Appalling that such hard work should go to waste

WE are writing in support of Dinah and Stig Mason.

It seems appalling that all the hard work and effort they have put in to transform a dying orchard into a productive piece of land should go to waste. They are obviously doing a really good job and what damage would it do to allow them to make a more permanent residence there?

It would seem to me better than them living in a housing estate somewhere and being unable to feed themselves and having to buy loads of junk food and claim benefits.

We understand that the council need to find places to build houses and if the local village is not objecting, then where is the problem?
