SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, 28 Apr. (EUROPE PRESS) –
The single registry for those affected by the volcanic eruption in La Palma, located in the Casa Massieu in Los Llanos de Aridane, has processed more than 6,000 files since its launch, of which only 5.5% are pending resolution.
This was stated by Sergio Matos, representative of the Office for economic coordination and assistance to those affected by the volcano, who appeared in parliament together with Miguel Ángel Pulido, also a representative of this office.
Sergio Matos stressed that this unique registry is the “newest” application currently in Spain and wanted to remember that until June 25, people affected by the volcano will be able to register in it.
He also stressed that it has been key to the distribution of almost 440 million euros in direct and indirect aid for the provision of psychosocial care, the generation of employment, the purchase of equipment and the performance of works or emergency interventions.
He also indicated that, six months after the launch of the single registry, affected people continue to arrive at Casa Massieu to register for the first time, especially Germans who were not on the island, but also palm trees and palm trees.
ADAPTATION OF PLANNING.
Miguel Ángel Pulido, coordinator in economic matters of infrastructures of the Office of attention to those affected, advocated putting in place the necessary legal measures for economic reactivation, measures that allow the drafting and approval of plans adapted to the new reality to face with the greatest as quickly as possible the process of rehousing the affected neighbors.
Pulido indicated that the situation that occurred after the eruption forces the public powers to adopt administrative and legal measures of an exceptional nature necessary for a reconstruction based on the refoundation of the traditional population centers and on the relocation of the neighbors to safer areas and with lower volcanic risk.
In his opinion, pockets of land should be defined in this new territorial framework that can be classified by decree-law as urbanizable land ordered under public management, which would make it possible to go to the expropriation and direct urbanization of the land, which the Administration must then put into service of those affected who have lost their habitual residence through a preferential right of purchase.
Likewise, he considered that the spatial location of the economic activities of the primary sector must be defined, especially the strip that goes from the southern highway to the coastal coastline of Tazacorte, in order to recover a large part of the hundreds of hectares of buried agricultural and livestock farms. for the lava.
To do this, it is committed to an integrated ecological model, while at the same time determining other areas of economic activity, reserving opportunity land for industrial and tourist activity, as well as for the necessary equipment and provisions, and protecting only those parts of the laundry that have a high scientific or environmental interest.
According to Miguel Ángel Pulido, this means that the surface of the lava mantle must also be considered as a territorial support to accommodate economic activities whose implementation must be based on the territorial and urban planning of the new space duly articulated with its surroundings.
Finally, he considered that the administrations must continue working on improving and streamlining aid to those affected, both fiscally and through direct subsidies, and on immediately promoting a reconstruction and economic reactivation plan that have among its objectives the resolute reconstruction of the palm agribusiness.
