Moving in: The Beckhams are spending £5million on building work before they move into their new London home, pictured, but a neighbour has complained over plans to install air conditioning
Plans: The first floor will belong to David and Victoria, and boast a huge bedroom, an even bigger dressing room and an en-suite bathroom. The house will include rooms for hairdressing, manicures and make-up, as well as separate rooms for 40-year-old Victoria’s shoe collection

One resident has written to the local council and said he 'totally disagrees' with the plans, which 'will affect the historic character of the Victorian house of the streets, my house included'.
MailOnline understands that the complainant is worried about air conditioning units being attached to the mansion, because of the visual impact and the humming noise.
His letter said: 'The council must identifed (sic) our deep concerns about all adverse impacts on living conditions from noise, vibration, dirt, pollution and dust from construction and from associated traffic, in addition to concerns about impacts on drainage, on appearance and landscape, on structural stability, and on historic buildings.'
The Beckhams have hired designer Rose Uniacke to oversee the project and plans for 'internal alterations at all levels' were approved in February this year.
This included the enlargement of the lower ground floor wine cellar and the installation of a retractable cinema screen. They also want to re-configure two bathrooms while removing a third-floor guest bathroom to form an extended bedroom and sitting room.
When ready, the home will have six-bedrooms, a gym, study, office, playroom, cinema and large drawing room.
The first floor will belong to David and Victoria, and boast a huge bedroom, an even bigger dressing room and an en-suite bathroom.
The house will include rooms for hairdressing, manicures and make-up, as well as separate rooms for 40-year-old Victoria’s shoe collection.
Staff and security will have access to a tunnel which will take them unseen to a second property.
The couple have already installed a sound system so that music can be played in every room, and which can be controlled by a phone or computer. They are planning on adding specially designed waterproof plasma TVs in every bathroom.
Their children Brooklyn, 16; Romeo, 12; Cruz, ten; and daughter Harper, three, will take over the second floor of the house which has three bedrooms, all with en-suite bathrooms.

Particulars: These photos submitted to the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Council in October 2014 show the mansion needs refurbishing since it was last updated in the 1990s
The lower ground floor includes a study, a gym and massage room, three service rooms and a small garden and there is an underground garage where David can keep his fleet of cars.
David and Victoria reportedly sold their Hertfordshire home, known as Beckingham Palace, for £12million. However, they also own homes in California, Dubai and a £2.6million holiday home in the South of France. The Beckhams bought the 12-acre estate just three months after their wedding in 1999 for £2.5million.
They submitted a fresh application for air-conditioning in February, with the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea Council expected to make a decision on it in the next three weeks.
The Beckhams will also be installing underfloor heating at the home.
