Since 2010, the community of municipalities has been committed to a Massif Central Welcome Policy in order to maintain existing populations and activities while trying to attract new ones. The QRGA territory is implementing a 3-year action plan (2024-2026), structured around three axes to promote its attractiveness and support local development: – axis 1 « bring in » to promote the territory’s attractiveness; – axis 2 « settle in » to develop favorable conditions for the creation of local employment activities; – axis 3 « stay » to consolidate livability criteria for permanent settlement. For this, a financing plan of approximately €164,211 is unanimously approved. Reports on the price and quality of household waste, drinking water, and sanitation services are approved.
