The plots had been acquired by the municipality and in a first step they have been cleaned to prevent possible fires. It was important to do it before April as the birds start nesting now. Being a forest area various departments had to be asked for permission.
Branches from older pine trees needed cutting as well as shoots of young trees and various vegetation has selectively been eliminated to give trees and scrubs enough space. Towards the building of the secondary school an area has been totally cleared.
The councillor Nieves Rodriguez explained that the plan is to keep creating green zones and leisure areas to offer residents a better quality of life and that it is also understood that those areas need to be maintained to avoid any unnecessary risks.
It is planned to further improve and develop this green zone and create a place where citizens can enjoy leisure activities and relax close to the old town.
