PALMA Town Council will no longer allow any vehicles to park in front of the cathedral. On Monday, January 18, the new ruling prohibiting the parking of cars in the Mirador street came into effect.
The ruling by the council is to protect the historic patrimony of the city and the councillor for Mobility, Joan Ferrer, pointed out that “no other city with similar characteristics allows parking and nor should Palma.”
The council will offer 26 parking places in the Antonio Maura car park nearby for neighbours on a first come, first served basis. These reduced rates are for night time parking (from 6pm till 10am weekdays) and weekends and public holidays (all day).
However, neighbours in the area criticised the council for the lack of consultation, complaining that there was no possibility given to negotiate other options.
