Since 1990, there has been a public right of way in the Ternelles finca in Pollensa to Cala Castell and the Castell del Rei. And ever since, there has been the constant involvement of the courts.

...

The Supreme Court in Madrid finally ruled in favour of access to the coast, but in doing so, it left it up to regional courts to determine the terms. The High Court in the Balearics therefore stepped in and ruled that, as there are two exclusion zones on the finca - Cala Castell and Castell del Rei - it made no sense to maintain public access to the coast. Following this line of argument, Pollensa town hall, which has consistently made the case for it to be allowed to authorise walks, was told that it had to remove public easement from its general urban plan.

..

At Thursday’s council meeting, there was reluctant approval to eliminate the easement from the general urban plan. ..

... Mayor Tomeu Cifre says that the town hall will recover the easement once the ministry finally gets round to the modification of PORN. This will be the hope, but given the decades of argument surrounding Ternelles, who can be certain of this?

There's a joke in there somewhere!

The Council of Mallorca is doing the rounds of tourist municipalities ...

In Puerto Pollensa, the mayor, Tomeu Cifre, showed Council president, Catalina Cladera, and her entourage the work being done on returning the tourist information office to more or less where it used to be. It is an “emblematic area”, the mayor said proudly - by the yacht club roundabout and opposite where the emblematic Gelats Valls ice-cream kiosk once stood.


The party moved on to another area of Puerto Pollensa which might be considered to be “emblematic” - La Gola. ...

What a pity that they should turn up at the same time as residents have been denouncing the filth and debris. ...

The green heart (or lung) of Puerto Pollensa has never been treated as it should be.


But back to tourism reactivation, and the mayor observed that Pollensa wished to be pioneers of this. The first to reactivate, so let’s hope they can sort out some sunloungers and parasols this time, Alcudia’s pioneering in this regard already having been pencilled in for the first of May.

“We have to start looking forward to the season with optimism,“ noted the mayor, “but it doesn’t matter if we start a little later, as the most important thing is safety”. ...


Meanwhile, and now safely back in Pollensa and in the town hall building, there was discussion of the Council of Majorca funding aid to extend the pedestrianised areas of the historic centre....

The new project will be for streets around the Plaça Major. ...

British qualified cruise ship captains are also at threat

Brexit is threatening to sink the British yachting and nautical industries in the Balearics with a hugely damaging impact on the local economy.

British commercial skipper and Royal Yacht Association instructor Martin Whyte, who ran a sailing and sea training school in Alcudia for 15 years, until earlier this year, has been forced to close his yachting businesses in Mallorca because British yachting qualifications, across the board from skippers to stewards, crew and engineers are no longer recognised as a result of Brexit.

...
“As of January 1, The authorities in Mallorca no longer recognise British Marine Qualifications.

“In short and as a starter, any British person with a boat in Balearic waters who holds a UK qualifications to skipper it no longer has a qualification recognised here and may be treated in the same way as someone without a license caught driving a car.

“This is a disaster for all British boat owners and their options are to either get a Spanish qualified skipper, pass their Spanish maritime exams or take their boat and leave, although technically they are no longer permitted to even move it from its berth.

Following our article on new yachting regulations in the Balearics post Brexit, the Royal Yachting Association sent us the following statement:

"In Spain, the skipper of a vessel is required to have evidence of competence, and the Spanish Authorities may wish to inspect it.

"Since 1 January 2021, the UK is a third country and will be treated as such by EU Member States. As a result RYA certificates are no longer accepted for operating a Spanish flagged boat (including bareboat charter) on the basis of the UK being an EU / EEA Member State. In addition, RYA certificates are no longer listed in Annex IX of Spanish Royal Decree 875/2014, This lists foreign flag state certificates which Spain recognises for the operation of Spanish flagged vessels.

"However, RYA certificates should be accepted for a British Citizen operating a UK flagged vessel. Although Spain has not adopted UNECE Resolution 40 concerning recognition of the ICC, the ICC is recommended and valid for British Citizens operating UK flagged vessels."

The Bulletin has learnt that local nautical associations and companies are working with the Spanish authorities to get the ruling changed so that RYA qualifications are accepted.

Maybe the MDB should have waited until all the facts were known .
