THE City Council of Calvià in Mallorca, Spain has announced that it will continue to allocate public resources this year to boost the modernisation of commercial establishments in the main tourist areas of the municipality.
The offer of council funds has been relatively low in recent years, where in 2019, only 9 businesses successfully applied for grants to improve the appearance of their premises. A total of €75,000 had been allocated by the Council for this aid, but last year only €20,308 was taken from the pot.
At the end of last year, Alfonso Rodríguez, the Mayor of Calvià, announced that a great deal of resources would be made available to improve bars, clubs, restaurants and shops in the region, where there would be “new and more potent” grants for modernisation.
The grants are intended to be used for improving the condition of establishments such as painting, signage and furnishings.
