You what?

He bought Winner’s £17.5m Holland Park mansion in 2014 but - according to this - his missis is having a few issues with redecoration, as she feels she’s being watched over and her decisions second-guessed by the previous owner’s ghost. So who you gonna call? No, not them. A Native American healer to cleanse the house of Winner. More here.

It looked like it might have ended when work began on Williams’s major property overhaul. The latest news is that Kensington & Chelsea council is now looking into whether planning conditions have been breached. Full story here.

One hundred and thirty of the 164 flats in the first stage of the redevelopment have already been sold off-plan, according to the Evening Standard, after an initial London-only marketing campaign. Does a London-only marketing campaign translate to London buyers, though, when studios start at half a million pounds? We live, after all, in a highly connected world. It will be interesting to see.

The Telegraph has the best coverage, including plans, of an upmarket neighbourly dispute over the Beckham’s modernisation proposals for their large Holland Park home. Surprisingly, it appears to be their plans for air-conditioning that’s proved the final straw, prompting a local resident to demand the council consider "all adverse impacts on living conditions from noise, vibration, dirt, pollution and dust from construction and from associated traffic, in addition to concerns about impacts on drainage, on appearance and landscape, on structural stability, and on historic buildings”. So, pretty much everything. More here.

In brief… two tenants complaining of a bad smell and blocked fire escapes in their top floor flat return home to find their belongings shifted. They’re told they need to leave because of a carbon monoxide leak that has made the accommodation unsafe. New tenants move in two days later. Almost £25,000 in fines are the result. More here.

The China Post points the spotlight on Principal Tower in Shoreditch and The Landau (CGI, pictured) in Fulham. There’s definitely no risk of a bubble, they say. However, at home...

Three floors and 16,000 square feet, all underneath a £20m Holland Park home owned by banker/investor/Conservative donor Edmund Lazarus. The plans - lodged with Kensington & Chelsea Council and due for a decision by the end of the year - would add an electric “car-stacker” system, catering/laundry facilities, a gym, cigar room, dance studio, wine cellar, sauna etc etc. The Standard estimates the cost of the work at around £10m.

Good news for Turnham Green. After speculation, it’s now official. Expect Piccadilly Line trains to stop at your local station. But not exactly soon. 2023 is the likely completion date for necessary works. Not so good news for Sutton. Criterian Capital have withdrawn plans for the rejuvenation of town cannabis factory Sutherland House, just days before a council meeting to discuss planning permission. Things look more positive in Mitcham, where residents have been holding digital images of proposed pre-fabs for the Clay Avenue area and smiling. However, in Earls Court, it transpires that the much-lauded (by the Mayor) plan to “regenerate” the space left by the planned demolition of the exhibition centre will contain zero, that’s zero, affordable homes.
