Remove council tax reductions for homes that are only occupied for part of the year

(This issue was also discussed in the Housing thread.)

There is a lack of housing in rural communities, with tourists buying second houses and there not being enough provision for local communities.

The council tax reductions encourage people to own property as holiday homes, and is a constant drain of people from the area.

Communities in remote rural communities are dying because of this.

 

Why the contribution is important

This is important as it will make housing available for local people and make communities more sustainable.
