NOISE LEVELS: Are high when planes take off from Palma’s airport.
THE Federation of Residents is asking the Palma City Council for help in supporting homeowners who want to soundproof homes near the airport.
According to the Palma airport operator Aena’s soundproofing plan, 779 of the 1,343 houses eligible to apply for soundproofing are already soundproofed and 11 others are in the process of being soundproofed. More than 400 (30 per cent) of the remaining homeowners have not requested soundproofing or the report required to carry out the process which residents are blaming on the lack of information available.
The president of the Federation Joan Forteza said that Aena is ‘complying with the plan but very slowly’ and stressed that it is very important those affected be insistent.
Forteza said that the town hall and Aena should provide information to residents about their rights regarding soundproofing and that measures should be taken to facilitate the process which currently must go through Madrid.
Residents in Coll den Rabassa, Can Pastilla and parts of Sant Jordi and Son Ferriol who want their houses soundproofed should live within the acoustic footprint of the airport, have a building permit prior to the environmental impact statement and have their home measured to prove the need for soundproofing.
