A Pool Is A Must Have Item

Planning restrictions and protection orders in some of London's most exclusive neighbourhoods have meant that building expansion is quite often out of the question. So developers have hit on a new solution - develop below ground.

And the rich are lapping it up. A spokeswoman for Kensington and Fulham Borough Council told us:

"We've been inundated with planning applications for subterrainean extensions. They're becoming all the rage now. They range in scope from underground granny flats to one which proposes a 1,000 seat cinema, a recreation of a Victorian Street with three pubs, a bowling alley, an underground car park, a 10,000 seater underground football stadium, two restaurants, an olympic sized swimming pool, a casino, and a canal system with gondolas to transport users from one part of the complex to another."

This threw us a little bit. Won't this have an effect on the spaces above, we asked?

"Not really," an architect told us. "A few streets might collapse, but aside from that and a spot of disruption to the Central Line we don't foresee any problems."

Wow. More as we get it.
