If a local authority resorts to this kind of heavy-handed action, is there any way we can retaliate?

Not necessarily anything to do with music, but just to tie them up. There are HUNDREDS of statutory duties for an authority, and I can't believe that every one is squeaky clean. Where are they most vulnerable to an attack by a number of local ratepayers?

As an example, I do remember that when I was working for a utility, they had a stautory duty to maintain full maps - which they hadn't done for 10 years, to save costs. (So if the contractor accidentally digs up power lines, it may NOT be his fault)
