Restaurant owners from Santa Catalina and Sa Llonja in Palma, who are facing a cut back in opening hours due to excessive noise levels, yesterday blamed the city council for the problem.

Palma.—Neighbours in the area have long complained about the noise levels at night and the council decided last week the problem needed to be addressed.
As such, opening hours for local restaurants is going  to be reduced, a solution that has left business owners furious.
They argue that street artists and groups of youngsters partying in the street are the reason behind most of the noise, a problem that could be avoided if the council applied “their very own Civic Behaviour Rules”, as they said they would a few months back.
“The rest of the neighbours are scared, but the council should punish those who disturb it not us,” Alfonso Robledo, president of the Majorcan Catering Association said yesterday.
