New Plans For Urban Adaptation In Motril Port

New plans for urban adaptation in Motril port

Motril, Spain (PortSEurope) May 4, 2021 – Marifrán Carazo, Minister of Development, Infrastructure and Land Management, together with the mayor of Motril, Luisa García Chamorro, and the president of the Port Authority of Motril, José García Fuentes, have detailed the process to adapt the urban planning instrument to meet the new needs that will allow the works on the industrial and logistical land to be
put out to tender, which will boost the economy and employment in Motril and Costa Tropical. The Partial Plan innovation was adopted unanimously in an assembly by those who make up the Compensation Board, led by the Andalusian Housing and Rehabilitation Agency (AVRA) as the majority owner with 50.7%, and in which the Port Authority, the City Council and the private owners of plots are also integrated in the PUE 1. The Junta de Andalucía, through AVRA, owns 293,968 square meters of industrial land acquired between 2000 and 2003, for a price of €4,988,029. The total area of ​​PUE 1 reaches 543,752 m², of which individuals own 180,960 m² and the Port Authority – 46,914 m². The innovation of the Partial Plan aims to adapt the connections to the new access route to the port, since the initial design became obsolete when the route of the access highway to the port was modified. In addition, PUE 1 will be adapted to new market needs, concentrating buildable areas in larger plots in line with industrial and logistics demand, making the action more economically viable by optimizing infrastructures and reviewing the costs of the same without diminishing its functionality. The counselor thanked the parties for their willingness in the process promoted by AVRA. Marifrán Carazo asked those who have to intervene from now, the maximum collaboration and speed to achieve the objective that in a year and a half it will be possible to tender the works. The process to get to that point goes through the drafting of the partial plan innovation document, its initial approval by the municipal plenary session, public information, the issuance of an environmental report and urban planning report by the Junta de Andalucía and the final approval. It is estimated that this process can be completed in approximately one year. Source: Autoridad Portuaria de Motril (APM – Port Authority of Motril) Copyright (C) PortSEurope.
