The Department of Town Planning of Totana City Council remembers that tomorrow October 23 officially ends the deadline to submit allegations to the modification of the High Voltage Line project passed by Totana and Aledo.
This procedure can be carried out in the municipal offices of the Council itself, located in the House of Contributions, in the mornings;
or in the afternoons at the Sociocultural Center "La Cárcel".
The Department has supported the campaign developed by the platform in order to provide technical and logistical support, so that it has a point of collection of allegations and signatures where the initiative was centralized during the last weeks, which has been guided by technicians municipal and representatives of the citizen platform itself.
The plant planned by X Elio in the Lorca hamlet of Zarcilla de Ramos, which would produce about 400 megawatts, could begin its works next year.
These neighbors, largely from Aledo and Totana, are currently studying legal measures to prosecute their claims.
The High Voltage Line runs through the center of the municipal district of Aledo and areas of cultivation of Totana, and will serve to evacuate the energy produced by the photovoltaic solar plant to be built in the hamlet Lorca.
The line would be built to evacuate the energy from the photovoltaic solar plant in the substation located next to the Industrial Estate "El Saladar" of Totana and that would affect the municipalities of Lorca, Aledo and Totana;
and more concretely to more than 450 parcels of direct way, reason why the platform demands protection.
The project contemplates crossing cropland and the irreparable landscape damage that will cause because it runs through a natural environment between two protected areas LIC (Place of Community Importance) and ZEPA (Special Zone of Protection of Birds), in addition to harming farmers of table grapes, cultivated by 90% of inhabitants of Aledo and also a very high percentage of Totana.
