New comarca debate[edit]

In the "Report on the revision of Catalonia's territorial organisation model" of 2000, known as the Roca Report, commissioned by the Catalan government, it was recommended that Lluçanès should become a sub-comarca of Osona.[1] However, the people of the region are due to vote on 26 July 2015 on whether they wish to form a new full comarca.[2]

This follows the example of nearby Moianès, which (as recommended by the Roca Report) is to become a new comarca in May 2015.
