The Majorca Hoteliers Federation (FEHM) has presented a proposal for working together with the council in Palma in order to develop the city’s potential as a tourist destination. Backing this up is a document which sets out the current value of the hotel, retail and restaurant sectors to the city’s economy and which also addresses issues such as the reform of Playa de Palma, the declaration of Cala Major as a “mature zone”, the Ses Fontanelles retail centre, the future of the GESA building and the city’s general plan. The federation is keen to be involved in these issues and is especially keen for the there to be speedy progress and legal certainty regarding the Playa de Palma reform and for there to be an appropriate balance in terms of tourist accommodation. As ever, the federation is worried about the rise of private tourist rentals.
Inmaculada de Benito, the federation’s president, says that a meeting at which the document and proposals were presented was “fruitful”.
