GOB invites you to attend an Extraordinary Plenary session on the Law of the Biosphere Reserve that will take place on Monday 11 April at 10.00 am at the Consell Insular (Local Governing Council) in Maó.

Despite the fact that the time does not suit those with working hours, GOB encourages everyone who can to be present during the discussion and for voting on this interesting proposal of a legislative text that can help to consolidate Menorca’s commitment to sustainability.

The proposed Law, which has come about after two years of procedures and public exposure, includes issues such as water resources, coastal marine waters, the possibility of limiting the influx of motor vehicles, the decarbonisation strategy of the island, the quality of the air, environmental criteria for public contracts, management of forestry and biodiversity, among other things.

With the approval of the Plenary Session, scheduled for this coming Monday, the Consell Insular exercises the capacity for legislative initiative for the second time. (The first time was for the Camí de Cavalls Law.) The proposal is then passed on to Parliament, where it will be discussed by certain parliamentary groups.
