ONE of the island’s key tourist resorts is taking on the authorities over rental zoning.

Alcudia town hall has dubbed the new rules as ‘unrealistic’ and refused to zone the area.

The town hall has sent a technical report to the Consell de Mallorca explaining that it believes creating no rental areas would adversely affect the local economy.

It proposes that rentals should be allowed from the historic city centre all the way out to rural areas, in both primary homes and second houses.

It also insists that rentals should be allowed for 360 days a year.

Alcudia boasts over 10,000 tourist rentals, over eight percent of Mallorca’s rentals.

Mallorca’s towns have one month to consider the government’s plans and submit their comments and concerns.
