THE widow of Beatle George Harrison has won planning permission to build an archive at the home they shared for 30 years.

Olivia Harrison will remove temporary storage and utility units at Friar Park and erect new buildings after being given consent by South Oxfordshire District Council.

The development will include a building for the storage of family papers and objects which are currently stored in “unsuitable” conditions around the estate.

The 20m by 8m bulding will include accommodation for an archivist.

The council said the development would preserve the character and appearance of the conservation area and the setting of the Grade II listed building and would not impact on neighbours.
