The municipal group Gent de Dénia, through its spokesman in the City Council, Mario Vidal, has presented this morning a proposal, to be debated in the next plenary session, related to, 'Consideration of a singular building and its set in the port area planned for the Gent de Mar 'FP center.
Gent de Dénia requests that the special characteristics of the chosen plot and its surroundings be made manifest before the Department of Education, Culture and Sports, for the construction of a 'Singular Building' that improves if possible the image of the port, agreeing on the signing of a specific agreement that contemplates the following: Possible extra costs for the foundation due to the nature of the subsoil, possible extra costs in the design and quality of construction due to the uniqueness of the building and study on the special award by means of a public contest of ideas, with a different treatment within the Pla Edificant.
This proposal comes after the fact that in the last Ordinary Plenary of June 23 it was agreed by majority "to request the Department of Territorial Policy, General Directorate of Ports, Airports and Coasts the start of the file for the transfer of land for the construction of the CIPFP Gent de Mar, as stated in the Memory of the Department of Education, Culture and Sports ".
Gent de Dénia abstained from voting, although in full agreement with the execution of the Gent de Mar center in the city, it was mainly based on the proposed location, in a privileged area of the port of
Denia. "We are very concerned that the most reproduced image of our city could be altered and spoiled, as this area is worthy of spaces and buildings worthy of the environment, so we do not believe that a Professional Training Center to use, in accordance with the The conditions that the Department usually marks, with a façade of exposed brick, surrounded by a green metal fence and a concrete basketball court, is the best proposal for this highly appreciated place ".
As indicated by GD, in the Memory of the Department of Education, Culture and Esports, on the organization of the Centers that teach FP and PE in the Valencian Community, the program appears and "establishes the need to create the CIPFP Gent de Mar in Dénia, with the following families: maritime-fishing, hospitality and tourism and trade and marketing. For maritime-fishing and trade and marketing families, it is proposed that they be taught in the port of Denia. The general needs of the building in the port of Dénia They are set at 4.000 m2, 2.000 m2 destined for workshops and classrooms and 2.000 m2 common spaces, offices and corridors. A need is also established, apart from the 4.000 m2 of construction, of spaces around the building of a maximum 4.000 m2, which it may decrease according to the needs of the port. Second, the proposed location is the following, at the beginning of pier 1, northwest of the port. "
Gent de Dénia affirms that at no time is the different location and the need to build a building worthy of the environment taken into account in this report, that is, a singular building, both due to its landscape characteristics, as well as the subsoil, since a 4000m2 building could have an exorbitant foundation cost, as already happened with the maritime station. "We understand that the project and the award of the works will be processed by the City Council through the Building Plan, but given the very special characteristics of the plot, a singular treatment of the whole should be contemplated, laying the specific bases by mutual agreement, so as not to have surprises ", they have affirmed from the municipal group.
