The lack of affordable housing makes it difficult to hire workers on the islands. The package of urgent housing measures announced by the authorities aims to increase the supply of affordable housing in urban areas of the municipalities of the Balearic Islands without consuming territory.
It is also envisaged to increase the height of constructed buildings, to use land that was not originally intended for residential construction for the new needs of the island, and to create new facilities at subsidized or limited prices. It is expected that the proposed innovations will make it possible to additionally allocate at least another 60 sq. m. m of residential space for each existing building.
