Mccartney Cabin Still Facing Demolition

LATEST: SIR PAUL MCCARTNEY still faces the prospect of having his beloved log cabin torn down, despite having been convinced he had won the battle to keep it. The singer, 64, built the secluded hideaway in 2002 on his sprawling estate in East Sussex, England, and has been trying to secure retrospective planning permission from Rother District Council this year (06). After believing the building had been saved - on the compromise he demolished three of his other buildings on the grounds - the ex-Beatles star has now been informed planning councillors have overturned the decision, because it is a blight on an area of natural beauty. A site inspection will take place before the council's next planning committee meeting on 12 October. Councillor DAVID VEREKER explains, "If we go along this route (keeping the cabin) we will be creating a very, very difficult precedent,"
