FLOATING PARKS: Numbers are to be reduced.
CALVIA has approved a motion to remove floating waterparks from beaches in its jurisdiction.
The proposal made by Esquerra Oberta (Open Left) was unanimously agreed upon by all the parties represented at Calvia’s full council meeting. The beaches in question are Oratori in Portals, Santa Ponsa, Magalluf, Son Maties, Palmanova, Es Carregador, Tora and Palmira.
The motion calls for the administration to review contracts and records pertaining to the installation of the floating waterparks to check their suitability and to remove those failing to meet all requirements.
Rafel Sedano, spokesperson for Esquerra Oberta, argued that installations at various beaches in 2014, although complying with the legal requirements, were excessive and that according to what had been written, could be in conflict with regulations governing areas included within the Natura 2000 network for the conservation of natural heritage.
