Steffan Messenger of Farming Today (BBC Radio 4) visits Pembrokeshire and talks to Glen Peters at Ty Solar.  During the programme they discuss the financial and logistical challenges of developing affordable housing within existing planning laws and visit the building site of a new development. With much of the building materials sourced locally and constructed by firms within the area this is a three-fold approach to address energy use in homes, the disparity between wages and property prices, and a lack of skilled local labour.
