THE GOB (Ornithological Group of the Balearic Islands) has requested a plan to encourage the use of municipal lighthouses as public facilities.
In a statement, the GOB asks for the government to stop the privatisation agreed for some of these buildings and has encouraged the population to protest against them, as they claim the Port Authorities of the Balearic Islands are prioritising financial profitability over the citizens’ general interest.
In their statement, this organisation reminds that some lighthouses are located in privileged natural spaces such as the Llebeig in Sa Dragonera and others that are included in urban sites which could be used as public spaces, museums or educational centres, such as those in Botafoc, Ciutadella, Portopi, Portocolom, Capdepera or Soller.
