St. Ives are to have a vote, to stop people buying second homes.
Locals say they are being priced out of the market, whilst property owners say they are bringing in much needed revenue from tourists.
It is probably something that affects many places. Maybe a better idea would be to allow a set number for second homes or alternatively give the vendors the option of either selling to locals or selling to a second home owner.
Not sure if that would work, but it must be infuriating to live with. Londoners spreading their wings again, to other peoples green and pleasant lands, hey Casper ?
...and those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.FN
