David and Victoria Beckham have won their planning disagreement for developments at their Cotswolds home, reports have said.
The couple had initially encountered resistance from neighbours after putting in an application to build a security gatehouse on their grounds which neighbour had claimed would ‘ruin the ambience’.
As well as the gatehouse, the family are planning to add a wine cellar to their mansion and plans are now waiting for approval by officials.
The Sun Online reports that the Beckhams’ planning application states: ‘The proposed use of the outbuilding is solely in association with the main dwelling house.
‘It will serve as a gatehouse to improve security for the occupants of the property.
‘The proposed development includes a new basement cellar constructed beneath the extension to the existing garage outbuilding with a linked walkway.
‘The basement cellar beneath is for storage of wine and the proposed use of the outbuilding is solely in association with the main dwelling house, it will improve security for the occupants of the property.
‘The proposed [garage] extension adds three new bays to the existing garage outbuilding, increasing the building from four bays to seven.’
A decision on whether the couple can go ahead with the works is expected to be made in the next few weeks now the objection has been withdrawn.
The couple have been spending lockdown at their home in the Cotswolds with most of their children – Romeo, 17, Cruz, 15 and eight-year-old Harper.
Their eldest son Brooklyn ended up staying in the USA with his girlfriend Nicola Peltz after lockdown meant he was unable to fly back home.
Earlier reports had also suggested that the couple were planning to build an ‘escape tunnel’ to help protect them against burglars.
Their country house was the target of two break-in attempts in 2018 though no-one from the family was in the home at the time and it is thought that the burglars were chased away by seven security guards and two attack dogs,
Metro.co.uk has contacted reps for the family for comment.
