Pippa, 39, and James, 47, bought the park after it went up for sale for £1.5million in 2020.

But MailOnline reported the couple got into a year-long argument with neighbors over the proposed work at Bucklebury Farm Park in Berkshire.

The park’s petting zoo is said to have been a favorite of young Prince George.

His mother, Kate Middleton, would often take him there when visiting her parents’ home – Bucklebury Manor – a few miles away.

Pippa and James are said to have quickly built a covered seating area once they owned the park.

But the couple didn’t get planning permission and West Berkshire Council took notice.

They applied for a retrospective building permit, as well as permission to refurbish and extend an existing barn, build a new barn and a huge new storage building.

The couple also wanted to build new restrooms, build a 100-vehicle parking lot, and reroute a public footpath.

And a neighbor disagreed.

The local resident said the new footpath route was “prone to flooding,” which regularly turned the affected area into “a swamp.”

They said there was no concrete plan “to prevent potential conflict” between hikers and those visiting the park by car.

Earlier this year, BerkshireLive reported that locals were also concerned that Pippa and James would remove the park’s slides – which were hugely popular with children.

But the pair persisted in the brawl and have now been retrospectively granted permission to use the covered seating area.

They were also given the go-ahead to expand an existing ‘visitor stable’, build a ‘play stable’ and a huge new storage building.

The couple have also been given the go-ahead to build new loos and a parking lot for 100 vehicles.

Pippa and James live not far from the park in what is said to be a massive 30-bedroom mansion.

The £15million home sits on 150 acres of grounds leading to a river, complete with a walled garden and greenhouses.
