- The infrastructure has a budget of 1.2 million euros, of which the Diputación will provide 950,000 and the City Council will assume the rest.
Redován is closer to having an indoor sports pavilion in the B-4 sports area. The mayoress of Redován, Nely Ruiz, presented the project today together with the councillor for Sports, Ramón López and the rest of the municipal government, and announced that the future pavilion will be dedicated to the Military Emergency Unit (UME). The councillor pointed out that “we believe that if there is anyone who has to thank the UME for their work, it is the people of Redován, because our relationship was already close, but it was strengthened, especially after the help they gave us during the hurricane of September 2019”. For this reason, the event was attended by Lieutenant Colonel Olaf Clavería, battalion chief of the BIEM III (Emergency Intervention Battalion) of the UME of Valencia and deployed in the area during those days, together with the colonel of the Marine Infantry and sub-delegate of the Ministry of Defence in the province of Alicante, Juan Bosco Montero, and the lieutenant colonel and head of the Recruitment area, Luis Miguel González.
The sub-delegate of Defence, Juan Bosco, recalled the work carried out by the UME for fifteen years, when it was created, and thanked the town of Redován for dedicating this pavilion to a unit “that has earned its prestige through its day-to-day work”. The representative of the Ministry of Defence in the province recalled that it is the job of this body to raise awareness of the Armed Forces among the population, “what we are, what we do and where we are, because we are at the service of all Spaniards”.
Nely Ruiz recalled that the total budget for the work amounts to 1.2 million euros “of which 950,000 euros, divided into three annual payments, are included in the works plans of the Provincial Council of Alicante, while the rest, around 21.5% of the work, will be paid for by the Town Hall”. The mayoress said that this pavilion “is what is missing from the wide range of outdoor sports facilities that we have in Redován and will allow our teams to have an indoor facility when necessary”. He also assured that the design “is modern, functional, and meets all the conditions that were required”.
The councillor for Town Planning, José Nájar, explained that this work not only involves the construction of a sports hall, “but the project has been carried out taking into account the existing buildings in the sports area, as well as the development of the plot and the improvement of the accesses, providing them with all the necessary accessibility measures. Nájar pointed out that at all times the priority has been “the integration of the pavilion with its surroundings, which will mean a more attractive and improved space than the one that exists at present”. With this, he comments that “there will be a substantial improvement in the whole of the adjacent area which will benefit both those who come to play sport and those who live in or pass through the area”.
The Sports Councillor, Ramón López, said that the pavilion’s built surface area amounts to 2,102.72 square metres within the total sports area of 6,960 square metres. The facilities include two stands with 504 seats, as well as stairs, walking areas, male and female toilets, two changing rooms for athletes with showers and toilets, another two for referees with showers and toilets, storage room and other facilities necessary in a building of this type. “In addition, there is an open-air athletics circuit on the perimeter of the building,” he said. López emphasised the accessibility of the facilities, “because we have carried out works to make other spaces in the municipality more accessible, and this pavilion has been designed from the outset so that everyone, regardless of their mobility, can enjoy it”. The councillor added that the upper strip of the pavilion has been prepared with LED lighting that will be illuminated in a different colour each month to highlight different social causes.
- The amount of the two bids totals 139,238 euros and will be used to adapt these buildings to current needs and regulations.
The councillor for Urban Planning and Contracting of Redován, José Nájar, has reported the start of the tender process for the extension and renovation of the CEIP Sagrados Corazones school in the municipality and the adaptation of the Jaime de Sant Àngel secondary school, as part of the Edificant Plan. Both actions “will solve the problems that these centres have had for a long time, such as the lack of space in the case of the secondary school, and the adaptation of the surroundings to the conditions and regulations of accessibility, in the case of the school”, said the councillor.
With these tenders “a very important step is taken in the implementation of the Edificant Plan in the municipality,” said the councillor for Urban Planning, “which will allow the Town Hall to start the tender for the works during the second quarter of this year. Redován Town Council has a budget of 3.7 million euros for the development of the Plan Edificant in the municipality.
In this way, the Consistory begins the tender for the construction management and coordination of safety, health and other services for the expansion and adaptation of the I.E.S Jaime de Sant Angel de Redován, which “will be based on a memory made by the City Council, and which will include the creation of a classroom of 1,369 square meters for six classes for students of ESO and Bachillerato,” said Nájar. In addition, a smaller classroom and a computer room will also be planned. The total amount of this tender is 59,612 euros, and the deadline for submitting bids is 20 March.
With regard to the Sagrados Corazones school, the tender announced corresponds to the drafting of the project, the project management, and the coordination of safety, health and other services for its extension and adaptation. The actions to be carried out will focus on two very old pavilions in which, as the councillor reported, “an improvement in accessibility will be carried out, with the installation of an external lift and a structure with double staircase and corridors, as well as the adaptation of the toilets for students with reduced mobility”.
Other improvements will include the replacement of blinds and carpentry, the elimination of leaks in the exterior pergola and the repair of areas of the façade, as well as the installation of accessible playground equipment in the courtyard. The works will be completed with the air conditioning of the red pavilion building, “to avoid the high temperatures that occur inside the classrooms during the summer months,” said the councillor. The tender for these works is 79,625 euros, and the deadline for submitting bids is 16 March.
- The plenary endorses the procedure for the drafting of the project for a work valued at 300,000 euros to be carried out jointly with the Provincial Council.
The Plenary of the Redován Town Council, meeting in Extraordinary Session, has given the green light to the credit modification of the municipal budget which allows the government team to have 9,000 euros which will be used to pay for the drafting of the project for the storm water collector in the María Ros neighbourhood. “A procedure that this government team considered very necessary to start developing the project as soon as possible,” said the councillor for Urban Planning, José Nájar, “as this infrastructure will minimise the flooding problems suffered by this area of the municipality, one of the most affected during the DANA of 2019”.
The collector will be installed at the lowest point of the municipality, from where the accumulated water will be evacuated towards the other collector in the town. The project will be based on the assessment report that the Consistory has previously carried out and which estimates the total value of the work at around 300,000 euros. “We have to remember that it is in these streets where the most complicated moments of those days in September 2019 took place, with the rainwater reaching the height of the windows, and where neighbours had to be rescued with tractors and heavy machinery,” recalled the mayoress of Redován, Nely Ruiz.
The project will also include the resurfacing of the area, and once completed, will be submitted to the Provincial Council of Alicante for assessment and implementation. The vice-president and deputy for Water Cycle of the provincial body, Ana Serna, visited the municipality last November and held a meeting with the mayoress on this matter. At that meeting, which was attended by technicians from both institutions, an inspection of the area was carried out to ascertain its current state and the alternatives for action.
The mayor thanked the provincial institution for “the total support it has shown from the outset to provide the municipality with anti-flood infrastructures in the event of torrential rains, which are so common in our area”. Ruiz also indicated that “the intention of this government team is to try to start work on the collector as soon as possible, with the aim of definitively solving this serious problem for the citizens of Redován”.
