Loan to restore areas around Competa which were destroyed by fire

The Junta de Andalucia has authorised a credit of €349,888 to enable ecological restoration work in public forest areas around Competa and Canillas de Albaida which were damaged by fire.

The two areas suffered damage on June 29th 2014 as a result of a forest fire, with 180 hectares of forest being destroyed in the blaze.

The funding will be from the Budget Contingency Fund for 2014, a resource designed to cover emergencies. The works will be carried out by the Department of Environment and Planning and will include measures to reduce the risk of forest fires.
