For Hélène Derrien, “we need more actions than words”. And for Elisabeth Janvier, “we are halfway through our term, and Concarneau is at a standstill on many issues”. For this political return, the elected officials of Concarneau, united and sustainable, have decided to be offensive.

An example ? “At the CCAS board of directors on Tuesday evening, we voted a budget of €7,000 to have a map of social action actors drawn up, following the analysis of social needs, explains Elisabeth Janvier. We are therefore still studying, while the Concarnois are struggling to find housing solutions, to have their children looked after, to meet energy bills”.

The question of the elderly

“We are slowly moving towards a majority of the population who will be over 65 years old, points out Jean-Loup Théry. Nothing is done. However, in Quimper, Rennes, in smaller towns, there are examples, whether on travel, housing, home help, subsistence, loneliness. The chosen one thus invites experimentation, “to move forward, to test”. An example: Elisabeth Janvier regrets that Concarneau has “no home support service for the elderly”.

The question of leisure reception

Last week, CSD sounded the alarm about the shortage of places at the leisure center. “We have families who arrive and who find no place in a leisure center or a crèche for their children”, explains Elisabeth Janvier. “There would be a need for a second crèche on the left bank,” says Fañch Le Doze.

“For leisure reception, the reduction in resources was implemented at the start of André Fidelin’s first term of office, supports Thomas Le Bon. Rather than thinking about new solutions, as the deputy in charge of youth and early childhood Eric Malléjacq suggests, we must hire more people and create a new reception structure on the other side if necessary. . “We built housing estates without anticipating the needs of families,” adds Elisabeth Janvier.

The housing issue

Faced with the housing shortage, “we need a political will that can influence the law of the market and meet the needs of the populations”, underlines Hélène Derrien. The “tense zone” device is a solution, according to her. “It makes it possible to intervene on the question of second homes, to obtain subsidies for the rehabilitation or the pre-emption of empty dwellings”. Which, for the elected, would allow “to use the existing, without having to spread out, including on agricultural areas”.

Another proposal: “The establishment of a one-stop housing counter, to inform and bring all the levers into play: exchanges, shared housing, colocation, guarantees…”. Here again, she denounces “a lack of political will here”.

The question of the energy crisis

“Lack of islands of greenery”, “city still very mineral, artificialized”, “city center saturated by cars this summer, without progress on public transport”… Julie Dupuy points to various factors that have only accentuate the effects of the heat wave in recent months. As for the question of energy sobriety, “we raise it regularly,” she says. Not everything is the responsibility of the City. But to manage is to foresee”. On this theme, “we have been waiting for proposals for years”, notes Julie Dupuy. She lists the diagnosis, the lighting, the renovation of schools and public buildings, such as the Cac or the music school… “The buildings are not equipped to deal with this energy crisis”, according to her.
