Default Free Parking?

Over the last week all of the plinths that the parking ticket machines are fixed to have been removed in Formentor Road. This seems to be permanent as the paving has also been restored. Does this mean that the 'blue zone' parking no longer applies?

Yes here is a Google translation of a report in the UH :-

Quote:
The paid parking in the streets of Port de Pollença (except for the port area) is history. The government team (Junts-UMP) has decided to eliminate this year the municipal ORA area that usually operated between the months of May and October. This was confirmed by the mobility councilor, Miquel Àngel Sureda.

The municipal government team also plans to enable, starting this week and until next October, a free public parking lot in the area of ​​Síller with capacity for 300 vehicles . The site in question (located on the other side of the street in front of the public school Port de Pollença ) is owned by the manager of the Serveis area, a position of trust in the Town Hall.

Sureda confirmed that they have closed an agreement with the property, without the need for a public announcement, because the amount of the rent is less than 6,000 euros for the entire season. The councilor assures that in no case has the owner been taken into account, but that "the public utility has been sought" from the farm.

"We were looking for a farm that was well located (between the roundabout of the seaplanes and the new bus station), that was clean and had a good entrance, near a traffic light or zebra crossing that would allow easy cross the round," says Miquel Àngel Sureda.

The councilman assures that it is a "provisional" solution waiting to assess the needs and its operation once the new bus stop from which the shuttle buses will leave for Formentor starts operating. "In the month of October, it will be assessed how it has been and if it is convenient to continue with this parking," he says.

Sureda explains that "we know that it will not be as much a parking for day-to-day as for specific days such as holidays or market days."
