    Default Hobbit home destroyed

    Hobbit home destroyed



    A young couple have been left heartbroken after planners ordered their unique ‘hobbit home’ to be bulldozed, effectively leaving them homeless.

    Charlie Hague and Megan Williams, both 25, built the roundhouse from scratch with their own hands, using only natural materials.

    But the couple lost their appeal today against a planning enforcement notice telling them to tear their pride and joy home down.

    Charlie and Megan, who have a one-year-old son Eli, built the house on private land in Glandwr, North Pembrokeshire, UK, last summer.

    Locals nicknamed it the hobbit home, although most people did not even know it was there because it is so secluded.

    But Pembrokeshire County Council ordered the couple to demolish their home because it was built without planning permission.

    Charlie and Megan, who live a self-sufficient lifestyle, fought the decision claiming it had a low impact on the environment because of its unique construction.

    Charlie, a sculptor and woodworker, said: ‘We built this house to provide our son with a healthy environment to grow up in.

    Black Blade: Government is a purely evil parasite. Just a fact of life. Today most people can't live and let live and that goes especially for those who aren't generating a revenue stream for government tax collectors and businesses as "consumers" living a self-sufficient lifestyle. Makes it a bit difficult for those of us who hope to eventually "Go Galt" and drop off the grid.

    Yeah governments prove every day that they don't care one iota for their subjects, er.. citizens. That's a shame when people who aren't hurting anyone get squashed by the big jackboot of beauracratic B.S.
    Enforcement, NOT Amnesty!!!!!!
