Charlie Hague and Megan Williams hand built this beautiful timber-framed roundhouse house, with straw bale walls, an earth floor, and a living roof, in Glandwr, North Pembrokeshire last summer for £15,000. It was built on the plot of land owned by Charlies parents that the couple had been living in a damp caravan on for the last 4 years and with the news that Megan was pregnant Charlie decided to build their own home.
Sadly now the home may have to be demolished as the couple did not have planning permisson for the property and the council feel the
" benefits of the development did not outweigh the harm to the character
and appearance of the countryside"
The home is actually situated next door to the Lammas Eco-village!!!! How their home can impact negatively on an eco-village is beyond me
So Moon to Moon readers I urge you to sign this petition to grant retrospective planning permission to Charlie and Megs roundhouse. With over 22,000 signatures already they only needed 2961 more signatures at the time this post was published. All that is needed is your name and where you live...
Thank you Kath for drawing my attention to this story xxx
