Orihuela mayor, Monserrate Guillen, appeared alongside Councillor Bob Houliston, in front of the European Parliament Committee on Petitions on Tuesday to whom he requested that an environmental impact statement be prepared on behalf of the proposed construction work at Cala Mosca
He said that the statement should insist that any work carried out on the site respects the area as a habitat of endemic species of flora and fauna which must not be threatened in any way.
Guillen referred in his testimony to the species ‘jarilla’ or ‘cat head’ and ‘tudorella mauretanica’, that have been protected both at European and at National level.
He also asked that the many other “interesting” species of wildlife and fauna be provided with equal protection with the protection of the coastal strip between Punta Prima and Rambla de Cala Mosca and that it be declared a ‘microreserve flora’.
Guillen asked the commission to continue the proceedings with the environmental impact statement that is now required by urban developer who plans to build about 2,000 homes in this area as “the planned development projects” have not presented any statements regarding the impact the development will have on the local environment.
The Los Verdes MEP, Iñaki Irazabalbeitia Ale, also requested that the Commission asks the Government to send a letter in which they explain that the research process of the European Parliament will continue. The request was accepted by all groups represented in the committee.

Representative of the Compromís group in Orihuela, Mireia Mollà, is demanding that the minister for health, Manuel Llombart, takes urgent action regarding building the outstanding health centre of Rabaloche. Mollà says that the neighbours of the area have been waiting “too long” and faced nothing but “false promises” from the PP government, after the original building was closed in 2003, and was budgeted for in 2011, but removed the next year, which shows “This lack of political will by the Valencian Government translates into more than 25,000 people having to be treated in barracks”, and that there “cannot be any more excuses for the implementation of this health center”, and to say that the PP government will “perhaps begins to build it within a year and a half is an insult to the citizens”.
