The Special Plan for the Calle Perojo Project designed by the City Council of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria is intended to protect 20,000 square metres of this part of the city.
This project aims to preserve the historical and architectural heritage of 46 buildings and other historic elements of the area, such as cobblestones that date from the late Nineteenth Century, so that these streets will not be paved.
In addition, the original colour of the facades of the buildings will be maintained.
According to the City Council, some of these buildings of great architectural value have been lost due to a lack of protection. At present, it is reported there are 129 houses of significant cultural interest in this part of the city, and now another 46 will be covered by preservation orders.
This is still a plan and aspiration, as there is still some way to go before achieving success, and there are hopes this could be approved in a plenary session in March or April of next year.
