Requirement planning permission to use/let a residential property for holidays

Petition Details

The Government should pass legislation to require planning permission for residential properties to be used or let for holidays (personal holiday home or holiday let).

Additional Information

Property used as residential, should be registered as such with the council, and planning permission required to change this.

We have a housing crisis, which is aggravated by properties owned as second homes (for personal use or for profit as rentals). This means many local people, including key workers, struggle to get property to either buy or rent.

Requiring planning permission for change of use from residential to holiday homes, as already required in parts of Ireland, will keep residential property in the residential market.
