    I don't have that dish but I do and still have a 1.2m dish which my local dealer sold me, must be 28 years ago. When I purchased it old Ken Logan the shop owner was a local council officer on the planning dept said that I wouldn't have any problems with the planning permission, yes no problem.
    Sadly he passed away a number of years ago, he was an RAF electrician on Radar in the WWII so he knew a thing or two.

    My 1m Lenson Heath dish is still going strong after 25 years+. They don't build them like that any more. It's moved house with me around 5 times and reluctant to 'upgrade' it to a bigger dish. Started with an Amstrad SRD200 and now running a VU Duo2, with a few receivers and other boxes in between.

    I bought a couple of these over the years.

    I remember carrying 1 from a mates house to mine after I bought it off him, throwing it over my shoulder and holding onto the lnb arm (that was a long walk) lol.

    I picked another up about 10 years ago with a polar mount (never got around to installing it, as I bought a CM 1.2 not long after), pretty sure the dish face is behind the shed, and the polar mount is at the back of the shed hidden away somewhere.

    Using mine fixed at 28e now. My first dish also 25+ years! A grand servant! Unfortunately cannot get a strong enough signal from all transponders at 28E so might have to swap it for one of those oblique looking sly dishes!
