Fuming at sunbed ban on two Mallorcan beaches

BED BAN: Decision will affect hundreds of jobs in the summer

MORE than 100 people furious at a High Court decision to suspend bar, sunbed and parasol licences on two beaches took to the streets.

They gathered outside CamposTown Hall saying the decision could affect 200 jobs this summer.

Following the Euro Weekly News story (issue 1444) that the Mayor of Campos was being fined for not demolishing the illegal apartments at Son Covetes another blow has been handed down by the High Court.

A judge has decided that the licences to trade on ses Covetes and es Trenc beaches should be withheld until the illegal buildings have been demolished.

The logic used was that the bars, sunbeds and parasols could impede the work necessary to demolish the apartments and could put people in danger.

It has also been announced that the President of the Balearic Islands Jose Ramon Bauza has agreed to pay 75 per cent of the €500,000 cost of demolishing the apartments, with Campos council paying the rest.
