Sir Alex Ferguson ramps up row with neighbours over three-storey mansion plans


SIR Alex Ferguson has ramped up his dispute with neighbours over a proposed new build.

The Man United legend, 78, helped knock back their plans for a three-storey mansion last year.

It has been resubmitted with changes which Sir Alex said go “some way to reducing the building’s prominence”.

But he said it was not enough as the central section is even higher.

Sir Alex, who retired from football in 2013, said its “visual mass and bulk” was out of character for his neighbourhood in Wilmslow, Cheshire.

He is also worried about privacy and flooding over a loss of trees.

“The loss of trees is likely to have a significant impact on the character of the area and the existing privacy standards afforded” to his home.

The applicant’s agents said changes were needed “given the high-profile objection and subsequent refusal” of the proposal.

The letter claims the initial reason for refusal “has yet to be adequately addressed” and that “insufficient level of detail” has been provided on its impacts to the surroundings.

It goes on: “Even at an outline stage, to be able to fully assess the impacts of the proposal and we therefore consider that the application should be refused accordingly.”

Cheshire East Council is expected to make a decision next month.
