There was an increase in housing construction in the town of Javea, following an upward trend since 2011, as confirmed below by the Deputy Mayor of Javea, Oscar Antón, on the 31st January 2015.
YEAR / NUMBER OF REQUESTS FOR MAJOR WORKS/ NUMBER OF NEW HOUSES/ PROPOSED BUDGET
The increase occurs significantly in 2014 to double the number of houses and the budget for the execution of requests for licences for major works. More importantly, nearly all the homes entail major urbanization of the plots with garden, terraces, barbecue and pool. The construction of these houses has not led to the creation of new roads but made use of existing plots, some fully urbanized and others which have the obligation to complete the development works that are presently missing to achieve the required conditions.
All other licences granted, which are reflected in the boost in the 2014 figures relate to additions and alterations to existing houses, usually due to the sale of such housing.
This increase in applications will cause an increase in construction and thus the economy, since construction is one of the major economic engines of our population and also will increase other economies such as maintenance, restoration, etc.
