Heather Mills offers use of pool to fire brigade

Heather Mills is desperate to keep the swimming pool she had put in at her Robertsbridge, East Sussex home. Mills had the pool installed without proper planning permission and now, in an effort to get the District Council to give her retroactive permission, she is offerring the use of it to the local fire brigade for use in case of fire in the village. Ironically, the Council discovered the unauthorized swimming pool when they toured the property to make sure Mills had removed a marquee she had put up without proper permission before.

Planners from Rother District Council spotted the luxury pool when they visited Heather’s home to make sure she had taken down a marquee she had put up without permission earlier in the year.

And when they saw the pool, they quizzed her about when it was built and if permission had been granted.

They soon discovered that no permission had been granted and are now in the process of making a decision on whether Heather will have to concrete over the pool in the grounds of her luxury home.
Heather, however, has now lodged an appeal to keep her 40ft x 22ft pool – saying it could be used to help douse house fires in the area.

He agent David Bailey said: “In an emergency it could be used by the fire brigade. It is solely a recreational facility for the enjoyment of the private residence.”

Leave it to Heather to think she’s doesn’t need the permission of the city planners to do what she wants. One would think after having to take down one structure she had put up without the proper permits and permission she would have made sure and done things right with the pool. I’d like to live in Heather Mills land for just a couple minutes. Where everybody owes you and rules for the common people don’t apply, where the greatest gift you can give is vegan food to homeless people and you can burn through $25 million in 7 months. Just a couple minutes, though, because that’s just too much lala for a normal person to take for too long.

Even more ironic, the vegetarian extraordinaire built her £1million pool over the vegatable garden on her property. Mills says that since she can buy all her vegetables from the supermarket now it was no longer necessary. The greenhouses, which are dilapidated, are intended to be turned into housing for the pool equipment.

The Council planning chiefs will decide if Mills can keep the pool later this month.

    I’m envisioning sirens blazing and multiple fire trucks blasting down her driveway at 3am. I’m liking it.

    Just concrete it over with Heather underneath.

    I don’t care about this golddigging floozy. I “BARACK”eD that VOTE BABY YEA!!!!! Waited in line for 2 1/2 hours and got my vote in early. Now we just have to WAIT……. Whoo!!! Hoo!!!

  4. prissa says:

    Oh and this woman is an idiot. A marquee.. at her home… really???? What a waste!! I hope she’s putting some of the $ away for her daughter…

  5. Codzilla says:

    Her face could shatter a thousand mirrors. Can you imagine waking up to that creature every morning?

  6. Blue says:

    A firefighter draining water out of her pool is kind of a funny image, especially if she is in it at the time. I vote let her keep it.

    And I voted AmeriCain, because he is the best!

  7. Kaiser says:

    Not to take Heather’s side or anything, but would they really make her “get rid” of her pool? It seems like a waste of resources and time. :roll:

    But yeah, typical. The rules don’t apply to her, blah, blah.

  8. geronimo says:

    K – seems like a waste of resources and time? This is what local government does best!! Trust me, logic plays no part when it comes to lack of planning permission. Most things, murder included, pale into insignificance when it comes to not having followed the correct home enhancement/expansion procedures. This could be Heather’s Waterloo!

  9. Kaiser says:

    G, :lol: Funny that *this* could be what does her in – not lying about Paul abusing her, not the insanity, not any of the horrible, batsh-t crazy things she’s done….but this. A pool. :lol:

    Actually, I don’t think she’d be asked to just concrete it over but actually remove it. Part of the problem with such structures in an urban area is how they could potentially interfere with ground-water levels – plus that and the undue strain it would put on civic water resources especially during a summer drought, when you’d most likely be using a swimming pool. As for greenhouses storing pool equipment – probably more likely they were to house heating and pumping stations for the water. Very carbon-friendly :roll:

    Geronimo – the planning regs are there for a reason. So get yer feckin’ plans in and whist yer moanin’ :P

    EDIT: Kaiser and geronimo… remember Al Capone :wink:

    :lol: …and we’re now comparing Peg Leg to a mobster. I love you girls! :P

  12. Jeanne says:

    I hope they all pee in her pool.

    I was lucky enough to grow up with Paul & Linda and I must tell you that peg leg the gold digger is no way 1/32nd of Linda. Peg leg is funny looking and has bad teeth as well as just very evil. Just remember what goes around, comes around. Paul should have listened to his family. The beast has no class. Just my opinion.
