Local inventory of 214 roads collects oral accounts and details heritage elements

foto 2023v camins patrimoni BThe Office of Heritage of the Consell de Formentera is pleased to report that the inventory phase of the island's first catalogue of roads is complete. The project is spearheaded by CINESI, a transport and mobility consultancy, and, as Raquel Guasch, heritage councillor, explained, "it will document existing local roads and highlight elements such as dry stone walls, drainage systems, water use and cobblestone sections that tell part of featured entries' story as assets of the island's heritage". Currently, the inventory encompasses 214 roads with more than 220 linear kilometres.

After the current phase, a multidisciplinary team made up of engineers, geographers, anthropologists, historians and jurists will document and take inventory of geometric characteristics like widths, road surfaces, state of preservation, as well as walls and other elements. They will document the oral history of roads based on key local accounts and compile documentary and cartographic mention of the same. Lastly, when applicable, they will analyse legal aspects of some roads. Some 15 interviews have already focused on collecting oral accounts. In its final form, the document will be structured into summary sheets bringing together all related information on each road, as well as a detailed plan with georeferenced information and photos.

In the words of Councillor Guasch, the roughly three year project "will leave Formentera with a tool that is essential to grasping our history".

CINESI consultancy benefits from the collaboration of Observatori de la Vida Quotidiana, Francesca Bayre, Sònia Roura and Clavell Canals Consulting.

Applications for cultural heritage grants accepted until 31 July

The Office of Heritage of the Consell de Formentera has opened a line of aid for interventions involving cultural heritage assets, refurbishments of dry stone walls and the burial of power and/or telephone lines on the island. The deadline to apply for the grants is 31 July and the rules can be consulted in the Official Gazette of the Balearic Islands (BOIB) of 13 May and also on www.conselldeformentera.cat.

Raquel Guasch, heritage councillor, encouraged islanders "to take part in these subsidies to support local heritage as a sign of identity".

In total, €250,000 euros will initially be distributed as follows: 35% for interventions involving cultural heritage assets, 50% for refurbishments of dry stone walls and 15% for undergrounding utility cables. However, if funding remains in any of these, it may be transferred to other grant lines, in which case, priority will be given, first, to refurbishing dry stone walls; second, to cultural heritage properties; and third, to burying electrical and telephone lines.

Actions and interventions may involve restoring, conserving, consolidating or refurbishing cultural heritage assets designated as cultural interest sites (BIC) or catalogued elements (BC), as well as those that are included in Formentera's catalogue and inventory of the cultural heritage, provided the actions involve an improvement and enhancement of the property.

Regarding refurbished dry stone walls, the aid is for wall repairs carried out with traditional materials and techniques, as well as those involving replacement of concrete block walls or other unsuitable materials with dry stone walls carried out according to traditional techniques. Buried overhead power lines (medium voltage, transformer stations, low voltage distribution networks and individual branches) and telephone lines are also eligible.

Applications for these grants can be submitted at the Citizen Information Office (OAC; 6, Carrer Ramon Llull) or online through the Virtual Citizen Information Office (OVAC), accessible from the website of the Consell de Formentera.
