Tenants of 62 new homes in 2nd Sitges HPO ‘social housing’ promotion receive keys

The keys to 62 new homes built as the second promotion of subsidised ‘social housing’ under the Sitges Town Council’s Officially Protected Housing (HPO) scheme, this time in the Bòbila area of the town, have been presented to the new tenants. The handing over of the keys ceremony took place on Saturday during an institutional and festive event.

The 62 flats form the second development of a total of 175 officially protected homes that the local government has planned during its current term.

Back in June, the council held a ceremony to present the keys to the winners of the first 43 homes of social housing under the HPO scheme, located in La Plana area. The latest development of 62 homes is located in the Carrer Felip Font. In total, nearly 500 officially protected homes will be built in La Plana, on land ceded by the area’s developers to the council in 2017.

The flats delivered to the new tenants at the weekend are on a seven-year lease and the approximate monthly rent is between 525 and 764 euros, community expenses not included. The homes have between two and four bedrooms, with parking and storage.

The handing over of keys was led by the local mayor, Aurora Carbonell, accompanied by the councillor for housing, Júlia Vigó; the president of the SALAS Foundation, Manel Rodríguez, and the president of the Family and Social Welfare Foundation, Josep Maria Puig-Puigdomènech.
