Councillors will visit the Pembrokeshire roundhouse before deciding whether to grant retrospective plannning permission.
The low impact roundhouse is home to Charlie, Megan and their son Eli. Charlie built the home himself, moving just before baby Eli was born.
Unfortunately, Charlie built the home without permission, later applying for retrospective planning. But Pembrokshire County Council decided the home should be demolished and Charlie, Megan and their baby should go back to their damp caravan.
They have been fighting to keep their sustainable home ever since.
On 1st August 2013 Pembrokeshire County Council's issued an enforcement saying the property must be demolished within 2 months because, "benefits of the development did not outweigh the harm to the character and appearance of the countryside."
This update has come since the planning committees meeting on June 24th, where they were discussing the retrospective planning permission. The recommendation document given to the committee read: "It is recommended that the application be REFUSED... The dwelling will be dismantled and removed. This would not be a difficult task since it has been built predominantly from natural materials."
The councillors will view the property in July.
