Save the Hobbit House in North Pembrokeshire, UK

The hobbit house is an excellent example of what people should be doing to live in a way that as ecologically sustainable as possible. By creating a home out of local materials and in harmony with its natural environment, Charlie and Megan have enhanced the countryside around Glandwr, North Pembrokeshire, not diminished it. A regular home would have removed the trees and bushes in the nearby area and implemented a lawn, disrupting the character and appearance of the countryside far more than the 'hobbit house'. Planning Inspector Iwan Lloyd must reverse his decision and allow this family to stay in their beautiful home.

      I believe people should be able to build their own low impact home without being taxed massively by the state.
