Options to release a restrictive covenant (Housing Act 1985 section 610?)

Hi folks

Does anyone have any experience of using Housing Act 1985 section 610 to have a restrictive covenant removed, thereby allowing a house to be converted to flats?

Thanks in advance

Neil

For example if you put up a 6ft fence and the covenant was found to prohibit this, eventually you would have the costs of removing the fence and legal costs. Similarly if you built Telecom Tower on top of your house. So what is the cost of the other thing and the cost of undoing the other thing?
