Administration fees are not planning obligations

It is now common practice for developers to simply cite the Oxfordshire County Council v Secretary of State for Communities and Local Government and others ([2015] EWHC 186 (Admin)) case as providing justification as to why Councils’ / County Councils’ monitoring / administration fees are not justified and, therefore, should not be paid. However, I believe that this blanket approach is incorrect.
