Car parks in Formentor are illegal. | Elena Ballestero

Tomeu Cifre Bennàsar, Pollensa's councillor for urban planning, told Thursday's council meeting that car parks in Formentor do not have business activity or opening licences. They are, therefore, "not adjusted to legality": illegal, in other words.

Despite this, the town hall doesn't intend taking any action this year. The car parks will be able to operate as they have for many summers. Cifre said that the situation is similar to that which existed with car parks in Campos for Es Trenc beach. He was responding to questions from the Alternativa per Pollença, which has long denounced the situation.

Cifre added that the shuttle bus service for Formentor from Puerto Pollensa will be introduced in time for the 2018 season. At the same time, access by private car is to be restricted in Formentor.
