AUTHOR Polly Samson and rock star husband David Gilmour have been granted their wish to build a luxury seafront family home by the width of a guitar string.
‘David Gilmour Live At Pompeii’ is an audio-visual spectacle, featuring lasers, pyrotechnics and a huge circular screen on which specially-created films complement selected songs, but paramount above all is the astonishing music and stellar performances.
Architect Keb Garavito-Bruhn said the original brief was to retain it but it had suffered significant deterioration to exposed brickwork and damage from its previous use by diamond cutters. Planning officer Liz Arnold said while some residents would receive less light, this was outweighed by the benefits to the conservation area in bringing a derelict site back into use.
Cllr Cattell said the loss of light to neighbouring properties was not as severe as had been made out.
Polly Samson took to Twitter and said to her followers: “Daughter's just drawn my attention to this ‘random man’ on Zoella's...” before linking back to the vlogger's Instagram.
45 years after Pink Floyd’s David Gilmour filmed ‘Live At Pompeii’ in the legendary Roman Amphitheatre there, he returned for two spectacular shows in July 2016, part of the year-long tour in support of his No.1 album ‘Rattle That Lock’.
