Default On the beach 2020.

At the moment some of the beach looks more like a boat park and the rest is covered in debris washed up by "Gloria". There is an awful lot of work to do .

Here is a translation of a report in the UH :-

Quote:
Pollença starts a pollution shock plan after the passing of the 'Gloria' storm

The mayor of Pollença , Tomeu Cifre Ochogavía, informed on Wednesday that the company Adalmo has presented a plan to start decontamination work after the passage of the storm 'Gloria', which left about twenty boats stranded on the beach of Port de Pollença


Cifre ensures that it is not a municipal competition but Costas, so the City Council does not authorize but informs in favor of decontamination work and will not assume its cost. "The owners will pay for it through insurance, if they have them," Cifre said.

"Passivity"

The mayor criticizes the "passivity" of other administrations, Costas, but also the Ministry of Environment to resume normalcy in the area. Thus, warns that the sand that dragged the storm has completely blocked the channel of the Gola and "if Medi Ambient does not act the fish will die."


Smaller boats, which lack registration, have already been labeled as waste and the Town Hall will take them and treat them as such if their owners do not remove them before.
The original report can be seen here :- https://www.ultimahora.es/noticias/p...ca-gloria.html

Default Any news of the beach contract?

Just wondering if anyone knows if the beach contract for 2020 has been awarded yet?

Whilst in PP a week ago the beaches looked like they need an enormous amount of work after the storm to get them ready for the new season - which starts fairly soon!

We noticed the huge amount of work that had been done in Alcudia with the seaweed scraped up into big piles and the sand all levelled ready to be topped up whilst nothing seems to have started in PP.

Yes, the big tractors were out cleaning the beach near the Illa D'Or Hotel yesterday.
A couple of workmen also came along and mended a pot hole in the Pine Walk near Little Italy Restaurant too.

The beach contract was awarded for 4 years so no need to award this year. With reference to the beach there have been piles of seaweed which were removed a week or so ago. We have still had some quite high winds so am sure they are biding their time. There will now be a delayed start to the season because of the virus.

Nice to see the windbreakers removed and the beach tidied up. Maybe we should have a sweepstake for the first day people are allowed to sunbathe on it?
