Permission denied!

In spite of the car in the way, Kevin and Jonathan were all set to start work, when suddenly an inspector appeared. He said Kevin didn't have a permit, and must stop at once.

This was the first time Kevin had heard about the need for a permit. Apparently a permit costing 50 must be obtained, plus insurance indemnifying the Council for 5 million.

If this is going to apply to all sculpture in the open, then the likelihood of any more tree sculpture in the Avenues seems remote.

What a shame, if that happened!
