ST IVES, UNITED KINGDOM - APRIL 14: A seagull squawks in the popular seaside resort of St Ives on April 14, 2016 in Cornwall, England. Due to the pressures that second and holiday homes are having on the town's housing market the council has asked residents to vote in a referendum on May 5 on a new town plan which includes a promise to restrict second home ownership. If the vote is passed on May 5, all new housing developments will only get permission if the homes are to be reserved by people to live in full time. People whose main residence is elsewhere will not be allowed to buy the property. (Photo by Matt Cardy/Getty Images)
