Coalición Canaria (CC) and Partido Popular (PP) advance the recovery of seniors' programs under the philosophy of Ansina and support gas as a transitional energy


The Government agreement approved by Coalición Canaria (CC) and Partido Popular, which will make Rosa Dávila the first female president in the history of the corporation, includes express recognition of the Canary Islands Government to comply with the island and execute and complete all pending road works.

The agreement, collected by Europa Press, indicates that the Cabildo will play an "active role" in shaping the island's road network and will sign a mobility agreement with the municipalities of the island, the transportation subsector, and the University of La Laguna, based on the Sustainable Mobility Plan, which is in the drafting phase.

Furthermore, the agreement aims to promote the use of public transportation, including the possibility of maintaining gratuity in certain services and collectives, and the development of comarcal trains' projects in the North and South.

The agreement also supports promoting job creation with incentives for hiring, creating a social inclusion strategy in line with the 2030 Agenda established by the United Nations, and adapting the island's development to the strong demographic increase, estimated at about 10,000 inhabitants per year.

Regarding seniors, a "Dependence Pact" will be promoted, with a shock plan and more resources through agreements with private centers, and the implementation of a leisure and dynamization program that will be based on the "Ansina" project, eliminated by the current Government group (PSOE-CS).

In terms of youth, CC and PP will link Vocational Training with university degrees and reform the Cabildo de Tenerife's scholarship policy, while creating a large space for sports and cultural infrastructure capable of attracting major events to the island, and giving the "definitive boost" to the Motor Circuit.

Both parties also lay the foundations for a "sustainable island" with the promotion of renewable energies, including association with green hydrogen storage and generation systems, a new waste management model, and the use of gas as transitional fuel against fuel oil.

The agreement also includes creating new performing arts centers, updating the sports infrastructure plan, pushing for major events, and restoring the MEDI (Insular Strategic Development Framework) as an essential planning tool for investment and consensus with municipalities to achieve equitable distribution.

The new Government team advances that it will promote that the management and planning of the Teide National Park respects its environmental integrity and compatible traditional uses, will strengthen the island's tourist brand, and promote the construction of the Puerto de la Cruz Port.

Regarding the primary sector, both CC and PP promote a strategic plan to support the livestock sector, the implementation of an insular plan for Tenerife crops, or the change of model of the Insular Slaughterhouse.

Similarly, due to the lack of "effective policies" in housing due to population growth and job creation in the tourist sector, it is proposed to create an Insular Housing Plan.
