SAN SEBASTIAN DE LA GOMERA, March 27 (EUROPA PRESS) –
The Cabildo de La Gomera and the public company Visocan have opened this Monday the first citizen assistance office in housing matters that opens its doors on the island, a commitment included in the agreements established within the framework of the agreement signed between both parties and that has with the aim of promoting the provision of subsidized housing for rent in the insular area.
The facilities, located on Calle Real in San Sebastián de La Gomera, are open to the public from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Monday through Friday.
The technical team that integrates it will carry out tasks of attention to the public, management and advice, in addition to coordination with the municipalities and with the owners of housing units that can be acquired to make them available, based on the provisions of the agreement, details the Cabildo in a note.
The president of the Cabildo, Casimiro Curbelo, specified that this office is the fourth to be opened on the islands, after those located in Tenerife, Gran Canaria and La Palma.
In this sense, he explained that its commissioning complies with one of the agreements set out in the agreement, but he insisted on giving more agility to the provision of housing.
“I am aware of the work done so far, the coordination established with the municipalities, but we must be more agile so that in the shortest possible time we can respond to the demands and have the first rental units available,” he said.
Curbelo valued the commitment of the island institution to this reality, for which it has provided more than 5.2 million euros to facilitate access to public housing.
In this sense, he specified that during this year the diagnosis has been carried out in the six municipalities to detect available housing units and land for new construction, all in cooperation with the municipalities.
For his part, the managing director of Visocan, Víctor González, assured that this opening reinforces the commitment of the administrations involved, with which they have been working after the signing of the agreement, in the development of the comprehensive housing plan for the island, through the acquisition, rehabilitation and provision of unfinished properties, “which leads to more public housing on the market and, consequently, a drop in rental prices.”
