UPDATE 24th June 2014:

The BBC's Aled Scourfield at the Pembrokshire Council meeting has tweeted:

"Pembs Councillors vote for a site visit before deciding on the future of Glandwr roundhouse"

This is what Charlie and Megan were hoping for; bring the councillors out of their office face-to-face with one of the most beautiful and environmentally friendly homes on the planet. This gives them the opportunity to show the councillors what it means to live naturally growing their own food and taking care of their own needs sustainably. The site visit will take place on the 23rd July. Their application will go before the committee again the following week on the 29th July. 

UPDATE 31st March 2015:

The BBC's Aled Scourfield at the Pembrokshire Council meeting has tweeted:

"Pembs Councillors vote for a site visit before deciding on the future of Glandwr roundhouse"

UPDATE 31st March 2015:

The appeal date has been set for Tuesday May 19th at the Hermon Community Resource Centre. Charlie & Megan welcome your support on the day. The parcels (right) contain copies of the letters of support from our readers and beyond. If you wrote to Pembrokeshire County Council then your letter is in this collection with thousands of others in support of their appeal.

UPDATE 14th July 2015:

SAVED

Charlie and Meg's home has been granted retrospective planning permission. A plea to take into account the cultural value of the roundhouse and meeting strict One Planet Development policy (see below) guidelines was among the points raised at the appeal on March 31st. Every aspect of their lifestyle was scrutinised by planning inspector Kay Sheffield who had invited their friends, neighbours and supporters to give their views on the project. The meeting was followed by a visit to the roundhouse so Kay could see the property for herself. All things considered Kay used her authority to overturn Pembrokeshire's rejection of Charlie and Megan's retrospective planning permission.
