Help Cornwall Council stop second home and holiday let use.

Cornwall Council is asking people to contact them if they become aware of any businesses that are letting out rooms or properties, or if second home owners come on holiday.

The Government has confirmed that self-catering cottages and Airbnbs are included in a list of facilities to be closed.

It previously ordered the closure of camp sites, hotels, guesthouses and B&B’s.

Devon and Cornwall Police says it will take action against people who it considers have made non-essential journeys, such as to go on holiday.

The council said it is aware of some providers acting illegally.

Anyone with information is asked to email - businesscompliance@cornwall.gov.uk

Inspector Miles Topham from Devon and Cornwall Police says "We will work closely with and support our partners in protecting the public. If people undertake non-essential travel which could include travelling to second homes then we reserve the right to take enforcement action which will be considered on a case by case basis.”
