Work to start soon on civic centre and wake room
Granadilla council has acquired a plot of land to house the future civic centre.
The building will also house the wake room and will have a large parking area. The project involves an economic investment of 92,838.70 euros.
The Mayor, José Domingo Regalado González and councillor of works, María Concepción Cabrera Venero signed the deed for the official purchase of the land, located in Calle del Pino.
Sr. Regalado said the municipal architect was already drafting the project of this new property, “an urgent need” especially concerning the wake room. Residents of Granadilla de Abona currently have no adequate place to be with their deceased and surviving relatives, having to travel to other rooms located in Charco del Pino and El Médano.
Concepción Cabrera said the plot, with an area of 1,151 square metres, will also have a large parking area of more than 1,000 metres. Clearing of the land can begin shortly and it is hoped construction work will take place during 2018.
