In response to complaints from residents and businesses regarding the progressive deterioration of Cala en Porter, Alaior Council has spent 1.3 million euros on the urbanisation in the last two years. Although he admitted that there was still a lot of work to be done, the Mayor of Alaior, Pau Morlà, stated that the overall impression now "is positive". He illustrated this statement with statistics taken from a survey of 500 tourists visiting Cala en Porter last summer who gave the urbanistation marks of 8.5 in respect of level of expectation and satisfaction.

Morlà explained that the 1.3 million euros was used to give a face-lift to the centre of the urbanisation, by creating a new square, a children's playground, a general purpose hall and improving the signposting. He also pointed out that over the last three years, between 80,000 and 100,000 euros have been spent annually on resurfacing roads designated as "priority" by the residents themselves.

Although the collection services for household goods and garden rubbish were doubled last year, many residents are not making use of them and are dumping these items, leading to numerous complaints recently.

Work on the half-million euro project on the Paseo de los Miradores has been delayed due to waiting for a report from the Demarcación de Costas, which is involved as part of the coastline is affected.

The Council is looking into the request for a daily bus service and the possibility of GESA and Telefónica removing telegraph posts and cables. Morlà added that there is already a project to improve the road between Cala en Porter and Alaior.
