Possibility of building on Rustic Land?

The Canary Islands Government will extend to all the islands the possibility of building on rustic land.

Antonio Ortega, president of Icavi, says that "it is the only way to solve the housing issue in the Canary Islands"

The director of the Canary Islands Housing Institute (Icavi), Antonio Ortega, announced on Tuesday that the Government of the Canary Islands intends to extend to all the islands the possibility foreseen for La Palma that homes can be built on rustic land under certain conditions, according to the EFE agency

"It's the only way to solve the housing issue in the Canary Islands. The urban land available to the public administrations is what it is," said Ortega after a meeting with almost seventy construction businessmen in Tenerife.

Ortega, who has received the full support of the Tenerife employers' association for the Government's housing policies, stressed that the decree law that is being prepared for the island of La Palma will allow for the first time "that it can be built even on certain rustic land to solve the problem of housing emergency".

And he has corroborated that it is the will of the executive that this possibility, "in the future, be extended to the rest of the Canary Islands under certain conditions and with certain guarantees".

For the director of Icavi, the main problem for the acquisition of land is its qualification, and that is why he said that the next decree law to regulate land in La Palma is "extremely important and necessary".

"For the first time in the history of this Autonomous Community, it will be allowed to be built even on certain rustic land to solve the problem of housing emergency," he said.

He added that "there are lands that, due to different circumstances, are not consolidated urban and that need the development of different planning instruments, and with this decree law it will be possible to save this situation to be able to carry out the construction of public housing."

The director of Icavi took stock of the actions carried out on the regulatory modifications, the Canary Islands Housing Plan and the state plan for access to housing, as well as the management of the European funds of the Recovery and Resilience Facility and pointed out that in this regard they have "very clear ideas".

He indicated that the European funds for the construction of a thousand new homes and the rehabilitation funds for more than 2,000 homes are all in the contracting phase for their drafting, as well as 85% of the Canary Islands Housing Plan.

"Before the summer, they will all be under construction, both those of the Canary Islands Housing Plan and those of the MMR funds," he said.

The director of Icavi said that the Canary Islands are in a position to build more new homes and has asked the State for more funding, around 20 million euros, which if accepted will allow the Canary Islands Housing Plan to be extended to land that has been ceded by the town councils and councils.

The president of Fepeco, Óscar Izquierdo, praised the housing policy of the Government of the Canary Islands because "more work has been done in six months than in the last six years", and especially stressed that "public-private collaboration" has been launched, which is "where the success lies".

Izquierdo also said that the construction businessmen believe that "what we are being told is going to be done," because "the steps that we have historically always asked for from the business side are being taken."

Fepeco maintains a "total adherence to the policy that is being exercised by the Canary Islands Housing Institute, we believe that it is the right one and we are certain that the homes are going to be built," he insisted.
