T he Balearic Housing Institute, a public company under the auspices of the Ministry of Public Works, Housing and Transport, has put out to public tender a contract for the construction of a subsidised housing project, consisting of 23 homes in Capdepera. The estimated budget totals 1'688'870 euros.
The project consists of two blocks, one of 10 homes and the other of 13, on land in calle Gomez Ulla.
The length of time necessary for the completion of the site is calculated at 14 months and bids must be presented by this coming 8 November.
These 23 homes are not the only ones that the Town Council has on the drawing board as there are another four apartments in calle Pizarro in Cala Rajada and 11 in calle Rosas.
K New play facilities
C hildren aged between 10 and 13 in Sa Pobla are now able to use a new play centre, Sa Trobadeta located at the Sports stadium, early Saturday evenings between 5.30-8.30pm. Under the watchful eye of an adult, children will be able to set up their own games and recreational activities.
K Decision awaited
T he Council of Majorca will not make a decision on the possible construction of a golf course and 450 bed hotel on the Son Real finca until it is in possession of a full report on the project which will cover 825'000 square metres of land.
Councillor responsible for Territory legislation, Bartomeu Vicens, would not comment one way or the other on whether Santa Margalida Town Council's application for the programme to go ahead will be approved or not, as the Council of Majorca had still not received official papers.
Meanwhile, the Majorcan Socialist Party (PSM) has added its voice to that of the Spanish Socialist Workers' Party (PSOE) against the project. It's clearly a business speculation scheme said PSM spokesman, Antoni Reus. It can't be said categorically that tourism in Can Picafort is going to benefit from a golf course and hotel built on rural land.
K Morning nursery
MARIA DE LA SALUT
T he Antoni Monjo School in Maria de la Salut has recently set up a morning children's nursery service available to all those registered at the school centre.
The nursery service is free and will be financed at the local town council. It will be open from 7.30am up until the time when classes begin at 9am.
Mayor's deputy, Antoni Mulet explained: By having established this service, we are responding to an appeal made by parents two years ago who asked if an arrangement could be made to leave their children in the care of a responsible adult prior to the beginning of class. In some cases, both parents are having to leave home very early in the morning to get to work.
K Web page enlargement
The Town Council in Inca has presented the new contents of its official web page (www.incaciutat.com) which now includes access to official documentation for local residents. The renewed web site has been made possible thanks to the Computing section of the Council of Majorca.
