Not quite sure where the notion of the Skinners going to the High Court comes from, as the front page doesn't include any such suggestion.

However, if they did go to the High Court to seek what is known as a Section 289 challenge, that challenge would be against the Inspector's decision, not against the Council. The respective planning merits of the matter couldn't be considered as part of that challenge, only whether in reaching the decision that he/she did, the Inspector either took into account something that shouldn't have been taken into account, or that something that should have been taken into account wasn't.

Just like with the enforcement appeal, a High Court challenge would be a complete waste of time and money. The first Inspector (who dismissed the initial planning appeal) carefully considered all the arguments for and against the retention of the panels, and inevitably the second Inspector has revisited all of those arguments and reached the same conclusion. High Court challenges do succeed sometimes, I've been part of numerous such challenges, but in this case it would be utterly pointless to go down such a route.

On a more sensible note, it's good to see that the Skinners recognise that they now have to negotiate with the Council. Waving a letter from Boris isn't going to help though, and sadly I can envisage a situation where the time period for compliance with the enforcement notice expires but the panels are still in place, which would then force the Council to consider prosecuting the Skinners, which could result in a maximum fine of 20,000 but would result in the very least in them receiving a criminal conviction.

Not a nice state of affairs, all so unnecessary, but some people just don't want to play ball...
