Formentera residents must be accredited to drive on local roads during formentera.eco enforcement

foto 2022v formenteraecoThe Formentera Office of Mobility reports that 7,505 resident vehicles whose owners hold valid blue zone parking accreditation or have paid the island's road tax were automatically cleared to access, drive and park on the island during the enforcement of formentera.eco from 15 June to 15 September.

Motorists can see if their vehicle has been cleared by logging their plate number in a section of www.formentera.eco. Individuals do not meet the above requirements can request accreditation simply on the same website. Trucks, high-capacity vans, tractors or trailers must also have a valid accreditation to be driven on the island. Accreditation is free of charge for residents.

In the days ahead the Consell will launch a communication campaign to make sure that local motorists either have the accreditation already or request it now. Formentera.eco rules will be enforced by local law enforcement and parking attendants and with license plate reading cameras, both mobile and fixed, that will be installed throughout the island.

New rates take effect for formentera.eco

foto 2022v for ecoThe Formentera Office of Mobility reports that new rates for authorisation to bring, drive and park cars and motorcycles on Formentera during the 2022 enforcement period of formentera.eco, 15 June to 15 September, both inclusive, have now taken effect.

Visitors bringing vehicles to the island can obtain accreditation in a few simple steps on www.formentera.eco. The daily rate for cars is €3, with a minimum payment of €15; for motorcycles and motor scooters it is €1.50/day and €7.50 minimum. "This year we have tripled the fee compared to last summer. Between this, and the minimum day-tripper rate of €15, we have managed to deter single-day visitors from saturating Formentera roads in the high season", explained Rafael González, Councillor of Mobility.

Residents pay no charge for accreditation, but must sign up on the website. Cars authorised for blue zone parking and private vehicles of residents who pay the local road tax will be automatically accredited. Drivers must enter their vehicle plate number on www.formentera.eco to determine whether the accreditation has been properly secured. In the days ahead the Consell will launch a communication campaign encouraging Formentera residents to register their vehicles and obtain accreditation.

Hybrid vehicles are eligible for a 50% discount, electric vehicles 100%, and residents of Eivissa, Mallorca and Menorca have free accreditation.

Formentera agrees to let Correos use island's system to geolocate rural homes to improve local service

foto 2022 gps correus The Consell de Formentera is pleased to report that it has allowed the Formentera branch of the national postal service to use its GPS system to geolocate 3,600 rural homes and 800 roads, beaches and places of interest. The Consell launched this geolocation system in 2016 to improve the response times of the island's emergency services.

"By enabling Correos to use this system, we hope that letter carriers can identify parcel delivery points more easily and offer a better service to islanders", explained Rafael González, Councillor of Mobility and Territory.

Formentera's letter carriers have already begun to use the system to identify addresses in remote corners of the island and the routes to access them. In the first days of operation, Correos improved ratios of shipments delivered in the Sant Francesc delivery unit by more than 60%. The local Correos office also asserts that the GPS system has helped reduce the number of items returned due to unknown or incorrect addresses.

The Consell de Formentera has collaborated by providing five free licences of the associated app, which is now used by letter carriers on their mobile terminals.

foto 2022 acces AThe Formentera Office of Mobility reports that controls on access to Platja de ses Illetes in the Ses Salines Nature Reserve will take effect tomorrow 12 May. Access to the areas of Es Cavall d'en Borràs and Llevant, also in the reserve, will be regulated from 1 June. As usual, access will be free for Formentera residents.

Tomorrow to 15 June, non-residents must pay €4 per car and €2 per motorcycle, then €5 and €3, respectively, until 15 July. Subsequently and through August, the fee climbs to €6/€3, before dropping to €5/€3 in the first half of September and €4/€2 by the second half of the month.

Pedestrians, bicycles, individuals with reduced mobility in vehicles and drivers of electric vehicles can also access the areas for free, while people with hybrid cars will receive a 50% discount on the entry fee. "Our goal is to make mobility in the natural reserve sustainable and avoid saturation in this ecologically valuable place and formidable tourist attraction", said Rafael González, Councillor of Mobility.

The rules remain in force until 15 September at the access point to Es Cavall d'en Borràs and Llevant, and until 30 September at the control point in Ses Illetes. The parking areas accommodate a total of 384 cars and 1,132 motorcycles.

Regulation at Es Cap lighthouse

Rules on motor vehicle access to Es Cap de Barbaria lighthouse will be rolled out this Sunday 15 May, and stay in force until 15 October. González said the initiative was about "preserving this natural site in the public estate of Sa Tanca d'Allà Dins".

The councillor pointed out that "for the last five seasons, motor vehicle access has been restricted with a barrier at kilometer 6.5 of the Es Cap road; the rules guarantee a satisfactory experience and the absence of obstacles for tourists and islanders visiting the lighthouse of Es Cap and Es Garroveret defence tower".

Before the fence there is a car park with capacity for sixty cars and one hundred motorcycles so that visitors can leave their vehicles and proceed to the lighthouse on foot or by bicycle.

At peak hours, from 11.00am to 1.00pm and 6.00pm to 10.00pm, there will be a guard/informant next to the barrier. The guard will also allow people with reduced mobility to access the area by vehicle.
