There are to be curbs on displays like the one at this "stablisment".

A proposal is to be presented to next week's council meeting in Calvia to improve the "aesthetic quality" of various establishments. It is also aimed at stopping or at least minimising displays of alcoholic drinks in the main commercial and tourist areas of the municipality.

The town hall is therefore taking a further step in seeking to eradicate the "excesses of tourism" which have existed over so many years. The proposal will be an amendment to a bylaw of 2006 regarding the external aesthetics of establishments.

In addition to addressing displays of alcoholic drink, the amended bylaw will tackle noise pollution caused by recreational machines. This has in mind machines such as "kicker", "kickboxer" and "arm wrestler". The revised ordinance would ban them from terraces and from bars themselves.

All in the name of appearing to go up market ,but the same problems will still exist after dark.

The Palma Nova shop display in the open I find attractive and ibteresting to browse. It's a colourful addition to the street. I see no evidence of it promoting drunken activity in that area but I do see evidence of tourists and locals buying drink to take home. Attractive and NOT a problem.

Will the aesthetic prostitutes/mugging gangs and lookie-lookie men be affected. I doubt it!!
