Jagger Loses Redevelopment Battle
Rocker Mick Jagger and his girlfriend L'Wren Scott have lost a battle with their neighbours over the redevelopment of their Grade II listed 17th century mansion. The Rolling Stone planned to chop down four magnolia trees at the $20 million (GBP10 million) estate to make way for a subterranean 28 foot by 12 foot swimming pool. But the proposals infuriated the neighbours of the property in Chelsea, West London who bombarded the council with letters of protest and a petition and Jagger has been forced to relocate the pool to another site in the garden. Jagger hired a team of designers and architects to make the down-at-heel property suitable for a millionaire rock star complete with His and Her dressing rooms, a massive wine cellar and spacious staff accommodation.
