Holiday Lettings: Consell Road Trip
The President of the Consell de Mallorca, Miquel Ensenyat, and the Minister of Territory and Infrastructures, Mercedes Garrido, met with the residents of Alcúdia this week to shed light on the zoning of holiday rentals on the island.
The proposal is currently in the consultation period, and the consul is on a road trip to various municipalities. During the meetings, residents are encouraged to contribute and make proposals for improvement. The Alcudia meeting was also attended by the Territorial and Landscape Insular Director, Miquel Vadell, and the Mayor of Alcudia, Antoni Mir.
During the meeting, all proposals that were noted. The Consell assured the audience that their intention is to create a bill with the maximum consensus possible.
Alcúdia is one of the interior centres considered to be saturated, a conclusion arrived at after analyzing various indicators (these include infrastructure and resources, territorial balance, characterization and access to housing). As a saturated area, tourist rentals are allowed in single-family and multi-family homes for up to 60 days a year, as long as it is the owner's primary residence.
The coastal areas of the municipality are not considered saturated. Therefore, holiday rentals are allowed in single-family and multi-family homes 365 days a year, as well as the maximum 60 days if it the property is a primary residence.
As in the rest of the island, the protected rustic ground and the industrial estates, holiday rental is not allowed. In common rustic ground, tourist stays are allowed in single-family homes 365 days or 60 days.
On Friday, February 16, the next stop on the Consell roadtrip is in Puerto Pollensa, at the Miquel Capllonch Municipal Centre at 7pm.
