THE councillor for Equality and Civil Rights, Cristina Ferrer, has confirmed that at the end of this year or the beginning of next year there will be work started in each district in Palma “to give a specific and integral response to the problems in each one”.

With regard to this, she said that “we will find the necessary resources so that the districts with the greatest necessities will have the same opportunities as the rest”.

This initiative will be promoted by the Equality and Civil Rights department, and by the department for Social Welfare, directed by the deputy mayor Eberhard Grosske, who will coordinate the activities which will be carried out in each of the districts. “It will be an across the board initiative”, said Ferrer.

At the moment, these two departments are evaluating the data collected during the last two years by various studies made about Palma by the Municipal Immigration Observatory (this was its name under the last Balearic Government, it is now called the Municipal Equality Observatory). The councillor added that they will also take into account the results of the study “Data for an analysis of the districts of Palma”, which was done by the Department for the Integral Rehabilitation of the Districts (Riba) and which was presented last August by the then deputy mayor of the Infrastructures department, Marina Sans, and the then councillor for Social Services, Margalida Ferrando.

Once the data has been evaluated, Palma council will draw up “a map of necessities and resources” of the districts of Palma.
Ferrer also said that the districts which are most in need are those which have grown substantially during the last few years. “There are areas of Palma in which the population has grown more rapidly than the resources planned for them”, she said.
