They've been on about it in the South West for years. The basic problem is that some small towns might have a year round population of (say) 5K, but in the summer months it can balloon to 10 times that. So then the problem is you need water, sewerage and bin collections capable of supporting 50K people, but the 5K people that actually live there don't want to pay for it.

On the other hand, they could discourage the tourists from bringing their money to spend there and see how that works out for the local economy. ;)
