Clooney at odds with Parish Council on CCTV
Published 18/07/15



GEORGE CLOONEY is seeking planning permission to install a CCTV system at his £10million home in Sonning Eye.

The actor and his wife, Amal Alamuddin, want to put up eight cameras on wooden poles in the grounds of Mill House and attach a further 10 to the Grade II listed property.

Six of the poles would be four metres high, another would be five metres high and the eighth would measure six metres.

Each camera would be housed in a protective vandal-resistant dome and could be tilted or panned to face in any direction.

Eye and Dunsden Parish Council objects, saying the “wide range” of the cameras “represents a potential infringement of the privacy of neighbouring properties”.

It says the poles would be a “visual intrusion” into the village’s conservation area, adding: “A more appropriate security system could be achieved by a greater number of inward-facing low-level cameras.”

However, South Oxfordshire District Council’s conservation officer recommends approval as long as the cameras can easily be removed from the building.

The district council will make the final decision.

Two months ago it approved the couple’s plans for a new swimming pool, pool house, home cinema and annexe, a replacement river house and new boundary fencing.

It asked Clooney to reduce the size of the river house, which he agreed to do.

The parish council also objected to these because it wanted the fencing set further back from the river.

Clooney and Alamuddin, a London-based human rights lawyer, bought the property in October last year.
