report that the makers of The Hobbit films are about to lose their permission to film in Hobbiton. Their resource consent meant that filming was supposed to be completed by the end of April but filming of the movies has been delayed by a number of factors. The company will now have to reapply for new permission to film. Papers released show that so far $1.4 million has been spent building new hobbit holes, the Green Dragon Inn and a new fake tree.
