Javea allotment applications now open


WITH THE implementation of municipal ‘urban orchards’, the City Council of Javea is offering residents the opportunity to harvest their own vegetables, whilst at the same time converting empty land and improving the environmental quality of the municipality.

Applications are now open for the orchard plots located on Calle Jose Espronceda, in Pou de Moro.

The urban gardens are specially designed for retirees or pensioners, residents with disabled relatives and residents who have been unemployed for six months or longer.

Applicants must also have been a resident in Javea for at least two years.

The tenancy period of the urban orchards will be one year initially, with an option for tenants to extend the tenancy for a further year thereafter.

Councillor Doris Courcelles pointed out that, in the case there is greater demand than there are available plots, plots will be raffled.

Anyone interested should submit their application to La Oficina de Atencion al Ciudadano (Avenida Trenc d’Alba) before April 11.
