Sevenoaks DC has been ordered by the high court to stop demolition of a restored oast house, reports the Daily Telegraph (p17).

Contractors were sent in by the council on Monday to start dismantling the 258 year old building, but the owners have won a high court bid to stop the demolition until the case has been heard in full by the high court.

The former owner has taken the case to the appeal court, house of lords and European court of human rights. Sevenoaks issued an enforcement order after restoration work had been started, ordering that the building be returned to a derelict state.
