I am happy to report that the government has bowed to pressure from this blog and cracked down on hard standing. From an article in the current issue of The Garden (which happened to be in my dentist's waiting room), I learn that, from October, planning permission will have to be sought by anyone intending to put down non-porous surfacing in front of their house. It will cost about £150, involve lots of form-filling and take at least two months, so the expectation is that this measure will deter the kind of wholesale garden vandalism I lamented. There you go - the power of the blog.
