Football legend David Beckham has been slammed by a neighbor over his plans for a giant greenhouse and allotment garden.
Becks has received planning permission for a greenhouse and raised vegetable garden so he and his wife Victoria can grow their own fruit and vegetables.
And he has now asked for planning permission to build another road into his Cotswolds area while the greenhouse is being built.
But a neighbor objected.
She told West Oxfordshire County Council: “Hello, I am opposed because it is an unnecessary use of material. There is already an access road to the property. So what’s the point of laying another road just to build a fancy greenhouse? That seems pointless and a waste of resources.”
And he has asked planners if he can build a new access road to connect his rural retreat to an existing dirt track leading from the original road to his home.
He wants to divert construction traffic over the new route and has asked West Oxfordshire County Council for permission to build a 250m road.
A planning application to the local council stated: “This homeowner application requests planning permission for the establishment of a vegetable garden with raised beds together with a traditional greenhouse.”
“The proposed kitchen garden is laid out in a formal style, with raised beds arranged symmetrically around a central path.
“The greenhouse is traditional in style and faces south, overlooking the vegetable garden framed by fruit trees and set against a backdrop of a formal hedge and an established mixed native hedge.”
The Sun has reached out to a Beckham representative for comment.
It certainly isn’t the first time Posh and Becks have been involved in a scheduling dispute with their neighbors.
In 2020, the power couple got into a fight with one of their London acquaintances – the City Council even suggested they meet to sort out their differences.
David and Victoria won the battle against the neighbor who bought property near their posh £31m townhouse in west London and came up with plans for a refurbishment including drastic internal conversions, a slate roof with skylight and an all-new exterior .
The request was rejected after fierce complaints from the famous couple – but the neighbor didn’t give up and once again put further plans to the council.
The celebrities were concerned that the first-floor neighbor’s architect would create an all-new patio area including a balcony that might overlook their back garden.
They also worried that a new large roof light could be visible from their home and spoil their ambiance.
The neighbor then sought advice in advance from the city administration and a senior planning officer.
In a setback for the Beckhams, the council recommended approval of the new plans, but also suggested mediation.
They said: “I encourage you to discuss your proposals with any neighbors who border your property as we will notify them of any application. The proposed rear terrace would not have a view of the back.”
“It also seems likely that this would not allow views of the barn plots on either side… Incidentally, there are no concerns about the impact of the proposal on the living conditions of neighboring residents in terms of light, sense of seclusion and noise or privacy.”
