There will be no ban on opening new apartments, the recategorization process is expected

first_img“This is not a ban initiative, nor is it being thought about and planned, but it is a matter of working well. We also talked about this at a meeting with representatives of the Family Tourism Association at the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, led by President Martina Nimac Kalcina, with the message that everyone in the destination, including family accommodation must participate and contribute to the creation of quality products”, The minister explained. “Given that, we are satisfied that it was said that there will be no ban or restrictions”, Said Nimac Kalcina and added that most private accommodation, approximately 70 percent, is categorized with three stars. Cappelli announced that this is why we should wait for the development and adoption of a new tourism development strategy, which will be a national plan for the sustainability of tourism, which will, among other things, define further procedures for family accommodation. Completion of the strategy is planned for this year. A statement by the tourism minister last week that the tourism ministry is considering a temporary ban or restriction on opening new apartments in a way that would allow cities and counties to restrict the opening of new apartments has raised a lot of dust among private renters. She pointed out that the Community absolutely agrees that for the sake of sustainable development, the destination should be diversified in relation to all types of accommodation and catering facilities, and local authorities should be empowered to make decisions that would affect the destination in that direction, but not prohibitions and restrictions, rather than other decisions and tools. Nimac Kalcina: We are satisfied that there is no ban and we imitate sustainable development The president of the Association of Family Accommodation at the Croatian Chamber of Commerce, Nimac Kalcina, believes that local units should decide for themselves in which direction to develop their destinations and take care of the equal ratio of all catering facilities, including family accommodation. He added that the meeting concluded that they will have the best information on everything after recategorization in the next three to four years, which will not only cover everyone from family accommodation, but also other types of accommodation in tourism. Reactions came from all sides, and social networks were “heated” by various comments. However, there will be no bans or restrictions on opening new apartments. Namely, at the meeting of the representatives of the Family Tourism Association at the Croatian Chamber of Commerce with Minister Gari Cappelli, it was concluded that private accommodation renters and those who intend to do so do not have to worry or fear work bans because they will not, but re-categorization which will cover everything, reports H1.

Brother and sister-in-law hoping to complete marathon – without falling out!

first_imgA brother and sister-in-law have proven that blood isn’t always thicker than water after agreeing to undertake this weekend’s Dublin City marathon together.Stephen McElhinney and Rachel Enfield have been a familiar sight around the country roads of Glenswilly and Lettetrkenny in recent months.The neighbours from Tullygay decided to put on their jogging shoes and tackle the 26.2 mile course which takes place n the capital this Sunday. Neither had ever ran before they decided to take up the challenge and to raise some much-needed funds for the Donegal Hospice.Stephen says they have hopefully put in enough miles to get across the line without too much pain come Sunday afternoon.“People ahem been so good and everyone who has ever done a marathon has offered us some bits of advice. Even those who have never done one have offered us plenty of advice,” laughed well-known bread-delivery man Stephen.Stephen, who rises for work each morning at 4am, has been trying to juggle his raining runs with Rachel who has to juggle her everyday life as a mum. Her cause has not been helped by the fact that husband Paddy flew to Lebanon six months ago on peace-keepong missions with the Irish Army.Big-hearted Paddy has made the ultimate sacrifice and has flown back to Ireland for a few days to support Rachel and Stephen before flying back to the Lebanon in a few days to complete his year long tour of duty.Rachel and Stephen have booked a hotel close to the starting line of the race so they won’t have to wake to early on the morning of the race.“I’m not sure if we’ve done the right thing there. We’re hearing now that Harcourt Street is full of hen and stag parties and they might keep us awake.“Don’t get us wrong, we might join them after the race but before the race I’m hoping we can get as much sleep as possible,” laughed Stephen.
