Moss housing plans infuriate neighbors
British supermodel Kate Moss has infuriated
her new neighbors with plans to build a basement conversion - as
residents are convinced it will cause flooding in the area.
The newly married beauty has moved to an $11
million mansion in the affluent area of Highgate, north London with
her husband, The Kills rocker Jamie Hince.
Moss has already angered neighbors by placing
a satellite dish and CCTV cameras on the exterior of the home - and
now she's causing more controversy with plans to build a gym and
steam room below ground level.
The proposals have infuriated local
councillor Maya de Souza, who is concerned that if Moss' plans are
approved, other homes in the vicinity will suffer.

other residents. I'll be asking for proper reports on groundwater

are not satisfactory I'd like to see the application

should have bought a modern house, not a Grade II-listed
