20.03.2015 – Swiss Parliament passes Law on Secondary Homes

Swiss Parliament passed today, with a wide majority, the Law on Secondary Homes. Both Houses approved the compromise signed by Vera Weber, President of Fondation Franz Weber and Helvetia Nostra, and representatives of the conservative parties.

The Parliament thus decided to make the law stricter and to respect, at the last minute, the Swiss people's will. In spite of the improvements, the law remains flawed. Fondation Franz Weber and Helvetia Nostra will not launch a referendum, but will keep a watchful eye on any new development in the field.
