There was a period when a number of landowners were granted planning permission for building conversion for holiday use. However, it has been alleged that in some cases there was very little holiday use, or even none, and the conversions were used for residential. It would be better to formalise this, consider each site/building on its merits and then, if considered appropriate, grant permission but with clear conditions on use.
