Neighbourhood coexistence against the 400 line

It will take place on Saturday 8 July in Los Cerricos.

Neighbourhood opposition to the construction of the 400 kv overhead transmission line with towers more than 80 metres high through virgin territory, such as the Sierra de las Estancias, “is growing every day and will be demonstrated in events such as the coexistence that will take place this Saturday in Los Cerricos”, said the Plataforma Salvemos la Sierra de las Estancias in a press release.

The group is organising a day of coexistence in the village of Los Cerricos “to explain to the neighbours the progress made in the fight against the current route of the 400kv line, a route that will cross and literally kill the countryside in the north of Almeria. At the meeting, a bar will be set up, a paella will be served, there will be musical performances, and a manifesto will be read at 20.30 hours. The town council of Oria is collaborating in this occasion with the infrastructure of the event. Numerous residents of Oria, Chirivel, Taberno, Vélez Rubio, the area of Las Pocicas and El Saliente in Albox, as well as the Cerriqueños themselves, are expected to attend this day of coexistence”.

“For the reading of the manifesto at 20.30 hours, we will have the presence and representation of the municipalities of Oria with its mayor Marcos Reche and institutional representation, councillors and deputy mayors of the municipalities of Oria, Taberno, Chirivel, Albox and Velez Rubio.

The aim of the meeting was to protest against the publication in the B.O.P. of Almeria on 22/11/21/21 of the new law of the B.O.P. of Almeria. de Almería dated 22/11/21 of the Relación de Bienes y derechos afectados Línea aérea de transporte de energía eléctrica a 400 kV doble circuito Baza-Ribina, included as an Annex in the Anuncio de la Dependencia de Industria y Energía de la Subdelegación del Gobierno en Almería; with the intention of making clear to all the bodies involved, our most radical opposition to the construction of the 400 kV line, as this project seriously undermines organic farming, will have a serious environmental impact, and will not only affect the landscape, but will also have negative consequences on protected species of fauna and flora, which have not been taken into account in the Environmental Impact Study; This will only lead to further depopulation, if possible, in the villages in the north of the province, as it will also harm the development of rural tourism, as a means of economic growth in the area.

A year ago, the platform “SALVEMOS LA SIERRA DE LAS ESTANCIAS”, together with the Town Councils of Albox, Oria, Taberno and Vélez Rubio, denounced to the European Commission that the Plan for the Development of the Electricity Transmission Grid 2015-2020, approved by Agreement of the Council of Ministers on 16 October 2015 (BOE no. 254, 23.10. 2015), commonly known as the 2015-2020 Energy Plan, violated Directive 2001/42 on the environmental assessment of plans and programmes, and Directives 2003/4/EC and 2003/35/EC on public access to environmental information and public participation in drawing up plans and programmes, in that, for its approval, it was not subject to the strategic environmental assessment procedure provided for in Law 21/2013, of 9 December, on environmental assessment (hereinafter, Law 21/2013).
