John Terry in battle with neighbours over plans to build pool party area at £4.35m Surrey mansion

EX-England captain John Terry is battling neighbours over plans to build a pool party area at his £4.35million Surrey mansion.

He is eyeing up an outdoor party space complete with covered seating and a poolside bar, and to replace the current triple garage to house his flash cars. 

The Aston Villa deputy boss, 39, even wants to add staff quarters to the seven-bedroom 18th century house he moved into with his wife Toni, 38, in July last year.

But disgruntled neighbours are eager to spike the plans.

Imogen Jamieson accused Terry of “inappropriate and excessive development particularly with the additional proposed outdoor seating area.”

She wrote to Guildford Council’s planning officer on behalf of Ockham Parish Council.

She said: “The nature of swimming pool activity with a covered outdoor seating with a bar means there are likely to be noise nuisance issues preventing residents from having peaceful enjoyment of their properties.

“The provision of a heating source also enables this space to be used year round which would provide the neighbours with no respite from noise nuisance throughout the year.

“Additionally, the size of this structure leads to further concerns of development creep.”

She added that the couple have already “significantly altered and increased” their house.

Terry’s application claims that neighbours’ privacy will not be infringed upon.

It says: “The replacement garage and covered outdoor seating area are more than 25 metres from the nearest neighbouring houses to the south-east.

“There are no windows proposed in the rear or side elevations of the garage and thus there would be no overlooking or loss of privacy to the neighbouring properties.”

Terry wants to replace the current garage with a larger one to house his car collection, which includes a Ferrari 275 GTB and a £2 million Enzo.

The house is set in eight acres of land, just a stone’s throw away from his old club Chelsea’s training ground in Cobham, Surrey.

It has a library, stables, swimming pool and tennis court, yet Terry and wife Toni are still keen on extending it more.

It is Terry’s fifth property in the area after having involvement with four others on the nearby Crown Estate in Oxshott, one of Britain’s most expensive areas to live.

The garage will be 111 metres squared with 460 metres of volume.

He has also been spotted cycling recently, and the plans say it would also be home to bikes

In February, Terry was given the green light to replace his conservatory with a gym and a lounge.
