Celebrity cou­ple look­ing to ex­tend

Surrey Advertiser - - Front Page -

CH­ERYL Cole and boyfriend Liam Payne have sub­mit­ted plans to more than dou­ble the size of their al­ready huge man­sion in Sur­rey.

This will be the sec­ond time the pair (pic­tured above) have tried to con­vince Guild­ford Bor­ough Coun­cil to ex­tend the multi-mil­lion pound house this year. In June, the lo­cal author­ity re­fused to let the cou­ple build a su­per garage – an ob­vi­ous ne­ces­sity to house their fleet of six cars worth £1 mil­lion.

How­ever, it seems the re­fusal made on the ba­sis that de­vel­op­ment will be ‘harm­ful to the green belt’ has not phased the singers.

This time the celebrity pair are try­ing their luck with an even more am­bi­tious plan.

Fresh de­signs sub­mit­ted on Au­gust 10 in­clude a large in­door swim­ming pool, spa­cious guest house, gi­gan­tic garage and a pas­sage­way link­ing the new build­ings to the cur­rent house.

If the plan goes ahead, the man­sion will be more than dou­ble in size. Ac­cord­ing to the plan­ning state­ment it will ‘amount to an 80% in­crease’, to be pre­cise.

For­mer One Di­rec­tion mem­ber turned soloist, Liam, bought the £5.1m man­sion in March 2015.

Since the pur­chase, Ch­eryl and Liam have sub­mit­ted a to­tal of six ap­pli­ca­tions to ex­tend the prop­erty, in­clud­ing the cur­rent plan.

All of which, apart from the most re­cent plan to build the su­per garage, have been per­mit­ted.

These in­clude a sin­gle storey ex­ten­sion in May 2015, which came with an in­door pool com­plete with a plant area, jacuzzi, sauna, rock­ery and chang­ing area.

How­ever, months later the cou­ple amended the plans to in­clude a base­ment to house a fit­ness suite and games room. De­spite the plans be­ing sub­mit­ted more than two years ago, build­ing work still has not be­gun.

If the lat­est ap­pli­ca­tion goes ahead, a path­way will join the pre­vi­ously pro­posed in­door swim­ming pool, gym and games area to a huge dou­ble garage and en­trance hall. A guest room with five sec­tions to the bot­tom left of the house could also be built.
