Jeremy Clarkson luxury home plan set for approval

Jeremy Clarkson Jeremy Clarkson originally applied for planning permission in 2010

Jeremy Clarkson is set to receive planning permission to build a luxury six-bedroom house in the Cotswolds.

The Top Gear presenter intends to call the farmhouse conversion near Chipping Norton, Oxfordshire "Diddly Squat Farm".

West Oxfordshire District Council confirmed no objections had been received during consultation over the scheme recommended for approval.

An outdoor swimming pool and tennis courts are included in the plans.

Planning permission was granted to demolish Curdle Hill Farm in Chadlington and replace it with a new house and a number of converted barns in March 2010.

The permission lapsed earlier this year and the new application is the same as previously proposed.

Planning officers are likely to make a final decision on the application, under delegated powers, next week.
