not having completed the process of consulting the consistory, the Arico City Council indicated in a note on Thursday.
The Council’s appeal was motivated by the unanimous agreement of the plenary session on July 13, 2013 to “maintain opposition to the installation of any type of wind or photovoltaic infrastructure in the territorial area of the coast, between the motorway, the sea and the ravines of Las Eras and El Río”.
The mayor of Arico, Sebastián Martín, considers the decision of the regional Executive as “a new outrage, another plague of the institutions governed by the PSOE that hangs over the municipality, now specifically the population centers of Las Listadas, La Jackfruit and Garden of the Atlantic”.
Martín indicates that “all the political parties defended in a municipal plenary session that a wind farm not be built under the motorway and in compliance with that agreement “we have defended the interests of the municipality, which must be respected by the Tenerife Island Council and the Government of Canary Islands”.
Sebastián Martín adds that “not only do they legalize a park with a ruling contrary to the TSJC, but also try to order a vote in favor of the subsidiary regulations that can be made in the municipality, a constitutional nonsense.”
The mayor points out that the council will “firmly” defend the rights of the municipality in the face of decisions that he considers “a lack of loyalty and respect on the part of the institutions governed by the PSOE.”
