The Consell de Capitalitat de Palma met today to approve the 2023 capital status agreements and the actions planned in the municipality of Palma as compensation for the costs of capital status for a total amount of 30.48 million euros. This item includes 27.9 million euros from the Govern de les Illes Balears and 2.5 million euros from the Consell de Mallorca.

Of this funding, the Govern and the Consell de Mallorca will make a specific contribution of 8.5 million (6 million from the Govern and 2.6 million from the Consell) so that the Town Hall can directly develop various municipal projects.

Among others, the Govern is contributing almost 2.6 million for the purchase of two plots of land from the co-owners of Mallorca’s former Lluís Sitjar stadium.

Investments complement the Govern’s contribution of 6 million that the Govern plans to make in the municipality amounting to 21.9 million from the general administration of the Autonomous Community and entities of the autonomous public sector. For example, the construction of a development of 57 public housing units in the Molinar neighbourhood and the refurbishment of the Carme building.

The Councillor of Finance and External Relations, Rosario Sánchez, valued the agreement and the actions financed with contributions from the Govern, totalling around 28 million euros, to comply with the Law of Capitality. She stressed that the territorialised expenditure in Palma in the 2023 General Budget amounts to 193 million euros, representing an increase of 25% over 2022.

The councillor also highlighted a complementary agreement approved today, by which a total of 2.5 million euros is reinstated, with its own funds, to finance the project to improve the lighting on the seafront of Playa de Palma, which was part of an ITS-2019 project suspended due to Covid-19.

The mayor of Palma, José Hila, stated that thanks to the Capitalidad investments, “Palma will be able to continue with the transformation of the city, a transformation already underway”. “The actions are committed to housing, the elderly, sport and facilities in the neighbourhoods,” said Hila.

The meeting was also attended by Mercedes Garrido, councillor for the Presidency, Public Function and Equality, on behalf of the government, and Pep Lluís Colom, island councillor for Finance and Public Function, on behalf of the Consell de Mallorca. Councillors Adrián García, Antoni Noguera and Francesc Ducros were also present on behalf of the Town Council.
