Madrid.—The controversial project for the development of a giant hotel complex at Es Trenc in Sa Rapita (Campos) was yesterday the fourth most talked of topic on social network “Twitter”.

The debate was prompted by news published in national newspaper El País about the Balearic government's declaration last Friday of the development being in the public interest to create jobs and boost the local economy. There were some contributing to the debate on “Twitter” who said that the project - located on the Son Duri estate at the entrance to Sa Rapita just behind the sailing club - is perfectly legal as it has met all planning and environmental controls. So intense was the commentary on the internet that in Barcelona, Es Trenc became the second most debated topic of the day and the fourth in Madrid. In the Senate, Joan Saura - representing an Independent Catalan Progressive Party - questioned the national government over the integrity of the Balearic Authorities' decision to class the development of an expansive hotel complex in Sa Rapita as being “in the regional interest”. The ruling Partido Popular in Campos led by Mayor Sebastià Sagreras went on air yesterday afternoon to respond to a high level of public interest being shown both for and against the development. Defending the project, Planning Councillor Guillem Ginard said that the project is on land “well away from Es Trenc.”
