According to Inma Benito, the president of the Majorca Hoteliers Federation, town hall administrative obstacles have impeded off-season investment of 113 million euros in hotel redevelopment. The town halls, she says, have applied a "restrictive dynamic" when it comes to the granting of licences. This has prevented many businesses from carrying out renovation projects. "The delays are by as much as eighteen months, and this is creating a great deal of legal insecurity."
