Nothing is going right at 48-50, allées Jean Jaurès, a Toulouse building from the sixties that needs to be cleaned up. To obtain financial assistance from the City, the co-owners must remove the double joinery that they have installed at their expense, at the request of the ABF
Definitely, the renovation operation of the Jean Jaurès alleys, in progress in Toulouse, agitates the owners of the great Toulouse avenue a lot. After the protest of residents saying they were “forced to cover the pink brick of their facade with white” (La Dépêche of December 16), it was other residents who complained of having to remove the double joinery they had installed. at their expense, on the facade of their building.
“Democratic absurdity”, protesting owners
It is a “case of technocratic absurdity”, protested Anne, one of the co-owners of the building at 48 and 50, allées Jean Jaurès, on the ramblas. “ten apartments in the past have been better protected thermally and acoustically by adding sliding glass in front of the original windows. resident,“to follow the diktats of the architect of the buildings of France (ABF), who wants, one does not know why, to find the building of origin, which does not have anything remarkable, which is even rather posed, the city of Toulouse will impose the removal of these double glazings, thanks to the facelift. On the other hand, the pipes which rise on the side of the building are very posed, and the beacons do not help anything..” continues the co-owner, “but there, the city does not require anything… At a time when priority must be given to energy savings and quality of life, when poorly insulated apartments are going to be penalized, the City is going in the opposite direction, for a perfectly arbitrary aesthetic reason”.
“Windows installed without permission”, according to Claire Nison
The owners concerned plan to create a defense association, just like the inhabitants protesting against the colors imposed during the facelift, “after having exchanged letters in vain with the elected official and the town planning services”. But on the side of the municipality, Claire Nison, elected in charge of the facelifts, specifies: “there has been no request for facelift to date for this building. Only eight lots out of 50 comprising the overwindows which have period without authorisation. Today we have much more efficient and less expensive double glazing systems. The City, which can grant a subsidy of 20% for the renovation and 40% for the project management, is subject to the decisions of the ABF. It would be a pity if the owners abandoned these subsidies. The deadline is five years. There is aid from the Anah for energy savings”.
