Puerto’s swimming centre a step closer following evictions
Puerto de la Cruz council has made the land of the old municipal swimming pool available to the Cabildo de Tenerife to house the future Insular Swimming Centre.
This step, necessary for the act of tendering the project, is in turn essential so that the insular institution can finally approve the work contracting file.
The technical staff of the Cabildo met at the old pool with the Mayor, Marco González and the councillor for sustainable city and planning, David Hernández, to check the availability of the land and sign the hand-over.
In the previous visit of the island technicians, carried out last May, the minutes could not be formalised due to the presence of people who had occupied the enclosure for years and spent the night inside the booths.
On this occasion, the result was positive as the town council regained possession of the facilities, peacefully evicting its occupants and bricking up doors and windows.
“We take a fundamental step so that the bidding process can begin in the next few weeks and now we trust that the island institution will be diligent to realise the commitment that we all yearn for in Puerto,” said the Mayor.
Once the availability of the land has been certified, the Insular Government Council must approve the contracting file in order to officially publish the tender notice for the work of the Insular Centre Swimming and companies interested in executing the project can come forward.
David Hernández underlined the importance of the step taken so that the tendering of the works is processed as soon as possible.
