In order to satisfy our current Planning Permission, all structures are temporary, nevertheless they are designed for year-round use. When our current temporary permission expires in 2011, we aim to gain permission to construct a low impact, low cost permanent Environmental Education Centre, based on the locally indigenous round houses using reclaimed, and natural local materials. As well as a classroom/workshop space, this will be a year-round resource for the local community.
