A group of protectionists of the cobblestones of La Plata denounced yesterday the breach of a judicial provision that declares it a historical heritage of the City. As stated in the judicial presentation, the Municipality would be violating a precautionary provision that requires its preservation in the area of Plaza Rocha, 7 and 60.
The group warned that the Municipality began a series of works at the bus stops around the square, and that it even installed a sign announcing the paving of its entire contour. The works are removal of the paving for the placement of concrete.
Faced with this, the lawyer who sponsors the protectionists, José Martocci, made a presentation to denounce that the Commune is violating a judicial provision that prevents intervention on the cobblestone of La Plata because it is considered a historical heritage of the City.
This is a precautionary measure that Judge Ventura Martínez, head of the Court for Administrative Litigation No. 4, issued in November 2021, claiming ordinance 9,008, which declares the protection of the City’s paving stones and “does not admit exceptions”.
However, that precautionary measure was appealed and revoked by the Contentious Chamber, which allowed for the exceptions presented by the local Executive. In October of last year, the group of neighbors brought the case before the Supreme Court of Justice, which admitted its treatment but has not yet issued a decision. Yesterday, Martocci affirmed that the admission of the Buenos Aires Court has a suspensive character on the decision of the Chamber, so the precautionary order issued by the first instance judge remains in full force, until the highest court issues. And he announced that the residents will meet today at 4:00 p.m. in front of the Library, to express their disagreement with the work.
