TV star Martin Clunes is battling plans for a permanent traveller site next door to his farm.
Neighbours Theo Langton and Ruth McGill have lived in a mobile home on their land for around 25 年.
He has drafted in planning experts Terence O’Rourke to fight the proposals.
In a letter to council chiefs, the firm states the plans are “wholly unsuitable” and “inappropriate”.
The letter also points out the site has no “basic services, 如 electricity, water or sewage”.

Neighbours Diane and Robert Clarke also argue the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty near Beaminster, 赛特, is “unsuitable for a travellers site”.
Artists Theo, 52, and Ruth, 47, moved there in 1997, have been fighting to stay since 2007 and in breach of planning rules since 2020.
The couple want to increase their two caravans to a further “touring caravan and very large mobile home”.
Theo said: “It’s a pitch for our family, that’s it. We’ve no idea what the problem is.”
Ruth labelled Clunes “landed and loaded”.
她补充说: “We have a cordial relationship with them. They just don’t want to live next to a traveller site.”
Clunes and his wife, Philippa Braithwaite, 58, bought the 130-acre working farm in 2007. He was approached for comment.
