The Gelats Valls ice-cream stall has been its current location for more than 50 years.

18-04-2016Efe

Pollensa town hall has taken possession of the Gelats Valls ice-cream kiosk in Puerto Pollensa, which closed at the end of October. It has been inspected by town hall representatives and the police, and the process now starts to remove the kiosk.

Having been in its current location for more than fifty years, the kiosk was forced to close because it no longer has the requisite permission. An eviction order by the town hall was delayed for several months, which could have meant legal proceedings against the mayor, Miquel Ángel March. The order was eventually served in September.

There is some surprise that the kiosk is to be dismantled, as it had been understood there was to be a tender for it in the current location.

Its a shame, I agree. This "kiosk" has been important for many people. I have a daughter, who visits for icecream everyday (for around 3-4 weeks every year) she stays in Pollensa area, every day. Shame on the people who is doing this.

Not exactly correct for Mr Withall to accuse someone, presumably the mayor, of corruption without backing up his words with facts. Can he ? Will he ?

Shame on you. A lot of people don't make '50 years'.

But this business did.

So 50 years of success & making 'thousands' of people every year happy with ice cream and it must be shut down. Greed or who paid who off?

Why don't you look a bit deeper into crimes that still occur in the port and in the town, your own doorstep? Put your focus on that.

It is not an eye sore. It has been a delight. Valls - You will be missed. Thank you for our family memories.

Aren't there more important issues going on than ice cream?

The tender was just a smoke-screen to hide the real intention !!!!

About time too. It's an eyesore and a blot on the landscape.
