A public inquiry into one of the longest-running planning disputes in Wales reopened this week. The row centres over Tipi Valley in Carmarthenshire, an "eco-community" covering almost 65ha. Resident Brig Oubridge first applied for a retrospective lawful use certificate for a caravan and three tents in 1993. His application was refused, but the decision was overturned.
