Just wanted to share this and wondered if anyone might be willing to take the time to send a letter and/or email of support?

Will You Help ?

Charlie and Meg are living in a beautiful roundhouse, built by Charlie on our land in Glandwr. The house is unobtrusive and low impact, built mainly from local and recycled materials. They want to stay in the village to bring up their family within the local community, and to work on the land. Their retrospective planning application is with the council now and they need as much support as they can get! We are all aware of how hard it is nowadays for young people to get housing, and Charlie and Meg desperately want to stay here.
Please support our application: Letters can be submitted online via using planning reference number 12/1070/PA or they can be sent to Director of Development, County Hall, Haverfordwest, Pembs, SA61 1TP, also quoting planning reference number 12/1070/PA. Letters need to be received by the 4th of April.
We know it’s a pain to ask but if you do write a letter, could you please email us a copy of it (to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address)), as letters have been known to get lost.

The couple in question are in their mid-20s, have grown up in the area, and their home was built on family-owned land - it was completed just before their baby was born last year. It’s situated near the same village (Glandwr) as the Lammas eco-village which is just a few miles down the road from me. They’re now seeking retrospective planning permission (never a good move with Pembrokeshire County Council who aren’t the most, ummm, supportive organisation, based on personal and family experience wink ). An enforcement notice has already been served by PCC. Letters and emails of support would be greatly appreciated. smile
