Marbella and San Pedro have not received 88 million euros to help unemployed

The PSOE has defended the need for the town of  Marbella for a new city project ” employment as a priority ” and has demanded that they promote equal policies ” not that the rich get richer and the poor get poorer “, and has been assured the secretary general of the socialists in Malaga, Miguel Angel Heredia who visited the Marbella area on Monday, along with the leader of the PSOE in the town  José Bernal.

In this regard he recalled that the Socialists have asked the National Government for an employment plan for Andalusia, ” but we were told no. ”

To create employment requires that plan, because we have more than 15,200 unemployed and more than 17,500 job seekers, he noted , ” The mayor – Angeles Muñoz – has not had the courage to demand it from her own party colleagues. ”

We are demanding an employment plan worth 200 million euros, which would account for four million euros for Marbella, but it has not been accepted as they have made in other communities such as Extremadura and the Canary Islands. Heredia said that 20 percent of  Marbella families have all their members unemployed and the PPs´ measures ” have only brought more unemployment, higher taxes , fewer rights and more inequality.” Measures such as labour reform have resulted in instability and temporary unskilled jobs. Of the 5,308 contracts that were given in Marbella in October, only 480 (9%) were indefinite, ” he expressed and has criticized the city government for raising taxes.

” The middle classes are being hit hard “, while management has defended the Government of Andalusia, in particular the plan against social exclusion has allocated 623,000 euros to starting employment in Marbella and San Pedro de Alcantara, of which must be added 90,507 euros to help consolidate. Meanwhile Bernal said Heredia ‘s visit to the neighbourhood of Divina Pastora was intended ” to communicate to the neighbours who have another two years of the present Spanish government to add to our municipality abuse. He explained that in 2014 Andalusia will receive 1.220 million less, implying that Marbella and San Pedro cease to receive 22 million euros that could have been spent on infrastructure or ordinary spending. “In the three budgets since ​​Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy took over there has been 5,000 million less for the autonomous regions, which means that Marbella and San Pedro have not received 88 million euros ” added Bernal.

In this sense, the leader of the socialists in Marbella has stressed that ” in our city, the board is fulfilling its obligations and has launched a plan exclusion worth over 700,000 euros “, adding that on the contrary municipal budgets reflect ” a decline in state transfers of 600,000 euros when the board, despite the cuts transfers remains the same for 2014, namely more than five million. ” the State Budget is not providing any financing for Marbella and San Pedro, and also the Marbella PP refuses to ask Rajoy to come and meet our city and to return the money that the Treasury will enter through fines imposed for corruption in the form of plans employment and investments, ” he concluded.

San Pedro tunnel is OPEN!

Finally open!
Finally open!

So, it actually happened! Maybe not exactly as planned but it happened.

The new tunnel section of the A7 running under San Pedro de Alcantara is open to the public.

Although a little bit late, Minister of Public Works and Transport Ana María Pastor Julián appeared with Marbella Mayoress Ángeles Muñoz to officially open the tunnel. This morning there was a steady stream of motorists shaving 10 minutes of their journey time!

A small group of protesters turned out to demand a cycle lane either through the tunnel or above ground through the town following the tragic death of a cyclist on the A7 a few weeks ago. There was no trouble due to a rather over-the-top police presence.

Hopefully many of the businesses that have struggled since construction began can start to claw back the clientèle they lost due to lack of access. Many business owners I spoke to in Guadalmina and San Pedro said they lost up to half of their business when the road through San Pedro was closed. Many of the businesses along the main road closed their doors for good – of course some will say the economic crisis was the cause, others will argue that the road closure essentially blocked access to their business.

Queues for IBI reduction

A few months ago the local authority announced that it would subsidise between 1.5 and 10 percent of the Impuesto de Bienes Inmuebles (IBI) to relieve the effects of an increase resulting from the central governments revision of the cadastral values. These values, used to calculate the IBI had not been updated for more than 20 years.

Last week, despite having two months to apply for the subsidy it seemed that most of Marbella decided to turn up at the town hall on the same day.

Queues snaked around the office as people waited to apply for a discount on this years IBI bill.

“I’ve no idea when the deadline is but this morning I heard the town hall was going to subsidise the IBI bill and I came straight here”, said one property owner.

Under the new urban development plan (PGOU) a house valued under 100,000 will be eligible for a discount of 10%. A property valued over 300,000 would receive a smaller reduction of 1.5%. The only requirement for home owners to receive the subsidy is that they must be registered on the local population register (padrñon) which the town hall hopes will encourage more people to register. This will mean the town will be entitled to more funding from central government.

Municipal workers were surprised to see so many people arriving in the town hall. “People have found out by word of mouth and that is why the majority don’t know they have two months to apply”, said one member of staff.

Residents have until March 31st to apply for the subsidy and can apply at offices in Marbella or San Pedro, which are open in the morning and the afternoon.

No money for San Pedro beach

The renovation of the beach at San Pedro de Alcantara has been postponed, probably indefinitely.

This is most likely due to a lack of resources. Marbella’s Councillor for the Environment, Antonio Espada, claims that the State authorities made the decision to suspended the renovation works, which included the area around San Pedro due to a lack of funds within the region.

The government had previously pledged an investment of 400,000€ to renovate areas of the coast line around the Marbella municipality and work had already begun in the town centre. It now seems uncertain as to when the beaches will be improved, if at all.
