Save Mark Mob’s home from the complaining neighbours. Please enter positive comments to Bath Council…

This is the house and home of Mark from the Mob who together with his family and many friends have built this building out of mostly recycled and locally sourced materials.

Mark has done this conversion to an (originally) ugly old building without planning permission and is now seeking retrospective planning approval. The neighbours who live several hundred metres away down the hill have got quite vitriolic with their comments in opposition to Mark’s home in Temple Cloud near Bristol.

Mark has eight days left to try and get as many positive comments added to the planning website.

If you have already done so thank you so much and Mark really appreciates it but if you have not could you please take a look and add some comments at;

And then enter reference 12/03092/FUL into the SEARCH box

Get on ‘The Quarry’ address link and then you can go on the link that states ‘Comments are invited on this application’ and then you are there on the page to enter comments…

You do not have to live in the area to make a comment. In fact you do not even have to know Mark personally.

If you feel that the old building which has been restored in an ethical and environmentally sound way is a good idea then please go onto this council website and put across your points in how ever many words you wish to write. It should only take a few minutes.

It would be a shame to knock the house down as it promises to be a 21st century equivalent to Dial House in North Weald Essex. Dial House is the building that housed Crass all those years ago, and still houses two of the ex members of Crass today.

Please support Mark’s house! More pictures of the house (at the time almost finished) here;

Thank you very much to anyone making a positive comment to the council. Please ensure comments are kept ‘clean’ if you get my gist!

    please stop this quarrel, to my modest opinion i’d suggest the neighbours to take care about the sand tinged shafts and columns entering the town..covering with trees and spontaneous shrubs the best way possible, those romans are crazy. alberto

    Unfortunately, I was unable to gain access using the reference number on two separate occasions. What was the result?

    I have impeachable qualifications from Kew Gardens on native flora and environmental impact- I’ve just seen this- any help I can give in terms of environmental impact please get in touch. I’m getting laid off from work (for being a trade unionist) so I’ve got the time to help. Anything you can think of, fine.
