RESIDENTS of the Platja de Palma are complaining their problems with noise, drunkenness and dirt have not been eased. This comes after Palma City Council promised to try to resolve the situation and find solutions to ensure better relations between holidaymakers and residents.
They claim it has been “a year without solutions.” They report the reality is that “morning after morning it is the same story; gangs of people drinking in the street, unbearable noise, vandalism and fights. It’s difficult for the cleaning services and leads to a deterioration every day of the area’s image.”
Fire crews were forced to intervene on Tuesday in a troubled corner of s’Arenal after several bin containers were set alight. The local citizens group has moved all these complaints to the Monitoring Committee of Platja de Palma saying “We believe that these excesses directly affect the health of our neighbours and they are very stressed.”
