Huércal-Overa’s €500,000 investment boost


THE municipality of Huércal-Overa will receive more than €500,000 of investment thanks to the Agricultural Employment Promotion Plan managed by the Provincial Council of Almeria.

The mayor, Domingo Fernández, and the special deputy for the PFEA, Guillermo Casquet, have visited the locations where they will carry out the developments.

The money has been earmarked to develop new companies at a municipal installation that was built more than a decade ago to house workshop schools which did not come to fruition. Expenditure will be applied to develop new lighting, paving and sanitation.

The municipality is also going to benefit from the planting a new conservation scheme and the cleaning and maintenance of public green spaces across a total of 54 points for almost 45,000 euros.

The deputy of the PFEA has highlighted the importance of the PFEA, which, with projects such as the business hub, will generate employment beyond the works: “This action is a success because it pursues jobs and stable self-employment. The PFEA is a lung for the municipalities and in the case of Huércal-Overa will not only generate hundreds of jobs but also will allow improvements in the municipality worth almost half a million euros.”
