The pop megastar has applied to his local council, the Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead, for permission to bulldoze a huge garage block so he can replace it with a gallery displaying his extensive art collection.
Woodside Gallery, as it will be known, will comprise a main gallery connected by a first-floor glazed link to an archive building.
According to the planning application design statement: 'Both buildings will have controlled environmental conditions to suit their specific needs.
'The project comprises two external faces. The first is a traditional one, which is in keeping with the existing building, while the second has a modern approach, whose use of materials and design still allow it to blend in with surroundings.'
The Royal Borough of Windsor and Maidenhead said it was unlikely to refuse planning permission.
A friend of Elton told the Sun: 'Elton has many works of art, from the 18th century to the modern day, and an incredibly valuable collection of over 3,000 photos.
'He spends most of his time in Windsor now, so he's decided to gather them in one place so he can enjoy them.'
