Alcântara Development Plan presented 

Around 100 people attended last September 24th the presentation of Alcantara Development Plan, in a session that took place at the Parish's Hall. Participated there the Councillor for Urbanism, Mr Manuel Salgado, architect Eduardo Campelo, Head of Planning and Rehabilitation Department, the Chairman of Alcantara Parish Council, Mr Davide Amado and the Chairman of the Parish Assembly, Mr Rui Silva. 

Mr Manuel Salgado informed that the plan is waiting for approval at the Municipal Assembly and is a "simplified version" of the initial project, as a result of the changes that happened during the last few years. Although it is also expected a wider solution that may allow for the "execution of other works, without preventing the building of several planned equipment. 

Environmental qualification, territorial cohesion and urban regeneration are three of the Plan's program axis, that includes the roadway reorganization, the creation of parking slots and green areas as well as the construction of social equipment, such as kindergarten, centres for elderly people, an health centre and a library, anticipating also the creation of housing areas and the creation of jobs within the Parish's area. It is around 220 square meters of construction and an investment of €23M in urban operations, from an estimated total of €53M. 

After the discussion about the plan, the Councillor added that it is expected the installation of several water retention basins at Alcantara Valley and the construction, by Simtejo, of two outfalls, which will allow to reduce the gully flow and to "end with the plague of flooding" that cyclically affect that area of the city. 

The Councillor committed himself to not take for voting at the Municipal Assembly the Detail Plan of "Pedreira do Alvito" before the Parish could rule on it. 

The Alcântara Urbanization Plan is available at the website of Lisbon's City Council.
