    Andrew, do these figures include holiday parks ie intendedly built, dedicated second home/holiday let places? The figures for St Erth and St Merryn, places which I have a passing acquaintance with, suggest so. In that case these figures are not all “ordinary houses” taken over for holidays and perhaps that should be made clear by extending your categories.

    Hello Curacoa,

    They do not include holiday park accommodation. The list is from the official data on either council tax and business rates. It is a little hard to take out a house that is built and then only used as a holiday let/second home. It will be built as a house. Once reason why a change to planning legislation is needed. I wish I could expand the categories further, but without going street by street it would be very difficult. However, the sources I have used are good, as this data is what Cornwall Council use. Not a foolproof list, but about as accurate as you can get.
