David and Victoria Beckham’s noise hell with 10 hours of building work a day at £31m home after they lose planning row

DAVID and Victoria Beckham are facing a noise hell at their £31million London mansion after losing a planning row with their neighbour.

The couple have got months of construction work noise to deal with after a neighbour’s renovations that they'd tried to block have already started. 

The Beckhams are now surrounded by builders at their home in London.

One of their neighbours near their luxury house in West London has put up scaffolding in preparation for their alterations, which the A-listers complained would invade their privacy.

They were worried that their neighbour's architect was creating a whole new patio area including a balcony on the first floor, which may have looked out into their back garden.

They were also concerned that a new large roof light would be seen from their house and spoil their ambience.  

In April, David and Victoria won the first battle against the plans – with the application being refused after strong complaints from the couple.

But the neighbour resubmitted new plans which were approved on 17 June. 

David, Victoria and their four children now face 10 hours-a-day of construction after a council officer’s report gave permission for the builders to work Monday to Friday, 8am to 6pm. 

A senior planning officer has since recommended the neighbours meet to discuss their issues.

They said: "I encourage you to discuss your proposals with all neighbours with a boundary with your site, as we will advise them of any application."
