A Palma court yesterday turned down a request for the "provisional" opening of BCM in Magalluf. The club's activity will, for the time being at any rate, not be resumed. The club was closed in April on an order by Calvia town hall, which faces a possible claim for six million euros lost revenue.

Judge Nuria Ramos made reference to the club having been closed because of an issue to do with air-conditioning apparatus, which therefore could affect the health of people going to the club. Damages being caused to Grupo Cursach are "easily reparable", the judge observed.

Lawyers for Grupo Cursach asked if the jobs of more than one hundred people are as "easily reparable" or if there can be easy repair for the financial damage suffered by taxis, shops, bars and restaurants because of the closure. All of these are affected by the lack of activity by one of the island's most recognisable brands.

There are fifteen days during which the court's decision can be appealed.

I would like to know when BCM Planet dance will re-open? I have been to Magaluf 11 times and the best place was BCM. When I was there in 2016 BCM Square was mostly empty which from previous years was most unusual and very sad. The square and BCM were the best places to go and it is such a shame they are not open, without BCM Magaluf has nothing and I would not go again if it wasn't open.Myself and my friends who are all very hard working people and know how to behave appropriately and sensibly are very sad to see BCM shut and would like to know when it will open again so we can book a holiday there. If it is not to open again we will go elsewhere and spend our money somewhere else. Thank you
