My question is should the condition now be lifted and/or a TPO be put in
but that begs the question why? The property is a farm house, some three
from the nearest highway and is overlooked some two miles away by another
farmhouse. Amenity can mean many things, but visual amenity is not an issue
as there isn't any (well except for the property owners)...

Off-hand Paul, I'd say the TO is trying to be accommodating while avoiding
himself the faff of serving a TPO and possibly dealing with your objections.
My experience is that a Planner wouldn't bother trying to enforce a Condition
after that length of time. I have asked various Planners about such things on
numerous occasions; I was once told by a Planner that he wouldn't attempt to
pursue a prosecution if the Condition was a decade old, only for him to get
uppity about an even older one a while after that. Mind you I think a Member
was getting at him....
I'd try and avoid backing a Planner into a corner, negotiation is probably
cheaper and less hassle.
