A Playa D’en Bossa based business has been fined the maximum 6,000€ for distributing event promotion flyers on Ses Salinas beach.
A statement issued by Sant Josep town hall does not name the business, stating only that they are in the leisure sector and work out of Playa D’en Bossa. As the latest in a line of tough sanctions commenced and confirmed by Ibiza’s southern district, it demonstrates a further statement of the no-nonsense stance being taken by the council.
There is reason to indicate it was a smaller business, however Sant Josep requested the maximum fine on the grounds that the infraction occurred inside the Ses Salinas national park – an area where all forms of ‘dynamic advertising’ are strictly prohibited.
Those held responsible had appealed their punishment, however Palma’s court number 2 rejected the appeal and confirmed the imposition of the maximum 6,000€ penalty.
The case was initiated in 2015 when local police apprehended people distributing flyers on Salinas beach.
The borough made the headlines earlier in the summer when stating their intention to ban music from all beach clubs, stating that they did not agree such a class of business use even exists.
They have recently fined the Cova Santa club a second 10,000€ for operating beyond their permissions, and have requested prison for the owner of Blue Marlin, held responsible for an illegal extension of the business premises.
