The Ministry of Transport, Mobility and Urban Agenda plans to bring to the Council of Ministers the State Plan for Access to Housing 2022-2025 throughout the next month of October and include in it a set of measures that facilitate the access of the youngest to a home.
This has been confirmed by the minister of the branch, Rachel Sanchez, in an appearance in the Congress of Deputies in which it has also advanced that the Executive will mobilize for this in the coming weeks a volume of 5,520 million euros.
Of that amount, 970 million will be allocated to the residential rehabilitation of 510,000 actions; 1,000 million for the construction of 20,000 homes for social rental, 450 million for tax deductions and 1,100 million in guarantees for the communities of owners.
The Ministry led by Raquel Snchez also plans to approve a Royal Decree that will regulate the aid programs in matters of residential rehabilitation and social housing and a Royal Decree-Law to promote the activity of building rehabilitation and the promotion of rental housing.
Jam in the Housing Law
According to the Housing Law, whose negotiations have been stalled for months, the minister has limited herself to saying that the Government wants to take her to Congress “as soon as possible”.
The PSOE and its government partner, United We Can, have not been able to reach an agreement on several key points in the regulation, although the main stumbling block from the beginning has to do with the limitation of rents. While UP proposes a direct intervention that limits prices and limits the income of the owners, the Socialists try to carry out a system of bonuses and tax deductions with some concessions to their partner in very specific cases.
The disagreement has been on the verge of blowing up the negotiations on several occasions, although with the previous head of the portfolio, former minister Jos Luis Balos, and for now that same disagreement prevents the law from going forward, as both parties promised at the beginning of the legislature.
In terms of transport and infrastructure, it has committed to bringing the Sustainable Mobility and Transport Financing Law to the Council of Ministers before the end of this year, to launch the “Rural Mobility Table” and to initiate a “transparent dialogue with political groups, social agents and the administration on the future and sustainability of the State Road Network”.
