Parc de l’Oreneta to be protected as a green areaThe entire site of the Parc del Castell de l’Oreneta is to be reclassified as a green area, meaning flats cannot be built on the 6,239 square metres of land there currently still classified as developable.
The current urban classification means the land at C/ Montevideo 33-53 could be developed. The site is within the Parc del Castell de l’Oreneta, close to the urban fabric of Sarrià.
The amendment to the current plan turns this plot of 6,239 square metres into a green zone, responding to a demand from local residents to prevent the construction of 30 private homes on the site and protect the park as a whole.
The developable part of C/ Montevideo will be transferred to a municipally owned site of 3,539 square meters between C/ Major de Can Caralleu, C/ Gaspar Cassadó and C/ Esports.
The change will enable a maximum of 45 protected flats and a neighbourhood facility to be built on this site.
The measure, initially approved by the Commission for Ecology, Urban Planning and Mobility, will continue making its way through the municipal administrative procedure until its definitive approval by the Sub-commission for Urban Planning in Barcelona.
