Benedict Cumberbatch shed controversy

Actor Benedict Cumberbatch is discovering that applying for permission to build a garden office or shed in your garden is not always plain sailing. He has recently applied to Camden Council to build an outbuilding in the back garden of his London home which he has already extended as well as converting the attic. It's not a small build, measuring nearly 3m high and over 6m wide, to be built in wood and with a green roof, as well as trellis (you can see a Daily Mail mock-up of how this might look). It's not entirely clear what he intends to do with the shed but as Barbara Ellen points out in the Guardian"supersheds have become status objects for men and women alike".  We'll keep you updated on developments...
