The provincial president of the Partido Popular, José Císcar, accompanied by the local president and mayor of Torrevieja, Eduardo Dolón, attended a meeting in Torrevieja this week, with Dolón introducing Císcar to the local supporters of the PP for the first time since taking office in 2012. During the meeting, Císcar thanked the members for their support, saying that “these meetings with members and supporters of the PP are very important to carefully pass on the policies that are pursuing both the central government and the Generalitat Valenciana for the economic recovery that will finally reach the family and economies of all citizens, which is ultimately the interest of Partido Popular government”. The PP in Torrevieja has almost 3,000 members, having increased by nearly 1,000 in the past two years, and are considered one of the most important local groups in the province of Alicante, according to Dolón.
Whilst attending lunch at Torrevieja´s Centro de Turismo de Torrevieja, Císcar predicted that reforms to the application for building permission would be imminent, and that construction companies in the region will soon be able to have a legal tool that simplifies and clarifies the processing of development projects. Císcar explained that the new text brings together five different laws relating to construction, with the aim of “selling the signs of economic recovery”.
Another subject discussed was the proposed direct bus from Torrevieja to the High Speed train network, which could be a reality by summer 2014, once the decision had been made as to which station to ferry passengers to. Torrevieja´s Mayor, Eduardo Dolón, had previously said that the launch could happen in a matter of days, but Císcar wanted to show how the future development would benefit both the construction and hospitality sectors, mentioning an unconfirmed budget of 300,000 euro towards the project. It had been hoped that the combined bus and train tickets could be launched at the FITUR tourism event, but this announcement also seemed a little premature.
