Holiday occupancy conditions will be placed on new unserviced holiday accommodation requiring that:

  • It is used for holiday purposes only and shall not be occupied as the sole or main residence of the occupiers; and
  • It shall be available for commercial holiday lets for at least 140 days a year and no let must exceed 31 days (lxii); and
  • A register of lettings / occupation and advertising will be maintained at all times and shall be made available for inspection to an officer of the local planning authority on request.

A seasonal occupancy condition will be attached where the accommodation is not suitable for year-round occupation by nature of its location, design or proximity to a habitat that needs extra protection at certain times of the year.
