'Hundreds' of holidaymakers reported to Cornwall Council

By Michael Burton | 09 April 2020

Hundreds of second homeowners and holiday let rentees have been reported to Cornwall Council after the authority asked last week for evidence of anyone breaking the rules on travelling to the county for the weekend.

The council has been stepping up its campaign to deter owners of second homes and holidaymakers from visiting the county when the government advice is to stay home.  Over 200has  holiday lets and second homeowners have been reported to the council in the past week and police have been stopping cars and caravans on motorway routes into the county and at tourist spots.

Cornwall Council’s cabinet member for public protection Rob Nolan said most holiday lets had been closed but there were still a minority trading.

The council’s public protection team spent last weekend checking that holiday let providers like camp sites and cottages were closed after receiving some 200 reports of premises still being open despite being told to close.

Visit Cornwall has created a video highlighting the ’come back later’ message.
