The town councils of La Laguna, Santa Cruz de Tenerife, Tegueste and El Rosario held a meeting this week to analyze the situation of the current facilities of the Valle Colino regional hostel.
After the meeting, the four local councils have agreed to urge the Cabildo of Tenerife to call an urgent meeting, as it is an island competition, to agree on a solution that allows the center’s facilities to be expanded and improved in a new location, according to reports from the Lagoon Town Hall.
Thus, technical and political representatives of the aforementioned four local administrations analyzed during the meeting the different technical reports prepared by the La Laguna City Council on the current location of the shelter, the expansion needs that its managers have transferred and the possibilities that exist for a expansion or a transfer.
Specifically, the documentation provided reveals that the urban situation and the classification of the land where the center is located make its expansion impossible. In this sense, they explained that in order to expand these dependencies, which would entail certain risks due to the land on which it is located, a modification of the planning would have to be resorted to, which could take up to two years of processing. However, everyone present agreed that this is an emergency situation that requires an imminent solution.
In this sense, the four town councils involved are already contacting their different urban planning departments to detect possible plots in their municipalities that meet the established requirements and, in this way, make them available to the Cabildo of Tenerife, so that it can be the island administration. the one that assumes the management of the new center and decides its new location.
Likewise, the reports prepared by the La Laguna City Council point to deficiencies in the facade and interior of the shelter’s infrastructure, which is why it is considered necessary to transfer the shelter’s activity to another suitable facility, with the aim of avoiding any risk of the activity, its professionals and the animals it houses in its premises.
