South Devon MP blasts second home ownership
SOUTH Hams MP Dr Sarah Wollaston has blasted second home ownership for ‘sucking the life out of our communities’.
In a series of tweets on Saturday, Dr Wollaston criticised second home owners for creating ‘selfish’ ghost towns and villages.
She complained that ‘too many young people can’t afford to rent , yet alone buy in south Devon, yet hundreds of properties remain empty for 50 weeks a year’.
The Conservative MP invited her Twitter followers to contact her with ideas for increasing the supply of ‘genuinely affordable housing’ for young people.
