The actor’s plans for expansion have irked his neighbours. He shouldn’t worry though
Benedict Cumberbatch has angered neighbours by applying for planning permission to erect a supershed at the back of his north London property. Cumberbatch and his family are yet to move in, but locals have accused him of “over-developing”, saying giant sheds should not be built in conservation areas.
All I can say is that it’s a cruel, unusual and perhaps foolhardy person who dares to come between a man and his giant shed. Indeed, in recent times, supersheds have become status objects for men and women alike. Who knows what Cumberbatch was planning – office space, a creative haven, perchance a beanbag-strewn zen-den for the kids?
