One of the biggest challenges present and previous Palma de Mallorca council have faced is how to transform the capital into a viable city break destination and now, the local authority has decided to spend the best part of 1.3 million euros over the next 18 months on sprucing up some of the more degraded resorts such as parts of the Playa de Palma.The councillor for urban Developments, Sebastian Sanso, said yesterday that boosting tourism in the Palma city is going to be the principal way of dragging the municipality out of the recession. Sanso said that apart from the Palma city centre, the Playa de Palma needs to be in the best possible condition. The council hopes that by improving this Mallorca resort’s image, summer bookings to Mallorca will increase and in order to do that, steps to improve security, street lighting, street and beach cleaning, for example are all going to be made.
