Emilio Bascuñana, president of the Vega Baja Sostenible Consortium, Manuel Pineda, has come to terms with the statements made by Orihuela’s mayor, Emilio Bascuñana, who has expressed his willingness to collaborate so that the municipality of Orihuela receives one of the transfer facilities that must be put underway in the Vega Baja but at the same time criticized the management of the Consortium and the Generalitat. Pineda sees “positive” that the municipalities are volunteers to host consortium management facilities, and recalled that from the beginning it has been argued that “Orihuela may be one of them because it is one of the possible centers of gravity or mass centers of the Consortium, as recognized by the technical bases, “said the president of the entity.
In any case, the location and installation of the transfer plants “will be the decision of the Consortium, since the urban compatibility of the plots in common undeveloped land depends on the facilities being included in a consortium management project, according to the regulations of environmental quality of the Generalitat Valenciana “.
Pineda has positively valued the initiative of the mayor of Orihuela, but has assured that “if that offer to house a transfer plant had arrived before, we would be in a different situation now, since a few months ago Bascuñana rejected the proposal of the Generalitat “.
The Vega Baja Sostenible Consortium is taking all the steps to start up the transfer plants as well as the mobile ecoparks, thanks to the subsidy from the Generalitat and “the money requested from European funds with which we will add eight more mobile ecoparks” , Pineda said, adding that “we are working to find not only the best solution, but equality between all the municipalities in the region”.
