    It is never inevitable that there will be a hearing, especially if this is CEL. Which PPC?

    If and when you have a letter from your local court, that will tell you the date by which to exchange WS and evidence, and sometimes PPCs discontinue at that stage. No hearing is unstoppable/inevitable, you can see this off earlier but do everything required of you, don't be the one to blink!

    Honestly, I do not expect CEL to turn up or proceed with many hearings. I reckon they are trying to flush out people who will panic and pay. They have history for discontinuing just before a hearing (lots of times, last year) and then this year they've been staying cases for a long time, then only now have they been picking up DQ stage.

    I don't believe that means they have changed their stance and fully expect discontinuances later on with all these well-defended cases.

    If CEL have form for late discontinuations, is it worth filing for a counter claim for costs, to force them to turn up / automatically lose?

    Too late to counter claim now, and costs are not a 'counter-claim' in themselves.

    Costs can be claimed by writing a letter to the Judge immediately after discontinuance, so this OP can do that if and when it happens, later.
