The famous British musician Ed Sheeran lost the fight with a neighbor who expanded his domain. The singer has already bought several houses in Suffolk County and practically built his own mini-village, called "Sheeranville", reports The Sun.
Sheeran was extremely outraged to learn of plans by another resident of the area, Tony Robinson, to expand the garden by about 50 meters at the expense of free pasture.
In a letter of objection to the Suffolk Council on behalf of the musician, Paul Smith, director of urban planning at Middleton, Apex Planning Consultants, noted that such an artificial expansion was unreasonable and would damage the unique nature and landscape of the surrounding area. The planners disagreed and approved Robinson's further construction work. He was given the right to complete the expansion over the next three years, but without the installation of external lighting systems.
In 2019, Sheeran bought the last home for Sheeranville for £ 875,000 (approximately $ 1 million 88,000) from neighbor Sharon Jest, who opposed the ongoing construction. In 2018, she announced that the singer's application for the construction of a 32-foot (9.7 meters) chapel on an area of 6.5 hectares was the last straw.
