Ed Sheeran’s plans for his country property have generated almost as many lines as he has had number one success.
Now the tables have turned, the 29-year-old pop star opposing plans to expand the garden next door.
Neighbor Tony Robinson said he was “very disappointed” with Sheeran’s objection to his request to expand his backyard by incorporating part of an enclosure that runs alongside the singer’s £ 3.7 million estate.

In 2018, board officials challenged him about an outdoor sauna and a pub-style sign in a Grade II listed barn.
He was told to apply for a building permit or to withdraw it. Plans for a chapel were also denied, before a revised plan was approved last fall.
Mr. Robinson’s proposal, submitted to the East Suffolk Council, says that most of his garden is in front of his house and provides “little quiet fun” because it is not “private or isolated.”
The extension of his garden would have “little or no negative impact on the approval of neighboring properties,” added the communication.
But an objection to Sheeran’s name was raised by Paul Smith of Apex Planning Consultants.
Smith said the new garden “would appear out of place in the village” and “would extend the village into the countryside in unexpected and artificial ways”, but added that the singer was happy to compromise.
Robinson said, “I am very disappointed because I officially supported his latest planning request to build his chapel in the adjacent field just under my oak tree.
The board will have to decide if our proposal is reasonable. “
Sheeran officials made no comments.
