5 point plan launched to tackle ‘unsustainable’ North Wales ‘second homes crisis’

There are five things that need to be done to alleviate the second homes crisis in North West Wales according to Plaid Cymru.

Over a third of homes sold in Gwynedd and Anglesey in the last financial year were purchased as second properties.

Plaid Cymru have now said that the time has come for the Welsh Government to “take firm action”.

The Welsh Government said it was already doing that and was on target to build 20,000  affordable homes across the country.

But Plaid has called for immediate action and recently published a report containing five main action points to prevent the holiday homes situation in the North West from “spiralling further out of control”.

Plaid Cymru’s shadow housing minister Delyth Jewell MS has spoken out on the issue saying that people all over Wales are fully aware of the “unsustainable holiday homes situation” in the area.

She said: “Twelve

Fire weather watch for 38,000 Sonoma County homes and businesses could lose power as North Bay upgraded to red-flag warning

More than 38,000 homes and businesses in Sonoma County could lose power as the strongest winds of the 2020 fire season are forecast to rip over the Bay Area beginning Sunday, prompting Pacific Gas & Electric Co. to consider turning off electricity to more than 466,000 customers throughout the state.

The preemptive power shutoff, done so the utility can prevent its equipment from sparking new fires during gusty weather, would be the most widespread of the year so far if the utility decides to pull the trigger, PG&E spokeswoman Mayra Tostado said.

Expected gusts of 70 mph in the hills and up to 50 mph on the Santa Rosa Plain, paired with an ongoing dry spell, prompted the National Weather Service on Friday to issue a pair of red flag warnings for both the Bay Area hills and lower-lying areas.

“The really strong, critical time for winds will be Sunday

Darling Homes, a subsidiary of Taylor Morrison Corp., has acquired more than six acres on Vanguard Way south of Forest Lane in Dallas.

The vacant property is just east of U.S. Highway 75, adjacent to the Urban Reserve neighborhood.

Darling Homes plans to build 21 houses in a project it calls Enclave at Vanguard Way. The one and two-story houses will range from 3,000 to 4,000 square feet.

“This is a rare infill opportunity,” Keith Hurand, Dallas Division President for Darling Homes, said in a statement. “This location allows homebuyers to not only build on an oversized lot but also to be inside the loop in a highly desirable Richardson submarket with a prestigious Dallas address.

“Enclave at Vanguard Way offers one of the few opportunities in Dallas to build

Fifield Companies will chop 14 stories and 137 units off its proposed condominium tower on the Near North Side following complaints from the neighboring condo building.

The developer’s new plan calls for a 29-story tower instead of the 43-story building at 125 West Maple Street, Block Club reported. The new project makes it shorter than the Gold Coast Galleria condo building next door, at 111 West Maple Street.

But that has not appeased Galleria condo owners, who had wanted the Fifield project set back 60 to 80 feet from their building, according to the report. That did not happen, and the setback remains at just 20 feet.

Fifield’s revised proposal eliminates a third of its condo units and half the parking spaces, leaving 269 residences and 98 parking spots, according to the

After Vancouver and West Vancouver, North Vancouver boasts the most expensive real estate in Greater Vancouver. According to a Century 21 report earlier this year, the value of the average detached house rose to $690 per square foot (in contrast, downtown is nearly twice as expensive at $1,192 per square foot).

At these prices, North Van remains beyond the budget of many first-time homebuyers. That is, unless they’re looking for a one-bedroom condo — according to , $400,000 can still buy you a place in the city.
