Invest in local first homes - Clamp-down on tax-dodging second homes

We note that the law presently permits thousands of second home owners to avoid paying a fair share of Council, Business and Income Tax to the detriment of legitimate holiday businesses, local residents, taxpayers and public services. They also have unacceptably preferential influence in national elections.

We therefore demand that Cornwall is granted the planning, tax and voter registration powers to ensure fairness in the housing and holiday letting sectors and equity in the tax, public service and electoral registration systems.
