Vroom! Vroom! Lewis Hamilton on collision course with neighbours
The six times Formula 1 world champion is facing objections to a planning application he has submitted to renovate his £18 million Kensington mansion from owners of a neighbouring enclave of painters’ studios, one of which is owned by David Hockney
Hamilton wants to extend the back of the six-bedroom Victorian mansion he bought three years ago as well as build a porch and rebuild a summer house in the 200ft garden.
The artists have objected saying “As working artists who depend on natural daylight our working and living conditions would be seriously disturbed by the plan”.
“It is also a concern that [the] studios continue to be attractive to individual artists, or art institutions, and this plan diminishes their appeal. Light is an essential condition of art.”
