Live Music in Kalkan - new for 2009 PDF Print E-mail
Sunday, 05 April 2009

The Nur hotel is to bring live music to Kalkan on a regular basis, starting Wednesday 8th April 2009.  Whilst Kalkan has seen live music before in some restaurants and hotels, this initiative will see a number of bands making regular appearances throughout the summer season.

The type of music will include blues, pop and Turkish music.  Initially, three different bands will perform on different evenings, approximately between 8pm and midnight.

The owner of the Nur Hotel, Barış Gürses, has refurbished the hotel lounge to provide a purpose built venue, including a small stage.  The room has a new bar, is air-conditioned, and has had soundproofing work done to minimise the noise for neighbours.

Tax cuts to stimulate the Turkish economy PDF Print E-mail
Friday, 03 April 2009
The Turkish government is trying to stimulate the economy with targeted cuts in personal consumption taxes, and taxes that impact on small businesses.  

In mid March it was announced that some special consumption taxes (luxury taxes) were to be cut.  Towards the end of March it was further announced that VAT was to be cut for certain items.  Here is a summary of the key points in as far as they impact consumers.
  • Real estate (larger properties over 150 square metres), Land Registry fees have been cut from 1.5% to 0.5%.
  • Automobiles, tax cut from 37% to 16% for new cars bought, up to 1600cc.  Smaller tax cuts are seen for new larger engined vehicles.
  • Electrical goods, including white goods, TVs etc. tax cut from 6.7% to zero.
  • VAT has been cut on furniture for three months from 18% to 8%.
Many people are speculating about whether these cuts will be extended beyong three months, but there is no certainty that they will.  So now is an excellent time to spend money and get yourself a bargain.

Presidential Cycling Tour of Turkey PDF Print E-mail
Thursday, 02 April 2009
This month will see the return of the Presidential Cycling Tour of Turkey to Kalkan.

The race starts in Istanbul on 12th April and ends just over 1,200 km later in Alanya on 19th April.  Stage 6 of the tour, from Fethiye to Finike is on Friday 17th April and this is when the roadshow passes through Kalkan.

Last year there was a real buzz of excitement as the tour entourage arrived, complete with press pack, and TV helicopter.  This year will be no less colourful, so make a date in your diary to come out on to the streets and cheer them on.

Kalkan Election Results 2009 - update PDF Print E-mail
Wednesday, 01 April 2009
It has now been officially confirmed that the CHP candidate, and owner of the Fener Bar, Saim Karakurt is to form and lead the new local administration in Kalkan.

The voting could not have been any closer, but the challenge to the result has been adjudicated on, and the winner declared.  Which means that the Mayor can now build his team, develop his plans and focus on the next 5 years.

KTLN will bring you more on what these plans are, and in particular how they may impact on the non-Turkish community.

In the meantime, we wish the new Mayor and his team every success, and as they say in these parts - kolay gelsin.

Kalkan Election Results March 2009 PDF Print E-mail
Tuesday, 31 March 2009

On Sunday 29th March the Turkish residents of Kalkan voted in elections for a new Mayor.  The unconfirmed result is that the successful candidate is Saim Karakurt of the CHP party.  The provisional results are as follows:

- Cumhuriyet Halk Partisi, CHP - 41%
- Adalet ve Kalkınma Partisi, AKP - 40%
- Milliyetçi Hareket Partisi, MHP  18%

However the winning margin was extremely narrow and the result has been challenged, so we may not know the final outcome for a few more days.
