THE Palma Cathedral area neighbourhood association has requested that the city government to take into account their right to park when applying restrictions at the monument’s viewpoint.
This request comes a week after the heritage preservation association ARCA petitioned the government to ban parking at the viewpoint and its inner square during the day, to help preserve the area.
Residents have demanded their rights be heard before any decisions are taken, and for the government to consider the disadvantages resulting from the widespread increase of tourism, the lack of control on access to the area, the number of taxis and horse carriages and frequent religious, military and civil events in the cathedral.
“A great number of senior citizens and families with elderly members live in the area, and they need to park relatively close to their homes,” read the statement issued by the neighbourhood association, adding, “The parking places at the viewpoint are more than half of the total places in our neighbourhood.”
“The centre of Palma is turning into a theme park for the exclusive use of tourists,” the statement concluded.
