About a month ago or so
Expert:  Ash replied 11 months ago.

Ok - then if you have been to the Regulators then all you can do is a Judicial Review.

This is where a High Court Judge considers the decision of the board and decides whether its legal and reasonable.

The Judge will either agree with the decision or send it back to them to re-consider.

You would need a Solicitor as this is quite a specialist procedure, open to public bodies.

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
