Majorca is divided between traditional villages and those who are ‘new build’ in origin. The latter arrived alongside all the hotels and building in the days of boom building for tourism. The interesting feature now is what people in 2021 choose to live in. In the Soller Valley there are few blocks of flats or new build properties. There are plots of land which people own with a right to build on. Sometimes the money and the energy to build on them are taken and a fine new modern house arrives. Those investors who can sit on their land bank are waiting for the rules to change. Then they will build blocks of apartments on their plots again. This whole issue is a local political hot potato.
