A new square for the community of Tremetousia / Erdemli

UNDP-Partnership for the Future and the European Commission are pleased to announce the completion of the project for the restoration and rehabilitation of the village of Tremetousia / Erdemli.

The works for the upgrading of the main square of the village is one of several projects funded by the EU and implemented by UNDP-PFF in small villages and towns in the northern part of Cyprus, aiming to create new public spaces for community gatherings and social activities.

“The building of a sense of community in these villages largely depends on the possibility to access public spaces. Squares in Cyprus have always been places for social encounters and public events. By this project, we aimed to enhance these spaces and promote their public use for community purposes. Concurrently, we hope that the consolidation and rehabilitation of the village most representative and historic buildings, will contribute to the reinforcement of a common sense of responsibility for the preservation of the tradition and originality of these villages cultural heritage.” – says Tiziana Zennaro, UNDP-PFF.

The project, that cost around 180,000 Euro, also ensured that the new spaces include features which will be attractive to families and children. A playground for children was relocated in a new space far from traffic, and public furniture such as shading elements, benches and bins were provided as an incentive for outdoor activities and social gatherings.

To reinforce the message of traditional pattern preservation, the project entailed also the restoration of the facades of several traditional buildings overlooking the main street of the village. All restoration works were carried out in accordance with the latest EU standards and criteria to facilitate access to persons with disabilities.

Traditional music and dances will mark the completion of the project on Thursday June 23rd from 7 to 9pm in the village main square. Cyprus media is invited to cover the event.
