No further building licenses will be granted until the parish’s load capacity study is carried out. This is the measure unanimously adopted by all the councillors of the municipality of Escaldes-Engordany.

Escaldes-Engordany temporarily stops granting construction licenses. It has done so since this Tuesday, to avoid the knocking effect that other moratoria have generated. The law allows suspension for a period of one year, but the will is to be able to lift it as soon as possible.

However, in order to do this, it will be necessary to have the studies of load capacity of the parish, which must define what is the maximum possible growth. A tool that will be crucial for the review of the urban planning plan to be carried out this year and that must configure a more balanced and sustainable urbanism.

Ordino also decreed the suspension of licences at the time. The measure will be in the public exhibition phase for two months. In Escaldes-Engordany it has been adopted unanimously.

“Stopping to stop doesn’t make sense. But stop to make a good urbanism in the parish, balanced. That the country continues to have well-being and above all service.”
Rosa Gili, eldest consul of Escaldes-Engordany

“What we ask is to work to be able to prepare the POUP after the load study and not to last over time.”
Anna Garcia, Minister of the Minority of Escaldes-Engordany

On the famous studies, consuls have stated that they are awaiting government reports on aspects such as energy and health for burden analysis.
