The Malaga municipalities of Casares Y Gaucin, and the people of Cadiz Jimena de la Frontera, San Martín del Tesorillo Y Castellar de la Frontera, demand from the Junta de Andalucía a moratorium on the processing of photovoltaic plate park projects, planned in their localities.
The mayors of these five towns, José Carrasco (Casares), Fran Gómez (Jimena), Pedro Godino (Gaucín), Jesús Fernández (SanMartín del Tesorillo) and Adrián Vaca (Castellar), have held a meeting this morning with heads of the Ministry of Development, Infrastructures and Spatial Planning.
At the meeting, which was attended by the deputy councilor, the general director of Urban Planning and the head of the Planning Service, the mayors have demanded that the projects for the installation of photovoltaic plants be halted “until a regional regulation is approved to guarantee the compatibility of the implementation of these renewable energy facilities with a sustainable development of their municipalities ”.
At the meeting it was agreed transfer this initiative to the ministries of the Presidency, Finance and Tourism, whose agreement is “fundamental” to approve this request for a moratorium by the Junta de Andalucía.
Given the large number of projects that are being processed for the installation of photovoltaic plants in these municipalities, their mayors have decided to carry out joint actions and create a council whose objective is “that the installation of renewable energy plants is carried out in a planned and sustainable way, so that it does not have a great impact on the landscape or the environment, or harm the development of economic sectors such as agriculture or tourism ”.
In addition, each of the consistories is working to regulate at the local level the implementation of this type of facilities in their municipalities, although the Government of Spain or the Junta de Andalucía are the competent administrations to process these projects, and those who have the last word.
