PORTUGUESE COMMUNIST PARTY Parliamentary Group draft resolution No. 526/X-4th Recommends to the Government the urgent completion of the classification process of the Easel of the well of St. Vincent and Christian Martinez of San Pedro de Grave and adopt measures for its urgent recovery Preamble the trestle from the well of St Vincent is one of the most significant symbols of São Pedro da Cova and is a landmark of a whole past of mining activities that marked This parish.
The trestle from the well of St. Vincent, despite being in high State of degradation, continues to be a reference to the population that sees in him, not only his indisputable heritage value, but their own past and a part of its history.
With its 25 meters in height and three floors, this imposing structure had to support the extraction of coal from the mine and is accompanied by a complex of buildings that served as support for the extractive activity.
As is well known, its book value and reference is recognized so widely consensual, which cannot be brushed off the decision of the Mines Department of the Faculty of engineering of the University of Porto using the bridge from the well of Saint Vincent of Minas de São Pedro da Cova as identity logo that Department of higher education. Despite being considered by many as a reference to the industrial architecture at national level, the trestle from the well of Saint Vincent, and the complex of buildings that accompanies it, has been left abandoned by successive Governments. In fact, successive Government PS and PSD, with or without the CDS-PP, they degrade the miner heritage of São Pedro da Cova and not even the classification process of the Trestle from the well of St. Vincent is still complete.
Unlike other parties, notably the PS, the PCP fight many years ago for classification and retrieval of the Easel of the well of St. Vincent. In addition to various motions presented by CDU in the parish of São Pedro da Cova and in Municipal Assembly of Gondomar, the PCP questioned both the PSD Government, want the current Government PS.
More 2 it should be noted that the process is triggered with an initiative of the Junta de Freguesia of São Pedro da Cova. In June 2004, in response to my request for legal aid 618/IX (2nd) of the PCP, the Ministry of culture confirmed that an application for classification of bridge of Saint Vincent pit had been triggered following an initiative of the Junta de Freguesia of São Pedro da Cova. As a result, then the Regional port of IPPAR had begun a collection of opinions, including the Department's own Mines of the Faculdade de Engenharia da Universidade do Porto, whose outcome was the drafting of a proposal "for the opening of the statement of the classification process, which managed to gain favourable dispatch May 30, 1996". In other words, the classification process of the Easel of the well of St. Vincent from the ancient mines of São Pedro da Cova was opened in 1996, 13 years ago. More: the answer given in June 2004 by the Ministry of culture, highlighted that "the structure of the Bridge from the well of St. Vincent, the safeguarding of the mining heritage of s. Pedro da Cova encompasses also the well of St. Vincent", located in the proximity of the easel. The response of the Ministry of culture from 2004 said that the classification process was at the time under "technical grounds". However, in the municipal plan was ratified by Council of Ministers resolution 120/2004, the plan of the urbanization of São Pedro da Cova, whose regulation stipulates, in article 62, which "are classified the following buildings, ensembles and free spaces: 1) buildings with architectural interest and asset-trestle coal and pit facilities of St. Vincent of the coal mines of s. Pedro da Cova , including Malta's House-developing process of classification by IPPAR; " ( … ) Still in the municipal plan was however held a contest for the "preparation of the base program, preliminary study and project of the Museum of s. Pedro da Cova. During this parliamentary term, the majority PS, PCP submitted in all budgets of State proposals for classification and retrieval of the Easel of the well of St. Vincent who were all rejected by the PS and PSD. In April of 2008, in response to a question posed by the PCP, the Ministry of culture came to report that "the proposed classification and special protection zone for the Easel of coal and pit facilities of St. Vincent of São Pedro da Cova has been instructed by the peripheral services of the region North of this Ministry and is in the process of discussion with the municipality of Gondomar, predicting its completion soon. Recently, the population of São Pedro da Cova was surprised with the presentation of a draft resolution of the PS do you recommend, to his own Government, the process of sorting the easel of the well of St. Vincent and all the elements of Christian Martinez of São Pedro da Cova and rehabilitation of this structure. However, the recent "wake up" from PS to this question can only earn a vehement criticism for: or the PS is trying to remove political profits, "soon", classification of this important monument trying, indecorosamente, gather to themselves the credit for a classification for which little or nothing done, or so know that this classification is not to short , what responsible solely and exclusively the Government PS.
3 How to rehab, the PCP reiterates, for that does not fall into oblivion, that during this parliamentary term, in all State budgets, funding proposals for the recovery of the Easel of the well of St. Vincent, which were rejected by the PS, the PS today, a few months from local elections, proposing what rejected for four consecutive years. The CFP, without hypocrisy and a coherent, always fought for the classification of this heritage and for their dignity, in particular, by inserting it in a museum project.
Aware of the urgent need of classification of this heritage and its urgent recovery, CFP offers this: draft resolution in accordance with article 156 of the Constitution) and of paragraph b) of paragraph 1 of article 4 of the rules of procedure, the Parliament recommends to the Government that: (a) promote the rapid conclusion of the) process of classification of the Trestle from the well of St. Vincent and all facilities of the well of Saint Vincent and the urgent
recovery of these structures. (b) the inventory of all) promotes the material and immaterial heritage belonging to the Christian Martinez of São Pedro da Cova, with a view to their classification and retrieval. c) take the necessary initiatives to mitigate environmental impacts caused by mining activity.
