PALMA City Council yesterday approved a further 35 projects for urban reform to be funded with Central Government money.
A further 17.7 million euros is to be provided by Madrid for projects which will reportedly create a further 353 jobs. An outstanding scheme is the redevelopment of the market suburb of Santa Catalina, following in the wake of a similar works programme nearing completion in Calle Blanquerna.

The new urban development will run from Calle Fabrica, down Avenida Argentina as far as Calle Conde de Barcelona.

Mindful of complaints from residents and shopkeepers about the upheaval street building works caused last year, Town Planning Councillors Yolanda Garvi and Francisco Donate gave assurances that the nature of the majority of impending improvement works would be on a minor scale and would not cause such inconvenience to the public.
