'Don't pay taxes for this' Holly Willoughby risks angering neighbours with home renovation
Holly Willoughby lives in a £2.8 million home in the leafy suburb of Barnes and was given the green light for an extension. She and her husband Daniel Baldwin had been wanting to add a first-floor side and front extension, window and door alterations and a side dormer roof extension at their mansion for over a year.Her neighbours have been complaining about her planning applications over the years, with them saying there will be disruption to the roads as well as noise from the building works.Since buying the home in 2011, she has gone through many setbacks with applications and disgruntled neighbours.According to Daily Mail's Richard Eden, planners have approved her plans for a first-floor extension.Last year, neighbours complained about the disruptions that would be caused due to the presenter's refurbishment plans.As reported by the aforementioned publication, one neighbour, Liliana Velez, said: "Having the noise all week all day for so many months is not the standard of living in such an expensive area to live."I do not pay taxes to get this level of disruption, it is not quality of life."Another local, Julie Halstead, said: "The property of Holly Willoughby has already been extended, I feel that further development as per the proposal, would severely impact the character and nature of this part of the road."A neighbour also sent a letter to the council about it, with The Sun reporting the letter saying: "My workspace is right by the project and having the noise all day and all week for so many months is not the standard of living in such an expensive area to live."I don't pay taxes to get this level of disruption, it is not quality of life.
