Holiday Homes

Consider both sides of this issue. Holiday homes can make housing more expensive, and sometimes out of the reach of local people.

It can lead to empty housing at low season times of the year and less people using local services which can put them at risk.

However, tourism brings in money and people to the area and creates jobs.

Some of the owners of the holiday homes are local people and some holiday homes are family properties.

It is important to understand the impact of holiday homes on local areas and appreciate the sensitivities.

 

Why the contribution is important

This is important as sometimes there can be pressures on housing stock and local services. There can also be impacts on tourism and jobs.
