Formentera takes day out for forest-fire prevention

From 5.00pm to 8.00pm on Thursday, April 26, in the administration's hall of ceremonies, or Sala d'Actes, Formentera's Office of Environment will host a day dedicated to forest-fire prevention.

Formentera is an island with an unusually high ratio of forested land. Approximately 800 local buildings lack buffers protecting them against wildfires. Such buffers are not only considered necessary, they are also a legally-mandated safeguard which can facilitate the work of fire fighters.

Thursday, homeowners and forest-service professionals alike will be given tips on how to reduce the likelihood of a forest fire happening, and what to do in case one occurs.

Heavy rainfall this winter has so far prompted a springtime surge in growth of wooded areas. Rural affairs secretary Bartomeu Escandell described sound management of rural and forested land as “critical to keeping wildfire risk at bay” and encouraged as many islanders as possible to participate.

New by-law on outdoor patios

Occupancy permits issued under the previous ordinance are now invalid, and business proprietors who wish to exercise activity on the public thoroughfare must once again request authorisation for any outdoor instalations.

Article 10 of the ordinance (available on the website of the CiF office of urbanism) sets out the supporting documentation necessary to request a permit.

A reminder: under the new by-law, permits will not be granted to establishments that fail to guarantee business activity between May 15 and October 15.

Teams begin third phase of push to map Formentera's subaquatic surroundings

foto boatPatrimony and environment department officials in the Formentera Council report that this week operations are under way in the third phase of a project to map Formentera's surrounding waters from below. The effort entails sidescan sonar-powered prospections of the stretch of seaboard from cala Saona to es Cap de Barbaria lighthouse.

Statutory report requirements meant a prolonged permit process and the start date, initially planned for December 2017, was pushed back to April. The Council's governing committee OK'd the campaign and the accompanying “archaeological prospection” after

The campaign and accompanying archaeological probe were rubber-stamped January 22 by the Council's governing committee after having received a favourable ruling, last November 17, of the archaeological committee reviewing the case.

Formentera's underwater archaeological map, or Carta arqueològica subaquàtica, is a project of the Balearic institute for the study of marine archaeology (IBEAM) and the Formentera Council. The document is considered a key part of Formentera's 2017-2019 strategy for sensible management of the island's cultural patrimony.

IBEAM project director Javier Rodríguez Pandozi highlighted fifteen areas of interest the current push had turned up some fifteen areas of interest and said a fourth effort, forecasted for October, is aimed at a more in-depth study of nearby ruins.

In the words of patrimony secretary Susana Labrador, once the five parts of the campaign are complete, the resulting map will be a “valuable tool” for the Council, providing “location information and descriptions of the heritage sites at sea around Formentera”. Most important, however, are the Council's plans for how that information will be used—“to guarantee sound management and ensure the sites are protected”.

Help pinpointing heritage sites
The completed map will be owned by the Formentera Council. However, to safeguard sites against plundering, its consultation will be limited to specialists.

The heads of the research effort asked Formentera residents in general and fishermen in particular to cooperate in protecting sunken archaeological ruins by reporting any found objects to the Council's patrimony office or the GEAS arm of the Guardia Civil.
