marbella has enough land ordered in the current urban planning to respond to the demand for housing planned in the municipality in the next five years. This is one of the conclusions of the previous document of the Municipal Housing Plan that the City Council has approved, as reported on Monday by the mayor, Angeles Muñoz, after the Local Government Board. The councilor has advanced that in the next few days the text will be published in the Official Gazette of the Province (Bopma), which will open a public exhibition period so that all the agents involved in the city can make suggestions, including political groups, associations, groups and residents.

Munoz, accompanied by the Councilor for Spatial Planning and Housing, María Francisca Caracuel, has pointed out that taking into account the previous analysis, “the demand for free housing has been estimated at around 3,150 units and the protected one in 700 for the next five years”, and added that in terms of the properties provided for in the planning, they rise to more than 4,500, “thus allowing to assume the demand for housing in the municipality”. Likewise, this plan, which is being prepared by the Consistory, “is a strategic document that although it is not required by the General Plan for Urban Planning (PGOU), which we are also in the process of drafting, it will help us to know the existing needs, also serving as the basis for the main urban text of the city”.

The previous document was “prepared with the purpose of sharing with all the agents of the city a starting point on which to draw up the Municipal Housing and Land Plan, now opening a phase of public exposure in which I encourage you to participate, and which will continue with the drafting and initial approval of the text that emerges from this first diagnostic approach”, indicated Muñoz, who recalled that in the city “we have a Housing Claimant Registry, which currently has around 600 registered, of which 60% are aged between 35 and 50 years and they opt more for the purchase than for the rent”.

On the other hand, but also within the urban area, the mayor has reported the approval of a license for 88 semi-detached houses in the area of ​​Arroyo de la Víbora, with an execution budget of 13 million euros. “We continue with the same trend in this area, which translates into more income for the city and the creation of more jobs,” said the councilor.
