Plans to take Cyngor Gwynedd to court over the introduction of a 100% tax premium on second homes have been dropped due to "potential pitfalls".


The campaigners said the the risks involved would "outweigh the chances of success", and that as a result they would not "take the matter further as a group".


The group raised a total of £8,070 using the 'Crowdjustice' platform to fund the legal action.


Anthony Chancellor described the council's decision to increase the tax premium on second homes as "unfair" and "discriminatory".


Chancellor accused the council of "promoting hostility towards English people", adding that the decision "disproportionately affects those who aren't Welsh."
