Remove holiday home restrictions particularly in the Norfolk area of the UK
Why does this idea matter?
Removing the Holiday Home restrictions in Norfolk would allow more local people to buy these properties to live in permanently as at present there is a shortage of affordable homes particularly in some of the rural areas where many of these type of properties are located.
Currently owners of these type of properties are having difficulty selling them in Norfolk which appears unfair as many other parts of the country do not impose this type of restriction.
There will be less incentive for old agricultural buildings IE barns etc to be devleoped in the future if this does not change in Norfolk and as these buildings are no longer suitable or viable for farmers to use the buildings will become derelict and an eyesore.
Would it not be more sensible to remove restrictions and allow these buildings to be developed for local people to live in ?
