A resurgence in construction in Palma is causing backlogs in the issuing of building permissions and licences. The number of requests for licences, says the town hall's director for urban planning, Joan Riera, has gone up over the past twelve months to some 7,000. This is more than double an average of 3,000 during the years of economic crisis and is higher than in 2007 before the crisis took hold: there were around 6,000 in that year.
