Car parks that have been controversial from start to finish. In Clichy, these two underground projects under the Gambetta alleys have never really pleased the inhabitants, says . But in 2014, during the previous municipality, a contract was signed for the construction of a new building at Porte Pouchet with 9,500 m² of offices, the first Hampton by Hilton hotel in France and a 220-space car park: the Auboin car park. At the same time, the town hall also wanted to delegate a second car park, the one under the Gambetta alleys, with 370 spaces. But neither of the two car parks will finally see the light of day.
Last April, the LR mayor of the city, Rémi Muzeau, announced the abandonment of the Gambetta car park. A decision which was debated Wednesday, June 22 in the evening during the municipal council. Why was it abandoned? The city indicates that it was linked to the operator of the car park and that the revenue from the Auboin car park was to be used to finance part of the work on the second, in Gambetta. Problem, the Auboin car park “benefited from funding from the National Agency for Urban Renewal (Anru)”, recalled the deputy mayor. After having “inherited the file in 2015”, the construction contract was signed “without being able to give up since the Anru financing had already been paid”, he pleaded.
