Zapata stressed the importance of this instrument ?through which we can learn about real housing needs and adapt housing and land policies by having this updated Municipal Plan.

Zapata stressed that "in this way programs can be carried out to improve housing conditions in urban areas with slums, for their transformation into decent housing and thus providing the social integration of the resident population." »It is also very important that the City Council have this study as they are necessary when applying for aid and subsidies from the Junta de Andalucía that give more marks when these types of plans are available,« added Torreña mayor. .
As reported by the Consistory in a statement, in the coming days the contract for the drafting of this Housing and Land Plan will be put out to tender, which will be based mainly on the historic centers of all the population centers of the municipality of Vélez-Málaga . The execution period for the elaboration of this project is six months.
