Barcelona’s Town Hall Considers Suspending Construction Licences for New Offices in the 22@ District

The Town Hall of Barcelona is considering suspending construction licences for new office projects in the 22@ district. The local government led by Ada Colau is motivated by several factors.

Firstly, it wants to triple the amount of land dedicated to housing, which would allow for the construction of between 5,000 and 6,000 flats, particularly in the 22@ Nord area.

Secondly, it wants to protect the area closest to the Poblenou neighbourhood and so would exclude certain parts of the 22@ district from the new General Metropolitan Plan.

Finally, it wants to make Poblenou Central Park more fluid so that it ceases to act as a barrier between the two portions of 22@.

In this context, requests for urban planning reports and reparcelations have increased, given that such projects would be able to avoid the suspension if it is approved.
