What do we do now about illegal building works that were required to be demolished under a Building Order? Previously we could prosecute for failure to comply with the Order and seek a S253 Order for demolition.
But S253 now only allows for the court to order supply of documents or information.
Does that leave the only option being to arrange the work ourselves then seek costs?
Is this a recognition that the court never had the resources to enforce a S253 order?
