It's all about access to equal rights. Article 8 of the human rights law says you have right to enjoy living peacefully in a home without disturbance of the public authorities. No prevention of you living in that home is allowed without very good reason. Public authorities are only allowed to intervene on a few circumstances. The one in your way is that the consideration of other laws must be taken into account. I/e the planning law. The planning process does not allow or even factor in consideration of access to the equal right of being able to continue living in ones own home undisturbed when disabled. It is said that public authorities should not discriminate against a group of people under article 14 in reference to another article (The one in question being 8). As As the process does not consider disability I think it is in contravention with those articles and needs to be changed. Perhaps someone with more knowledge/authority can confirm this and hopefully add weight to yours and Mr Millns cause. What I suggest is getting in touch with all the deputies that supported you when they were getting elected and discuss how the planning process can be changed. I know one or two of them want it edited for other reasons so you have a higher chance of success this way.
