Cala Vadella Parking

The meeting also received a presentation on new parking facilities for Cala Vadella, which are considered to be urgently required to reduce the chaotic problems of last year following the withdrawal of previously available parking facilities by the new landowner.

The town hall have reached agreement with a landowner for use of 8,000 square meters located to the North of ​​Cala Vedella, near the new lookout that was opened in the spring.

According to the calculations of the City Council, the lands could accommodate 150-200 vehicles for public use, at a distance of some 300-350 meters from the beach.

This new parking area will be managed by the Vesins Association of Cala Vedella, through an agreement with the landowner.

Cala De Bou Roadworks

The meeting was chaired by Sant Josep Mayor, Josep Marí Ribas. Speaking of the roadworks to both the upper and lower arterial roads of Cala De Bou, that started at the beginning of the tourist season, Mayor Ribas said that he was “very aware of the inconvenience they are causing.”

“The works could have been done before, we are not happy. But postponing the problem meant that there would be continuing problems throughout the summer” he added.
