Ex-PM David Cameron accused of harming neighbours' human rights over swimming pool plans

DAVID Cameron has been accused of harming his neighbours’ human rights over plans for a swimming pool.

The former PM’s proposal will lower the tone of the exclusive area, say residents, who fear it will ruin their quality of life.


His neighbours, Katherine and Mark Smith, are leading objections to the 14m heated pool and pump room.

In a letter to planners, the couple complained under the Human Rights Act, saying: “A person has the right to peaceful enjoyment of all their possessions, which includes the home and other land.”

They added: “As an immediate neighbour to the site of the proposed development, we are of the view it will have a serious negative impact on our standard of living. The development erodes the natural beauty of the area and the countryside.”

One local had already argued he will make his Cotswolds mansion look like a cut-price Benidorm hotel.

Mr Cameron, 54, lives at the £1.5million Cotswolds farmhouse with his wife Samantha, 49, and their son and two daughters.

Planners will rule on the £50,000 proposal in the next few weeks.

Mr Cameron – mocked for telling of his love for “chillaxing” – is thought to be installing the pool to keep fit.

If approved it will compliment Mr Cameron’s £25k shepherds hut, which he installed to write his memoirs in 2017.

The luxury hut features a wood-burning stove and can be moved on wheels, making it an ideal place to warm up after a swim.
