daren richards started this petition to General public

we are trying to set up a smallholding with 3 static caravans on site so we can offer inner city deprived families/autistic children the chance to experience life on a smallholding, there stay would be FREE !!!!. they will interact with the animals /crops there will also be a large kitchen so they can learn cooking skills and a woodwork shop to make things from wood and just have a break from there normal lives. as we all know going on holiday can cost a small fortune when you have a family,

we are setting up the animal side of things at the moment we have 3 pigs some chickens and more animals to follow this year, all our animals have been raised from babies so they are very friendly and any animals we get later will be babies also. 

we put a planning application in to the council to set this up and we also have a converted bus that we live in on site , but the application was refused and the appeal was declined and an enfocement notice was upheld , the location already has double stables there and there are a number of dwellings around us,  including a living scuplture house that is being build at the moment if you google hux shard you will see the building 

we were refused planning on these grounds its outside the local council plan , it would be an alien feature on the landscape, and we would be dependant on a motor vehicle  well if you look at the hux shard you will see this is not inkeeping with the area and is very alien to the landscape !!! and i think most of us use a motorvehicle for our day to day living  and being outside the local plan well so is the hux shard building but this was approved under paragraph 55 outstading building ? but at the end of the day a dwelling is a dwelling no matter what it looks like and what it is made of.  ie= eco house , bus , log cabin  there all classed as dwellings if you live in them  and our bus and caravans would be very carbon nutural as we use solar and wind for power 

we have owned the land in question for 30 years and our dream is to set this up and help others but east devon council is against it all there are rules put in place by local councils but when it comes down to it they break there own rules to suit themselves there are so many housing estates being built a mile away from our site this was approved.  they also built a town with hundreds of houses this was all built on agricultural land in open countryside but because the council get kickbacks from the developments ie a percentage of the housing it makes it ok for them to break there own rules , this is a form of discrimination and not at all a fair sysyem they run   

we will be fighting this all the way even if this means both my wife and i going to prison  we are not going to go away and be bullied by the council just because they dont like what we want to do and we will not comply with there enforcement notice so we really need all your help in supporting this petition its time to fight back  ,
