The PSOE requests a plan to revitalize the commercial sector of Lorca with direct aid to protect the businesses affected by the works (13/11/2017)

Abellán says that there is a clear responsibility for the critical situation that trade crosses in Lorca, and is no other than a PP "exhausted, without ideas, which expects the trade to recover without doing anything, and relying solely on the good to do and in the daily sacrifice of some merchants who are already at the limit of their possibilities ".

The second deputy spokesman of the PSOE in the City of Lorca, Isidro Abellán has announced that, facing the approval of the municipal budgets of 2018, the Socialists will ask that a battery of aids be included to protect, in the short term, the affected businesses for the chaotic planning of the works.

The PSOE claims this aid within the framework of a necessary Revitalization Plan of the commercial sector that they request to be put into operation, with measures for the medium and long term that solve the structural problem of trade in Lorca.

Abellán assures that whoever visited Lorca two decades ago and returned now "would not believe what is being seen and what is happening with the commerce in this city".

The mayor regrets that after the hard crisis of 2005 and the tragic earthquakes, the tip for trade is being the "lack of common sense" in the planning of the works that have raised the city, and why they are increasingly more the businesses that are forced to close

Abellán says that there is a clear responsibility for the critical situation that trade crosses in Lorca, and is no other than a Popular Party "exhausted, without ideas, which expects the trade to recover without doing anything, and relying solely on the good work and in the daily sacrifice of some merchants who are already at the limit of their possibilities ".

Isidro Abellán has highlighted the initiatives that "with very good will", are undertaking collectives such as the Local Union of Merchants and the different commercial areas, but he assures "it is not enough".

Since the PSOE insist that the City has to support specific measures, with direct aid or tax benefits in the rate of waste collection, fords or space reserves for the duration of the works, as we have claimed on other occasions, a commercial sector who "needs urgent help."

They affirm that the commercial decline is one of the "important open fronts" that the PP has "pending to solve", such as the chaos over the works, the delays in the completion of the Round or the Auditorium, the abandonment of the campus or the daily traffic jams in San Antonio. "

They ensure that the City Council has to make every possible effort, and should launch a "Revitalization Plan" that will recover and strengthen the commerce sector.

"Lorca has to recover that specific historical weight in the commercial sector that our city has always had and it has to be what it once was," he adds.

The socialists ask that Lorca follow the example of the City of Murcia, who will contribute to the maintenance of about 300 businesses affected by the works of the AVE, through direct aids that will be articulated through a game included in their budgets next year.

Abellán assures that it would have been very different for those Lorca merchants who had to close their establishments with the works, if the City Council of Lorca, through the help received from the different administrations by the earthquakes of 2011, would have helped them to pay their rent rents , or their Social Security contributions to be able to maintain their employees, as they will do in Murcia with the works of the AVE.
