Pollensa.—The Partido Popular ruling coalition on Pollensa Council said yesterday that it is putting the finishing touches to the terms of conditions of a parking management contract which is due to go out to public tender shortly.

The system is expected to be largely identical to the parking controls which were operating in the Port a few years ago with one major difference.
Resident privilege
A report drawn up as an initial assessment of reinstating pay parking by the wharf, or “Moll”, in the Port has this time taken into account the fact that there will be specially designated “green” areas which will give priority to residents.

People living close to the “Moll” won't have to pay for use of these allocated slots and visitors who wish to do so, will have to pay, but even more than the tariff fixed for the “blue” parking zone.

However, local Mayor Bartomeu Cifre said yesterday that for the moment, he and his team were concentrating on making sure the management for the “blue” parking zone is up and running by May this year. It won't be until 2013 when the spotlight falls on the “green” spaces.

This postponement of resident parking privilege did not escape criticism. The Majorcan Socialists (PSM) in opposition on Pollensa Council said that putting the parking needs of local people on a back burner for another year was “not acceptable.” “Priority needs to be given to the right of residents to park close to their own homes,” said a PSM, spokesman. “The needs of visitors are crowding out those of local people.” Tourists and businesses in the Port however, are applauding an orderly parking system.
