Citizens accuse the PSOE Government of having abandoned their plans to improve accessibility in Cartagena (18/08/2018)

- "Cartagena will represent the Region in the V edition of Accessible Tourism Destination 2018," is great news but in addition to ordinances, plans, projects, and motions, we must invest and move on to the facts ", claims Manuel Padín, spokesperson for Cs in Cartagena

Cs Cartagena denounces the slowness and the strong delay with which the local Executive is working on accessibility.

"In July 2016 the Municipal Disability Plan 2016-2019 was presented, whose main consequence was the approval in March 2018 of the regulatory ordinance for universal accessibility in the municipality that entered into force last June, this ordinance imposed the updating of the accessibility plan that is a decade old and unusable, and the creation of the Technical Office of Accessibility (OTA), which is the one that must draw up a concrete investment plan in the municipality to guarantee that the entire Cartagena society has access without barriers to all services ", says Manuel Padín who says that" the accessibility plan has not been updated, nor has the OTA been created; since March, we have lost the drive that made us become the first municipality in the Community in regulate universal accessibility ".

"The prioritized action plan to improve accessibility in public spaces, especially in councils and neighborhoods, should be presented in the Technical Office of Accessibility, is also the place to analyze the feasibility of proposals such as the one that Cs will present in the next ordinary Plenary to install containers adapted for people with disabilities ".

"It is also important and has already taken to Plenary," says Padin, develop training actions and train professionals in the tourism sector to improve their care for people with disabilities in establishments and tourist attractions in the city, and give them tools to that they can self-diagnose the accessibility of the tourist establishments, manage their maintenance and start improvement actions ".

The orange spokesman recalled that Cartagena will represent the Region in the V edition of Accessible Tourism Destination to be developed in October, "is great news, and if we have achieved it is because we were on the right track, but the most important thing is missing, if we really want to be an accessible destination, in addition to ordinances, plans, projects, and motions, we must invest and move on to the facts ".

63% of the disabled in Cartagena, discontented

According to the data collected during the elaboration of the Municipal Plan on Disability, in Cartagena 63% of disabled people have accessibility problems, "so the creation of the OTA that aims to ensure compliance with the ordinance, promote plans of Adaptation, propose initiatives and follow up on their actions, is essential ", explains the orange spokesman.

Manuel Padín recalls that a few days ago, his colleagues from Cs in the Regional Assembly registered an initiative requesting the regional government to take the necessary measures to enforce the Universal Accessibility Law.

"Public institutions have the duty and obligation to ensure that barriers that limit people with disabilities or reduced mobility are eliminated," the orange spokesman concludes.
