Ed Sheeran gets permission to build giant garage

Suffolk singer Ed Sheeran has won an appeal to build a big new garage at his home.

The songwriter wants to build a four-bay cart lodge garage with extra parking at his 16th Century Listed building home near Framlingham in Suffolk.

The local parish council had approved the plans but they were rejected by Suffolk Coastal Council on grounds that they would have an "adverse impact on the character and appearance of the countryside."

The "Castle on a Hill" singer appealed against the decision on the grounds that an original cart lodge on the site had been demolished.

The Planning Inspectorate has now granted planning permission.

The new building is 5.7 metres (18.7 ft) high and would incorporate an enclosed garage and three open fronted cart lodges along with a ground floor storage room and toilet. There were also four car parking spaces outside the building.

The property already has a number of out buildings including a two-storey barn, a modern tree house, a swimming pool and a 'pod' along with decking and a jacuzzi.

There is also planning permission for an orangery.
