Building has been continuing at Mark Wright and Michelle Keegan’s ‘£3.5m’ Essex mansion in recent weeks, with the couple installing CCTV security to the property.

The former TOWIE star and the Our Girl actress, both 34, have been creating their dream home this year and now reportedly have submitted plans to erect security gates and a high wall to protect the site. 

The couple has asked for permission to build ‘entrance gates, piers and walls’, according to The Sun, after previously reportedly withdrawing an application for security measures that would block a footpath.

The local parish council said of the planned 2.1m walls in a letter of objection, according to the publication: ‘The design of the high walls, together with the pillars and the gates, are out of keeping with the rural setting, and would detract from the rural nature of this particular area of the Parish.

‘In addition, a public footpath currently runs through this property, and whilst we understand there may be possible applications to alter this in the future, we could not at this time support a planning application which would effectively block a public right of way.’

The council will rule on the new application in the coming weeks.

Representatives for Mark and Michelle have been contacted by MailOnline for a comment.  

Mark and Michelle, who are estimated to have a net worth of £12million, have been documenting the construction process after purchasing the original property for £1.3million in October 2019.  

And despite months of delays due to the Covid pandemic, their five-bedroom mansion is beginning to resemble their architectural model, after builders put in the windows late in August.

Due to various lockdowns and Covid restrictions, construction has been stop- start after they demolished a farmhouse and began building a five-bedroom mansion complete with bar, gym, granny annexe and outdoor swimming pool.

The couple won planning approval for the colossal building project back in January 2020 – and it looks like it’ll be over two years after that date until they can move in.  

Construction experts have estimated the demolition and rebuild of the home will cost around £3.5million.

It will boast a stunning landscaped garden with new trees planted behind an outdoor pool as well as a golf course and football pitch.

There is also a huge make-up room which joins up with an even bigger dressing room on the first floor.

Each of the property’s five bedrooms has its own en-suite, while three of them have dressing rooms.
