The urgent meeting to consider the Geordie Shore filming in Magalluf.

08-06-2016

At an urgent meeting yesterday, representatives of government and various business sectors gave their support to the town hall's refusal to allow filming in Calvia of anything that might damage the image of the municipality and especially Magalluf.

This followed the announcement that the town had declined a request from the producers of Geordie Shore, Lime Pictures, to film in Calvia. The meeting, attended by the regional government's tourism director-general, Pilar Carbonell, was significant in also having had representation from the local hoteliers association and from bars and clubs. Specifically, therefore, there was agreement not to permit filming on private property, over which the town hall can have no direct control.

Calvia's mayor, Alfonso Rodríguez, said that the agreement was unanimous and that there is a real commitment which shows that it isn't only public administrations that are taking the fight to anything which might damage Magalluf's image. "It is the resort which is saying no."

Rodríguez added that there was no going back on having put the "brake" on excesses in Magalluf, while Carbonell stressed the importance of the commitment from businesses. "We want a model of transformation, but we can't do it alone."

Having seen the good work being done in Magaluf first hand this week, I can see this would only drag it backwards. What I do not understand is why the fundamental problem with the so called ladies of the night is not being tackled. Having had a nice stroll and drink along the beachfront ,my wife and I then had to run the gauntlet of around 15 of these women along the streets to Palma nova. Disappointed to say the least.

Correct decision, Geordie shore is way too upmarket for Magalluf. The authorities should wait til Shameless or Benefits Street and the like come knocking. That would be a better fit for the British vomithole that is Shagalluf!
