Extension plans for Pink Floyd house in Highgate go ahead despite opposition
Plans to build a two-storey extension at a Highgate home where rock legends Pink Floyd formed in the 1960s will go ahead after permission was granted on Monday.
Despite nearly 30 objections to the extension plans, Haringey councillors voted to grant planning permission at the rear of two Victorian houses in Stanhope Gardens.
It is understood Singaporean developer Sham Masterman paid £1.2million for each house in September last year when the properties went up for auction.
Work will now begin to demolish part of the properties and build a two-storey extension at the rear of both 37 and 39 Stanhope Gardens.
It is thought that all of Pink Floyd’s original band members lived at 39 Stanhope Gardens at some point during the 1960s.

The three-storey house had been owned by the band’s former college tutor and landlord Mike Leonard.
The council received nearly 30 letters of objection to the plans, with concerns about the development being of a “different nature to the conservation area”.
