Partnership with small and medium-sized business group of Eivissa-Formentera

foto-signatura-conveni-pimef1CiF president Jaume Ferrer and Pep Mayans, chairman of Eivissa and Formentera's association for small and medium-sized businesses (PIMEF), signed a deal to create training opportunities for business owners, coordinate with the Council's commerce department and support the sector through consulting, market research and marketing for trade and industry.

The Formentera Council will give PIMEF €22,000 and, in turn, PIMEF pledges to oversee concept and marketing strategy upgrades in 2019, as well as offer tools for local businesses to kick-start their activity and grow in an increasingly competitive market. The group will additionally host courses in professional development and give advice to islanders and PIMEF's director will conduct support initiatives at the CiF commerce department.

Council announces openings to bolster vehicle regulation and other summer services

foto consell premsaThe Formentera Council's human resources department reports that islanders keen to add muscle to Formentera's fledgeling vehicle regulation service and nautical sports centre (known as CENF for Centre d'Esports Nàutics de Formentera) will get their chance in a few days.

In an effort to maximise the apparatus that will be charged with tracking the vehicles that enter, circulate and park on the island, the administration wants to enhance the current three-person team by adding a university degree-holding project operative. The individual selected for the position will be responsible for overseeing the day-to-day progress of the project as well as coordination with organisations and businesses affected by the measure. The Council will also seek to charge a technical specialist with coordination of the project's database and an administrative assistant to stay on top of new registrations.

The administration is additionally looking for an individual with an advanced degree and knowledge of sailing to work within the soon-to-be opened CENF in la Savina, not to mention an IT specialist with an advanced degree in this area.

Descriptions of the positions will be published in the coming days—CiF officials say before Easter—to the public sector section of the SOIB, the job seekers' service in the Balearics. The application process is digitised and can be completed online.

New pool of candidates

In preparation for the summer season, between Easter and May the Formentera Council will build a pool of representatives to meet staffing needs at la Mola lighthouse, CENF and the island's “Tourism Info Sites” (Oficines d'Informació Turística), in addition to a catalogue of pre-screened blue zone parking attendants, inspectors, summer school staff and cleaning personnel.

Misprint won't effect start of registration process for holiday rentals

carrer-de-sant-francesc alfred1The land office of the Formentera Council wishes again to apologise for a soon-to-be corrected misprint and hereby issues the present statement to inform islanders why the episode will not impact registration of vacation property rentals projected to start this April.

The publishing error involved new underpinnings on holiday rentals, initially expected—before the error occurred—to take effect in late summer. Reglament 1/2015, the statute that is presently in effect and which directs the start of the approaching registration process is in force until its replacement takes effect.

Three boxes must be ticked before rollout of the registration can take place: changes, including to tourism zoning and a cap on holiday rental permits, bringing the island's “Land Strategy” (Pla Territorial Insular) into compliance with regional tourism legislation; a new regulatory ordinance to set prices on holiday rental permits; and approval of the so-called “quality holiday rentals plan” (pla de qualitat d'estades turístiques).

The measures will receive final approval at the one-off plenary assembly scheduled this April, setting the stage for commencement of the registration process before the summer season starts, as previously announced by the Council.
