This increase in rank, would bring important advantages, such as an increase in human and economic resources for its conservation, protection and dissemination as an ecotourism destination
A few days ago it was approved in the neighboring municipality of Alhama, a motion with the aim of starting a process of participation with the six municipalities that currently make up the Commonwealth of Sierra Espuña (Aledo, Alhama, Librilla, Mula, Pliego y Totana), in order to analyze and propose that the currently Regional Park of Sierra Espuña be classified as a National Park.
"In September 2005, the municipal group of Izquierda Unida presented an initiative to this same plenary session to see the incorporation of our natural jewel into the National Parks network, and today, 13 years later, it has not yet happened. range, would bring important advantages, such as an increase in human and economic resources for its conservation, protection and dissemination as an ecotourism destination. "
Remember from Win Totana.
Sierra Espuña is for the municipality of Totana a unique enclave of nature that must be conserved and respected as our most precious ecological and environmental jewel.
With more than 17,800 hectares, it is a real lung not only for our municipality but also for the entire Region of Murcia.
Declared in 1931 as a Natural Site of National Interest, it was declared in 1979 Natural Park and in 1992 Regional Park.
"We agree that a participation process be initiated in order to know the point of view of the largest number of social agents in the territory, although we believe that this decision should be subject to the general, environmental and ecological interest of our environment and not to the one of particular interests, being able to condition negatively that Sierra Espuña reaches the rank of National Park. "
Therefore, we are going to propose the following to your vote in plenary session;
to urge the General Directorate of Environment of the CCAA to initiate a process of participation of the six municipalities of the Territory of Sierra Espuña (Totana, Alhama, Pliego, Mula, Librilla and Aledo) and their social and economic agents to request the inclusion of Sierra Espuña in the National Parks network in accordance with the provisions of section 2 of article 8 of law 30/2014, which establishes that it is the competent body.
