Hotel Formentor owners insist all work is legal

On Tuesday, the owners of the Hotel Formentor in Pollensa said that all the work that was carried out “complies with legal requirements and the necessary municipal permits”.

It was in response to the stop work order which was published Monday by the mayor of Pollensa, Andrés Nevado. The mayor had himself responded to a technical report from the town hall which called into question the legality of the work, in particular the demolition of the old building, as well as complaints from environmentalists GOB and the main opposition group to the town hall. , Junts Avancam.

The order was sent to Formentor Bay SL, the hotel project company, which stressed that it was the “main tourist project under development on the island”. He has a investment of more than 260 million euros, “aiming to reposition a historic hotel on the world map of luxury tourism”. “It is a project based on firm sustainability criteria, oriented towards quality tourism and the enhancement of the local economic impact of the hotel; the workforce will be tripled.”

According to the legally established procedures, the owners have a period of 15 days to contest the stoppage order. As the treatment of new demolition and reconstruction permit started a few weeks ago, it could be that these authorizations are obtained before the 15 days, which would mean that the mayor’s decree would, in practice, have no effect.

Meanwhile, the company was given 24 hours on Monday to cease operations or face closure of the site and fines.
