I'm not sure what the point of the word "Disabled" in the subject line or the news item is.
My reading of the Wiltshire Times article - especially his weasel words about being "'largely unaware' of the fact that planning permission was required" - suggests that he should have known (and probably did know) that he was pushing his luck. Having exhausted the official channels available he's now trying a bit of manipulative PR in a last-ditch attempt to escape the consequences of his action.
Anger and resistance is not just futile, it's inappropriate. The guy broke planning regulations and had the attempt to get retrospective permission rejected after due process had been followed, all the way to the High Court. He was in the wrong and his disability is totally irrelevant.
