The latest iteration of the Local Plan as well as including inflated figures to accommodate and encourage people to move to Cornwall also includes a figure of 3321 to allow for more second/holiday homes.
Estimates for 2011 give a figure of 14,400 second homes and 8,300 holiday homes, a total of 22,700 (78% of the CoSERG target for the Local Plan!).
What about a target for reducing the existing total of second/holiday homes? A reduction each year of 2.5% would release 570 houses each year!
