A referendum for the residents of St Ives was held after a surge in holiday homes in the Cornish town and a shortage of affordable housing.
The plans mean new housing projects will get planning permission only if reserved for full-time residents.
More than 80% of voters backed the ban. However, a judicial review bid has been lodged against Cornwall Council by a local firm for allowing the referendum.
Comment A step in the right direction. However, as we have stated before, the planning system should operate in such a way as to prevent the conversion of dwellings in permanent use to holiday homes/lets.
What about a vote on the unsustainable housing targets in the local plan?
