T HE ruling government team on Calvia Town Council, a Partido Popular and Union Majorca coalition, is to ask for the withdrawal of the housing development plans at Son Massot and Ses Planes if the programme fails to secure unanimous support from the rest of the Council.
The uncertainty surrounding the project is given an extra edge by the fact that the final decision of the Council will be tabled only two hours before the Balearic government sets its seal on the regional Territory Plan, a document on which such developments must be listed before building can get licensed. A socialist spokesman said his party will vote against the projects because they are not environmentally sustainable.
THE old school building in Santa Margalida is to have a new auditorium annexed to the current structure which will have capacity for 236 spectators. The main building will retain its present façade.
