John Kean, of Pennerley, in Shropshire, appealed to the Planning Inspectorate after getting demands for failing to pay a Community Infrastructure Levy after he got planning permission for three dwellings and three workshop buildings.

But Ken McEntee, who was appointed by the Secretary of State for Levelling Up, Housing and Communities, to decide the case, has ruled that the council did nothing wrong in sending demands by email instead of using the post.

Planning permission for the site at Pennerley Dingle Cottages, Tankerville Farm, Pennerley, was granted on February 2, 2017.

And Mr McEntee heard that Mr Kean was sent a liability notice on September 21, 2017 and a demand notice on February 11, 2022.
