Allegations to the General Plan of Ports of the Balearic Islands

06/10/2021

On 30 September, we presented a total of 25 allegations to the General Harbour Plan, calling for a reduction in the impact of the nautical sector on the coastal marine environment, with special attention to fragile and valuable areas such as shallow bays, where an increase in the number of moorings with buoy fields is foreseen. 

The General Plan for Ports was born out of the need to establish port management criteria. We share this need and we appreciate the fact that the explanatory memorandum expresses the desire to preserve the Balearic coastline by refraining from the construction of any facility that could have a negative environmental impact. Even so, we have noted with concern that throughout the development of the Plan, actions are foreseen that have strong negative environmental impacts, such as the lengthening of docks, new dredging, new buoy fields or the construction of ramps and dry marinas, some of which are gaining ground in the sea.
