AN industrial estate could be created in Son Garcies Vell, next to the airport, for hire vehicles.
This was announced by the head of Palma council's Town Planning department, Yolanda Garvi.
She said that the Town Planning Management committee had approved proposing to the ruling parties on Palma council that an industrial estate be created to house hire vehicles.

The site they have in mind is 220'388 square metres in size.
Garvi said that once the proposal has been approved by a meeting of the full council, it has to be approved by the Council of Majorca.
The approval of this project has the support of the Transport department, which had already published a favourable report in July last year.
In a second report, it is claimed that the total number of comings and goings generated by this industrial estate would be 8'000 vehicles per day.
On another subject, Garvi responded to a question asked by the Partido Popular councillor Lourdes Bosch in relation to the complaints about the execution of the work in the “El Arenal” establishment.

With regard to this, the head of Town Planning said that a decree issued on January 25, distributed to all parties concerned, ordered the suspension of the work, and the work is still suspended.
