Formentera starts automatic renewal of blue zone parking permits

foto 2023i zona blava AThe Office of Mobility of the Consell de Formentera has started automatically renewing authorisations to park in Formentera's metred blue and green parking zones. Until now, renewals were done annually at the request of interested parties, but from this January, the Consell de Formentera will automatically renew authorisations provided motorists:

- are residents of Formentera.
- own the vehicle in question.
- pay the vehicle tax on Formentera.

Rafael González, mobility councillor, said the measure was designed to spare drivers paperwork and the inconvenience of an expired authorisation and having to wait to be authorised again. If any of the three requirements are not met or any document is missing, "the Consell will notify the interested party so they can address the issue in advance and avoid losing their authorisation", he added.

A total of 164 authorisations expired this January, 135 (82%) of which were automatically renewed. Another eight (5%) were rejected because the individuals in question are no longer residents and 21 (13%) did not meet one of the other requirements. The Consell has contacted individuals whose automatic renewal could not be processed. Questions? Send an email to mobilitat@conselldeformentera.cat or call 971321087 and ask for the Office of Mobility.

Finally, Councillor González stressed that residents can park for free in both blue and green zones. Metred parking was launched in 2015 in La Savina in response to the parking problems that existed in that town. "After seeing how well it worked, we expanded the regulated parking scheme to other towns where there were complaints about lack of parking", said the councillor. Metred parking is currently in place in La Savina, Sant Francesc, Sant Ferran and, in summer, Es Pujols.
