You will be unable to exercise this option as the covenant runs with the land itself, and not the owner. This basically means that it will be in force to whoever owns the property and this will be indefinitely - not for the 20 years you have referred to above.
If you are still adament on proceeding, you should 1) obtain permission from the local council and 2) obtain an adequate insurance policy as this is a breach of covenant
I hope this helps and please do let me know if you have any further questions.
The covenant is generally enforceable between the original contracting parties so the transferee may still have a say so.
I would consider an application for this to be removed to the Lands Tribunal (please note the process is relatively lengthy!) - https://www.gov.uk/appeal-upper-tribunal-lands
I hope this helps and please do let me know if I can assist with anything else.
