BAR owners in Calvia have been told the new draconian sound limiters will remain in place.

It comes after a group of owners met with mayor Alfonso Rodríguez Bada on Tuesday in a bid to reverse the controversial ruling, which came into effect on May 1.

The new laws are forcing venue owners to install sound limiters that restrict music levels to no more than 62 decibels – the same as a car driving past or an air conditioning unit.

Each sound limiter cost €3,000 and must be bought through the same company.

Bar owners from Santa Ponsa and Magaluf are expected to meet tomorrow to decide on a plan of action.
