Neighbors and municipal authorities have presented the new Association against the High Voltage Line 400 kV-Lorca Solar PV that was born with the aim of defending the social and patrimonial rights of those affected by the layout of this infrastructure.
The Mayor, Andrés García, and the Town Planning Councilor, Carlos Ballester, have accompanied those affected in this official presentation, held in the municipal plenary hall, which has had the presence of its president, Carmen Moreno, and the legal counsel of the same, Juan Luis Ferri.
The neighbors constitute this association that will work hand in hand with the platform already constituted at the beginning of this legislature and the totanero Consistory itself to work in the legal defense of those affected against the company promoting the project.
The spokeswoman of the association explained that "it is more of an economic project than strategic" and added that "we are going to work so that the layout and the energy evacuation procedure can be changed".
In addition, he encouraged the affected and residents of Totana, Aledo and Lorca -aglutina affected of the three municipalities- to become partners of the same, filling out some forms, at the headquarters of the Department of Urban Planning or the offices of legal services this;
located in the street Pilar, 1 1st and 2nd floor of this town.
Affected neighbors argue that from the legal point of view the declaration of environmental impact suffers from guarantees and has serious procedural problems in due legal protection to those affected.
They also advocate a layout and a "more rational" energy evacuation system;
while advocating the use of renewable energy but "without turning it into a speculative business," they say.
For his part, the councilor of Urbanism reported on the processing of the file, explaining that the company presented the construction project of the High Voltage Line;
which, in the opinion of the technicians, "lacks authorization of public interest".
The mayor said that this is a "basic deficiency", so that "you can not authorize the use of land to transport energy";
and reiterated that "it is a highly questioned project", for which he stressed that "we will continue to demand full compliance with the regulations and defend the rights of citizens."
