George Michael’s sister has been given the go-ahead to give the singer’s former Hampstead home a major makeover.

The singer owned many properties across the globe, but lived at the Oak Hill Park home in Hampstead for many years after buying it in 1987.

The singer died in 2016, and on April 30 Camden Council approved the latest of two applications to transform the property, which has fallen into disrepair.

George’s sister Yioda Panayiotou proposed plans to “restore the house to habitable conditions”.

In design documents, BB Partnership Chartered Architects proposed a series of changes to the mansion, which was built in 1976 .

This includes changing the garage connected to the house into a “habitable space”, lowering the front patio area and introducing new patio doors to the terrace and new rear decking to wrap around up to the bedroom.

In another application approved earlier this year, external changes were also proposed, including replacing the existing ribbed metal roof and installing new double-glazed windows.

An roof-mounted water tank will also be removed and solar panels will be fitted.

The Hampstead conservation area advisory committee said that it had “no objections”.

Camden Council said that the existing roof is “in a poor state of repair”.

It added: “Given the nature of the work and the distance away from neighbouring properties, the proposal is not considered harmful in terms of loss of privacy, outlook, implications to natural light, artificial light spill, or impacts caused from the construction phase of development.

“No objections were received following statutory consultation. The site's planning history and relevant appeal decisions were taken into account when coming to this decision.”

These proposals were approved under the condition that development must begin no later than the three years from the approval date and all new external work should be carried out with materials that resemble closely to the colour and texture of the existing building.
