Toulon is more active than ever

Considered as stubborn, figures are an invaluable information source. Those recently published by the INSEE (The French national institute for statistics and economic studies) underline the significant increase of the working population and its direct impacts on the number of schoolchildren.

Within a year, Toulon's number of residents went from 166,242 to 167,168, that is near a thousand newcomers. And contrary to what takes place in the other municipalities of the coast, they are mainly working people. A report carried out thanks to two information sources: the statistics of the Chamber of Notaries, which drew up the profile of real estate purchasers, and the Inspection Académique (a sub-regional branch of the Education Ministry) announces the registration of 240 new schoolkids for the next school year in Toulon.

Twelve openings of classes

The arrivals are translated into facts by the opening or the reopening of classes, in this particular case four in nursery schools and eight in elementary schools. It is true on the whole territory of the municipality for all the districts are concerned by this increase in population.
Furthermore the trend has all the chances not to be reversed, considering the number of housings under construction, among which no less than 740 in the future eco district of Brunet, on the site of the former hospital.
