Default The return of parking meters.

The new mayor has said that blue zones and parking charges are to return next year, according to the Ultima Hora. Parking in PP has been free for the last 2 years but from the start of the tourist season 2012 the meters will be back in operation.

Well a month later than originally planned the pay & display "Blue Zones" will return at the beginning of June, the area covers 40% of roads from La Gola to Boccoris and the minimum fee will be 50c - maximum 2€. The full story is here :- La nueva zona ORA del Port de Pollença entrará en vigor a principios de junio - Diario de Mallorca

Hi Sparky. What about the main car park opposite the Leisure Centre? Are meters being introduced there, or is this staying free?

Sparky, Is there confirmation about the GREEN zone parking for residents (20€ per season) with permits to park and the fact that if tourist cars are parked in the green zones then it will be more expensive than the blue zones. This was brought up at the last council meeting regarding this subject but was not confirmed, it is also mentioned in the article that you have posted.

Default The parking meters have returned

I can confirm that yesterday afternoon, a white van pulled up in C/ Juan XXIII opposite Santander bank and put up a parking meter .

People who have been parking there are paying already ( 50 cents for 20 minutes, 1€ 1 hour, or maximum 2€ for 2 hours ). There is no notice as to when the fees start, but the local police have been paying attention to the cars parked there this afternoon, so do BE CAREFUL. if in doubt, get a ticket !

.........another word of warning regarding parking. A few years ago I parked on carre metge llopes. Was pleased to find a spot as carre llevant where we were staying was choccablock. The next morning I got up and cheerily walked down to get the car..........only to find a fruit and veg stall in its place.

I think it was 90 euros to get the car released from the compound. So word to the wise, don't make the same mistake I did and park in the market area the night before its on,
