Tony Blair’s false start

  • Comment

Planning permission granted for work on the former PM’s Buckinghamshire home

Congratulations to architect Simon Templeton and his client Tony Blair who this week finally secured planning permission to revamp South Pavilion, the former Prime Minister’s £5.75 million stately home in Buckinghamshire.

Original plans included an endless swimming pool, but this was ditched after 13 months of wrangling with English Heritage.

A disgruntled neighbour said of the proposals: ‘It’s better than living next to a pop star. But only slightly.’
