Petition Review the decision allowing local authorities to increase council tax premiums on second homes to 300%

I’m concerned that the significant contribution second homeowners make to the local economy have not been fully considered and explored in relation to this policy. Whilst appreciating that there is a challenge to ensure that there is affordable housing for local people, placing such a financial burden on second homeowners is not the answer.
As second homeowners who spend every weekend in our second home, we feel part of the community and have been warmly welcomed.

More details

We spend our money locally when we visit, including employing local people to build our home. The amount second homeowners contribute cannot be underestimated.
Many second homeowners weren’t aware of the Welsh Government consultation ending in November 2021 and therefore feel our voices and concerns have not been heard.
