Hobbit-home’ demolition fears

Jul 19 2007

THE owners of a Hobbit-style wood and earth home threatened with demolition for years failed in another bid to save it yesterday.

The ecologically friendly, solar-powered Round House at Brithdir Mawr near Newport, Pembrokeshire, has been the subject of legal wrangling since it was built without planning permission 10 years ago for £3,000.

Pembrokeshire Council had taken court action to secure its removal but this was halted so that its retention could be re-examined against the framework of a recently adopted low impact development policy.

Over the years, owners Tony Wrench and his partner Jane Faith have applied for retrospective planning permission, been fined and been warned they face imprisonment. The Round House now appears to face demolition once again after members of the authority’s national park development management committee said it could not be saved under the low impact development policy.
