Popstar Dua Lipa will finally be able to make major changes to her West Hampstead home after a near two-year battle.

The 27-year-old artist bought the property in 2017 for £6.75 million when she was just 22.

But there was opposition her 2021 proposals to add a pool, steam room, cinema, relaxation zone and a studio waiting area and lobby.

The plans proposed "the erection of a replacement single storey rear extension, enlargement of existing basement including formation of pool with associated mechanical plant."

The One Kiss singer was given the go-ahead at the start of this month, with some restrictions.

Builders are instructed they must keep noise to a minimum and machinery used should have anti-vibration isolators.

In the planning application submitted in 2021, the document says the conservation area has "large individual and semi-detached houses from the Edwardian and Victorian period set in mature tree lined streets".

Dua Lipa also intended to remove certain trees and repair a traditional boundary wall on the property.

The Redington Frognal Neighbourhood Forum objected to the felling of a willow tree, which it said may have been planted to soak up water from an underground boundary stream.

And it warned against the rebuilding, or any potential harm, to boundary walls constructed from lava bricks (also known as clinker bricks), which it said are "a very important feature of the Redington Frognal Conservation Area".

Planning officers said the existing rear extension should not be demolished, as it "positively contributes to the character and appearance of the host dwelling".

A heritage statement supporting the application by Bernard Stilwell Architects said: "The new owner-occupier/applicant is sensitive to the significance of the house and its garden. They wish to treat it with respect and to ensure the impact of the proposed changes make for a positive contribution to the area."

It added the 1990s extension was "designed for the purposes of the previous owner" and "has served its purpose".

Among her other plans, the artist aimed to create a ground floor entrance hall, dining room, drawing room, pantry, library, powder room, garden room, and a master bedroom and bathroom with dressing and linen rooms on the first floor.

The second floor would have featured guest bedrooms and a landing area.

No objections were raised by her neighbours, who include celebrities such as Sam Smith, Boy George and Jimmy Carr.

As part of Camden Council's approval, the development must begin not later than the end of three years from July this year.
