Palma thinks green with ecological corridors to oxygenate the city - Today News Post News Post || Euro News:

The new General Plan of Palma includes in its proposal four new large green areas that, if approvedWe saw what wasn, will oxygenate the city and allow it to have several ecological corridors that will cross it from the suburbs to the sea. The idea of the project, in line with European regulations, is to set up a network of parks or green spaces that will connect the different parts of the city centre by taking advantage of newly built areas, which will have to be adapted to the regulations, or by using the banks of streams.

The document proposes the creation of a large green area between the Son Moix stadium and Son Ximelis called Son Roca corridoris permitted, with cohorts.. This land is partly developable but future developments will have to respect an ecological strip that will eventually end, associated with the torrent of sa Riera and the so-called Falca Verda.

The second major proposal of the Plan foresees another large linear park taking advantage of the banks of the Torrent Gros, from the boundary between Palma and Marratxí to the sea. The current Plan, which dates from 1998, allows the construction of buildings near the torrentscan resume with capacity limits., but with the new regulations this will be prohibited as it will be declared as undevelopable. “The idea is to avoid the overflows that construction in or near the torrents can create and, at the same time, to recover resources since, in case of heavy rains, the water will filter through these reforested areas and reach the aquifers,” says Gabriel Horrach, general director of Urban Planning at Palma town hallTHE CANADIAN PRESS.
