Freeze on gol courses ruled out as planning chief says it is not necessary

Fairway is now open to new courses, but under strict controls.

The Council of Majorca has cleared the fairway for new golf courses in Majorca, declaring yesterday that there will not be a moratorium on the further development of golf courses, despite a freeze being agreed by the left wing coalition government shortly after they came to power two years ago. While certain regulations and guidelines governing the development of new golf courses will remain in place, the Council of Majorca's planning chief, Rafael de Lacy, has said that there is no longer a need for a freeze on golf courses. De Lacy claims that there no longer appears to be concern amongst the local population about new projects being approved and the potential environmental threat golf courses were thought to have caused. The Council of Majorca recently had its building freeze over-ruled by the Palma high court and appears to have learnt its lesson.
