The Municipal Housing Observatory was born with the task set. Yesterday he Full gave the green light to its creation, while an institutional motion was approved for this same body to study the implementation of measures that help the youngest to access the rental market.
The Observatory was born as a collegiate body with monitoring, advice and coordination functions regarding the evolution of the sector in the municipality. In the specific case of the motion presented by United We Can and that received the support of the entire Plenary, the Municipal Housing Observatory is entrusted with carrying out a study to determine action proposals that facilitate access to housing for young people to its implementation by the City Council of Santa Cruz.
The aid that is materialized must be complementary to the already existing ones developed by other public administrations and within the municipal sphere, which may range from guarantees or direct aid to owners and/or tenants or fiscal incentive measures. These measures must be implemented during 2023 with the modifications of fiscal or budgetary ordinances that proceed in their case.
The mayor of Housing, Juan José Martínez, defended that new aid will be studied and offered the Observatory to the Government of the Canary Islands to manage the rental aidwhich, he said, are stuck in the Housing Council.
