Residents of Green Hollows Country Park feel trapped due to an on-going planning dispute.
15 homes were bought to be used as permanent residences only for the owners to be told after that the buildings were classified as holiday homes.
Residents, who have been allowed to live there themselves, have been told that the houses will revert to holiday homes if they're sold, reducing their value by more than half.
