Members of the Palma commission on street trading.


Palma town hall today announced that it has set up a new commission to monitor and crack down on illegal street trading in the capital. Heading the commission will be the councillor for public safety, Angelica Pastor, the councillor for social welfare, Merce Borras, and the councillor for equality and civil rights, Aligi Molina.

The primary objective of the commission is to get the illegal street traders off the streets and into proper jobs so they can lead a better quality of life while guaranteeing that society and communities all live together in a positive environment.

The commission has the support of numerous associations and public entities. Together, the commission is confident it can crack down on illegal street trading, which damages the city’s image and, in some cases, bothers visitors and residents.
