“Buy empty homes to solve housing crisis”
Fuerteventura is calling on the Government of the Canary Islands to help solve a housing crisis on the island by purchasing empty homes.
The Cabildo says they should be used for social rent as housing is one of the main concerns of residents.
The plea is being led by the president of the Cabildo, Marcial Morales and housing councillor, Rosa Delia Rodriguez.
Sr. Morales has told Canary housing chief, Cristina Valido that there are frequent incidents of people losing out on work offers because they cannot find somewhere to live or to afford what might be available. This is, in most cases, job offers in the hospitality and tourism sector in Fuerteventura.
