The court has given the Balearic port authority until June 6 to present observations regarding the Council's request for a “cautionary suspension” of the plans to relocate the landing.

May 18 last, the Council issued the request —an appeal to defend the rights of Formentera residents— which had the support of all the Formentera political parties. The administration has also contacted the president of the Govern Balear in Palma in order to facilitate dialogue on the matter.

Escandell described the day's gathering as the first contact in what would hopefully lead to cooperation between the two groups.

Formentera signs agreement on animal health with livestock farmers

ramaders 3abrilGathered this morning in the Formentera Council (CiF) plenary hall, CiF president Jaume Ferrer and Santi Tur, president of the island's group of livestock farmers, put their signatures on a partnership agreement for animal health.

The agreement is valid through December 31, 2016, and promises €37,000 in financing for the Associació de Ramaders de Formentera. The association will use the money to purchase vaccines and set in motion a campaign for animal health, an initiative the group will undertake with a veterinary office.

Ferrer called the cooperative alliance a source of pride and Tur described it as “indispensable”. Councillor of farming, livestock and fishing, Bartomeu Escandell, was also present at the signing. He hinted that an additional, one-off aide package was in the works for later this year. “Harvests this year are expected to be affected by the drought,” said the councillor, “so we've put in an order for animal feed.”
