Hi all,
The BBC report on the successful outcome of Brig Oubridge's 13-year struggle to have his tipis and 'gypsy-style caravan' at Tipi Valley acknowledged as a 'lawful development' is at:
Given the enormous difficulties facing those, like Brig, who endeavour to gain permission for 'alternative' rural developments, this is clearly a significant victory. A spokesperson for Carmarthenshire Council is quoted as saying, 'The council is currently considering the decision and its implications for future action in this area' - but presumably the decision will be a boost to others outside Carmarthenshire who are involved in the long struggle for land reform. Does anyone have any further information about the implications of this ruling?
All the best,

Andy is the author of Stonehenge: Celebration and Subversion (Alternative Albion, 2004), described by SchNEWS as 'by far the best bit of modern British social history I've seen', and the editor of The Battle of the Beanfield (Enabler, 2005), described by Professor Ronald Hutton as 'probably the definitive work on its subject, something very rarely achieved in practice'.
