I believe it is an absolute disgrace that people even bring children to PP they are unruly, noisy and generally annoying as all they seem to what to do is just enjoy themselves. Please don't let my grandson see this as his dad might not take my wife and I with then to PP. haha!

The authority had never definitively stated that the installations had to go

...The Costas Authority has formally notified the town hall the children’s playgrounds and picnic tables on Puerto Pollensa beaches can stay where they are.

... Victory for the playgrounds!

It has been generally reported that the Costas “rectified” their decision. This isn’t the case. The authority had never definitively stated that the installations had to go. It was waiting for a regional environment ministry report before making a decision.

As it is, one suspects that quiet words were had in ears because of all the fuss that has been generated and that the matter has been dropped. The town hall now says that specifications for the playgrounds’ concession this year are being drafted.

Default Brollies

Watching the Webcam for a while now (OK, i'll be honest then, everyday), and am wondering does anyone (Sparky) know when the brollies and sunbeds will start to be deployed.

Also good to see the restaurant to right of webcam with customers in it.

God only knows, we have the usual argument between the council and the Costas when the contract is up for tender .

The process for the beach management concession has finally begun, interested parties have 10 days to put their offers in and the contract will run from 2021 to 2023.

A bit of a poisoned chalice for operators this year I guess.

Sand looks lovely and smooth this morning on the beach. Ready for the poles. Would just love to leave some footprints myself.

A translation of a report in the UH :-

Quote:
The beach of Formentor loses two of its terraces classic : the restaurant and pizzeria. Costas has denied the authorization to occupy the public domain of both facilities, following the criteria of the Ministry of the Environment, which reported against it, as has recently happened with the terraces of the Capellans beach bars in Muro.

Yes, the terrace of the bar of the breakwater will foreseeably provide service, whose request for occupation is not processed by the Consistory. The councilor for Medi Ambient and Turisme de Pollença, Maria Buades, criticizes the "change of criteria" applied by Costas, which has been authorizing the terraces for decades. It also announces that they have submitted a complementary request for occupancy authorization with which they try to recover both spaces, taking advantage of the fact that they are processing authorizations for some businesses that until now were closed.

The three traditional terraces of the bars and the restaurant of Formentor were managed by the hotel itself. This summer, after the purchase of the hotel establishment by the investment fund Emin Capital, businesses also depend on this group, which has refused to comment on the matter.

The facilities that Costas has rejected are a 260-square-meter platform with 26 tables and 104 chairs and a 130-square-meter terrace with 15 tables and 60 chairs.

They wouldn't have as many customers anyway with the road closure

What about the people who arrive by boat from PP? Always busy and look as they spend in the tourist shop.
