POLICIES AND TOOLS FOR A NEW KIND OF RESIDENTIAL FACILITY IN THE PROVINCE OF PORDENONE

Proposal of an innovative instrument coordinated by the Province of Pordenone, able to respond to the housing emergency, reintroducing into the market accomodations that are not in use, with a guarantee fund for the safeguard of the owners, through a memorandum of understanding that defines specified network politics between institutional involved subjects.

The phenomenon of housing emergency in the municipalities of the Province of Pordenone is particulary relevant. The municipalities of Cordenons, Porcia, Pordenone, Roveredo in Piano and San Quirino – the five municipalities of the large conurbation of the provincial chief town, that form the “Ambito Distrettuale Urbano” (Urban Precinct District) – do underline the significative dimension of the phenomenon, characterised between 2001 and 2011 by a growth dynamic more than doubled for the number of families (+13,5%) than the population growth (+6,3%). This growth suggests an additional demand of more than 4.800 accomodations.

To face this housing emergency, without a further consumption of land, it is necessary to boost more flexible and less exensive instruments for the public subject, through systems of incentives and disincentives on the not in use built asset already present on the market, and through a more efficent use of the available funds.

About this point the Province of Pordenone has developed an innovative instruments formed by a guarantee fund that acts following an operative scheme, in which the municipal Administrations directly assumes the contract of location from the private owners interested, and then they sublet (as specified by the law) to tenants selected through specifical competition notices. The guarantee fund protect mutual interests – social interests for the public part, economical interests for the private one – and it acts on the basis of a memorandum of understanding between the Province, the Urban Precinct District 6.5, Municipalities in this context and ATER, according with financial institutions.
