Community Council for Land and Housing Policy

The Community Council for Land and Housing Policy of the city of Quilmes has as its objective the articulation of social demands to the governmental institutions, as well as the monitoring and control of the policies tending to the creation of houses. The Council is coordinated by a Board of Directors, which is composed of representatives of various institutions: social organizations based on land and housing, the Municipal Executive Branch, the Municipal Legislative Branch, the Secretariat of Land and Urbanism of the Province of Buenos Aires, the National University of Quilmas, the Diocese and local civil associations. The Community Council has meetings every fortnight for which civil society organizations that held previous meetings can draw up a plan of action and coordinate their interests.
