Shouldn’t be a problem paying Double Council tax then.

Careful what you wish for. Better by far to have miserable wealthy people, here for two weeks a year, than more social housing, filled with anti social people with their clones wrecking everything , and the parents paying in nothing but ‘claiming’ everything going

They’ll probably boost the housing (while reducing house prices) by building on the marsh land and then wonder why the houses get flooded.

Yarmouth isn’t cheap because they have a great marina, easy access to the mainland and get this Cowes, a modern fixed link swing bridge that works. Sandbanks is the no.1 expensive, but it also happens to be the location of the infamous naturist beach too. So what you save in clothing is presumably spent on a more luxurious home. Sandbanks also has a chain ferry and it rattles a long happily every day without breakdowns.
