The sale of Cal Macià is stopped because the owner conditions it on authorization of a work

The sale of Casa Vallmanya, which was owned by the family of the first president of the Generalitat de Catalunya restored after the proclamation of the Second Republic, Francesc Macià, is stuck because its owner conditions the operation on the Alcarràs City Council giving him permission work

As 'Segre' has advanced and confirmed by Mayor Gerard Company, it involves the construction of closed fields to prevent rabbits from damaging crops that this owner has in different parts of the area.

Companys has said that to carry out this work, favorable reports are needed from the departments of Territori, Acció Climàtica and the Catalan Water Agency (ACA) and they are still waiting to receive them. "Everything is done," he remarked, the only thing missing is that and he trusts that despite the 12-M elections the purchase can still be made.

The closed field would include some land near the L800 highway and a natural course. This fact raises doubts in the City Council about whether urban planning regulations and flood risk allow it to be authorized.

According to the mayor, as long as the work is not authorized, the owner refuses to sell Cal Macià despite three months ago, the City Council, the Provincial Council of Lleida, and the Generalitat agreed to buy it and rehabilitate it to safeguard the patrimonial legacy of the former president.

The platform Salvem Cal Macià – Casa Vallmanya denounced this Wednesday the inaction of the institutions three months after the announcement of the purchase and warned that the recent rains had further deteriorated the property, which already has part of the roof collapsed.
