Cliff Richard Ordered to Demolish Property's Extension

Having legal fight to keep an extension on his home, singer Cliff Richard has lost the battle after planning officials learn that the structure is illegal.

British singer Cliff Richard has been ordered to tear down an extension on his home after local officials ruled the structure illegal. Planning officials at Runnymede Borough Council deemed the glass conservatory "too big" and alleged it was added to the Surrey, England property in 2006 without proper authorization.

The pop veteran battled to save the structure and lodged an appeal against the council's decision, but his legal challenge has been dismissed and authorities have ordered him to demolish the extension. Richard's planning consultant, Dave Farrell, admits the star is dismayed by the ruling.

He says, "(The demolition order is) a bit silly. We're disappointed but it's just one of those things." Planning committee chairman Geoff Woodger, adds, "The decision confirms our view that the conservatory breached policy."
