Free up local housing by taxing second homes

Comment 9th July 2010

Persons having second homes which are not permanently occupied (i.e. those using them for only a few weeks in the year and empty the rest of the time) could be subject to increased council tax and non-occupancy charges.

Why does this matter?

This would discourage them from taking up valuable housing in areas where local people are being forced out.
