The deteriorating condition of the Playa de Palma and its crumbling image has got to stop, according to Majorca Unionist city councillor Ferran Trujillo, who yesterday demanded that the council takes immediate steps to improve the popular tourist resort. On July 27 the council approved a global environmental improvement package for the area, but Trujillo yesterday urged the council to introduce the clean up campaign as soon as possible. The councillor also said that a study is being carried out into the problems facing the Playa de Palma with the aim of drawing up a set of “shock” tactics to improve the situation. Trujillo said yesterday that the city council is still receiving a large number of regular complaints about noise and the general failure by people to comply with the norms and regulations. He said that the Playa de Palma “is a sad caricature” considering that it provides thousands of tourists with an image of Majorca and the island's society albeit incorrect. “The Playa de Palma is a town with no law and the annual problems the resort faces have to be resolved,” the councillor said. Trujillo suggested yesterday that all the local administration should be brought together in order to enforce a unilateral set of opening hours for bars and clubs which can be regulated by inspectors.
