Sir Alex Ferguson faces months of noise after losing battle to stop neighbour from building three-storey mansion

FORMER Man United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is braced for more noisy neighbours after losing a planning battle.

He objected strongly to next door’s application to demolish a two-storey house and build a three-storey mansion.

Fergie’s lawyers sent a five-page opposition letter to planners.

He claimed his privacy would be affected by removal of trees which would also impact the character of the area.

He said the removal of trees was “likely to have a significant impact on the character of the area and the existing privacy standards afforded”.

Sir Alex and wife Cathy also warned that previous developments in the private road in Wilmslow, Cheshire, had also caused flooding problems and that the development was not in keeping with the rest of the houses in the area.

But planners decided to allow the scheme in Wilmslow, Cheshire.

A source said: “Fergie had a well documented problem with Manchester City during the final years of his time at Old Trafford – dubbing them ‘noisy neighbours’.

“Now he and wife Cathy are going to endure months of real noise as builders demolish a property and then build one in its place.

“Let’s hope he can keep his temper but I wouldn’t be surprised if they experience the hairdryer treatment at some point.”

Sir Alex, 78, labelled rivals Manchester City “noisy neighbours” in 2009.

He said at the time: “You just have to get on with your life, put your television on and turn it up a bit louder.”
