Not exactly a fine view of the bay! I can't imagine it will be any worse with those new structures.
Good point. Faroles has overlooked rows of parked cars for years.

Ports de les Illes Balears, Ports IB, the regional government's ports authority, will not be halting the building of the six booths in Puerto Pollensa that are to be used for the sale of tickets by companies operating in the port area.

The director-general for ports, Xavier Ramis, and the manager of Ports IB, Cristina Barahona, told Pollensa town hall representatives on Wednesday that there will be no suspension of the work and nor will there be any demolition. ...

The town hall has no particular power in this matter ...

Quote:
A court in Inca has sent a demand to Pollensa town hall requiring information "as soon as possible" regarding an order to seal off a terrace on the beach in Puerto Pollensa.

In October last year, the owner of the terrace filed a complaint against Pollensa's mayor, Tomeu Cifre, for having issued the order. ...

This is the same businessperson who last year denounced other businesses to the Costas Authority for occupying the public domain without authorisation in the summer of 2020. He also filed a complaint with the Costas regarding playgrounds and picnic areas on the beach. ...

This looks like it's the nonas decking on the beach (I think the restaurant is still called Nonas). Interesting part of the article is that it says the owner of the decking was the person who tried to have the beach play parks removed.

Am I reading this right?

We discussed this last year....and I was in favour of removing the restaurant's seating on the beach. Happy with everything else currently in situ, but Nona is taking the pee!

The coasts directorate had given the town hall ten days to provide information in its defence.

... Only shortly after the report from Arrels Marines, which the town hall administration had itself commissioned and which had highlighted the destruction of the seabed, here was the town hall digging sand out and depositing it on the Albercuix beach.

...The environment councillor at the town hall, Maria Buades, was asked if there was authorisation for this. No, came the reply. But this had been done in previous years and there hadn’t been any issues.

Two 'red light' radars in Palma

Drivers beware, there’s a new radar in Palma that can detect motorists skipping red lights and automatically issue a fine.

It’s the second red light radar in the city. The first one was installed at the crossroads of Calle Manacor, Manuel Azaña and Adrià Ferrà before the Covid pandemic began and the new one is on the corner of Tomàs Villanueva y Cortès and Isaac Albéniz, in the Son Oliva neighbourhood.

...


Sanctions

Anyone caught skipping a red light will be fined 200 euros, but the penalty will be reduced to 50 euros if the fine is paid swiftly.

But non-payment will result in the fine being tripled to 600 euros and drivers who disagree with the fine can also ask to view the video.

Anyone caught skipping a red light will be fined 200 euros, but the penalty could be the death of those in the car and the innocent victims in the car you hit!

I can't imagine anyone frequenting this forum would jump a red light in Palma.....what would be the reason?

I get the feeling that we're a law abiding bunch!

Default News: UK Driving Licences

The 'i' newspaper reports this morning that British expats in Spain are facing a driving ban after the UK Government failed to reach a post-Brexit deal on licence rules.

A grace period expired without agreement yesterday, meaning that Britons who are resident in Spain can no longer legally drive using their DVLA-issued licences

UK Gov, quote, confirms "From (yesterday), UK licence holders who have been resident in Spain for more than six months and did not exchange their licence during the transition period will no longer be able to drive legally in Spain."

" We have agreed to rapidly accelerate talks" they helpfully continued....

So that's alright then

(The change does not affect holidaymakers)
