Welsh Government announces three-pronged approach to address "second home crisis"

On 6th July, The Welsh Minister for Climate Change, Julie James, set out an “ambitious three-pronged approach” to address the impact of second home ownership on Wales’ communities.

The three-pronged approach will focus on:

  • support - addressing affordability and availability of housing,
  • regulatory framework and system - covering planning law and the introduction of a statutory registration scheme for holiday accommodation; and
  • a fairer contribution - using national and local taxation systems to ensure second home owners make a fair and effective contribution to the communities in which they buy.
