Council Leasehold Covenant - Garden as a Garden

Hello, We live in the ground floor flat of four converted flats, we have quite a large private garden to the rear have applied for planning permission to create a small single storey rear extension to our property. We have just received a letter back from the Council as freeholder / landlord of the property i.e. we have a leasehold from the council. They are advising in addition to planning permission we also need permission from the landlord. If permission is agreed they are advising we need to enter into a deed of variation to our lease(£360) as our lease has a covenant which states that: If the flat has a garden to use it only for the purposes of a garden and to keep the same in neat and tidy condition. To release this covenant they are advising we would need them to value the land(£667), once the land has been valued we would be advised of the cost. Does anybody have any experience of this? How will they value the land? How much will it be? Thanks, Simon
