An opportunity for Mayor LR to “wring the neck of the disinformation company” which surrounded this construction project. Strongly acquired, in particular by the former occupants of the Nanta pavilion, the municipality has been accused of encouraging the “gentrification” of the district by building luxury apartments “intended for the richest”. “Saint-Cyprien remains Saint-Cyprien. This district has a tradition of great social diversity which should not be undermined”, insisted Jean-Luc Moudenc.
