Llucmajor.—Yesterday's decision on the part of the local council of Llucmajor whose municipality includes the eastern end of the Playa de Palma, follows hard on the heels of much publicised pessimism on the part of hoteliers and builders associations who say they cannot see the reform programme getting off the ground in the current economic crisis.

The motion was presented at the Llucmajor town council meeting by Majorcan Socialist (PSM) spokesperson Joana Lluïsa Mascaró. She was able to secure the support of the ruling Partido Popular but only after she ceded to a request from Mayor Joan Jaume, demanding that she retract an aggressive letter to the regional Tourism Minister Carlos Delgado, and his counterpart in Central Government, José Manuel Soria, for saying at the most recent Berlin Travel Fair that the Playa de Palma reform programme has been put on ice indefinitely. Mascaró claimed that the move had made a laughing stock of people living and working in Arenal where the Playa de Palma is situated.

The PSM also hadn't liked the fact that Carlos Delgado had swept aside Llucmajor and Palma Council's role in the reform programme and made it known that he would personally “lead” development projects that were introduced through the private sector. The PSM said that Palma City Council had proved “incapable” of negotiating funds from Central Government.
