Welsh councils consider second homes tax increase

Seven Welsh councils with holiday home hotspots are considering increasing council tax on second homes.

Ceredigion, Pembrokeshire, Anglesey, Conwy, Powys, Carmarthenshire and Gwynedd are exploring new powers to charge up to 100% extra.

The Welsh Local Government Association said it meant second homes could make a "fair contribution" to the community.

However, Gwynedd said a potential loophole could mean councils were worse off.
