P-05-975 Reconsider second home council tax uplift while illegal to travel to second homes

Text of Petition                      

Second home owners in Pembrokeshire are charged a 50% uplift on their council tax. During the Coronavirus outbreak it is illegal to travel to a second home, and therefore the homes cannot be used. This is an acceptable decision , as it reduces the potential of overwhelming rural health services. It seems only fair that, at the very least, the uplift of council tax is removed during the time that the police will fine anyone travelling to a second home.
