The current Law of Ports will put an end to almost 10 years of demands by the Balearic nautical sector. The local government has been working nearly a year on the modification of the current normative, approved in 2005, to regulate the infrastructures under the regional competency, and the new text is almost ready. It has already been registered in the Parliament and has the backing of the whole industry: marinas, yacht clubs and the government itself. On Friday the last amendments were added before the parliamentary process.
The absolute majority of the PP in Parliament guarantees that the process won´t get disrupted. It will go ahead with all the corrections and important changes. The most prominent one deals with the measures in case of abandoned vessels and late payments in the ports of indirect management on the islands, an issue that has caused a lot of problems for the yacht clubs and marinas, and nearly 10 years of complaints about it. The amendment was presented by Popular Party representative in the Parliament, Carlos Veramendi.
