Secondary homes: mayors alert

#HERAULT – Mayors of small towns in Haut-Languedoc are sounding the alarm about the proportion of second homes on their territory. For example, according to INSEE, 70% of housing in Cambon-et-Salvergues, the Béziers hinterland, are secondary homes. For the mayor of Fraïsse-sur-Agout, "this is too much. We are reaching the end of this tourist reception policy that we have pursued for more than fifty years". Same observation for Pierre Bailly, the mayor of Soulié: "We absolutely must find solutions to retain residents and bring in others if we do not want to disappear." These mayors are therefore thinking about other development projects, such as photovoltaics, in particular via the France Ruralités plan.
