Jamie Oliver plans six-figure revamp on £6m home after restaurant chain collapses – The Sun

CHEF Jamie Oliver plans a six-figure revamp at his £6million home — less than a year after his restaurant chain collapsed.
The chef star, 44, aims to add automatic gates, a new drive and upgrades to an oak-panelled library.

The TV chef – whose restaurant chain collapsed last year with the loss of 1,000 jobs – brought in a top planning consultancy to lodge an application for the work to be carried out.

The plans, expected to cost a six-figure sum to carry out, would see new automatic ornamental iron gates fitted at the 250-metre long driveway of the sprawling family estate.

An application went to Braintree Council, Essex, earlier this month.
Dad-of-five Jamie and wife Jools, 45, bought the 12-bed home last year.

We told last June how the couple lodged plans for thousands of pounds of renovation work – including having under-floor heating installed in the pantry – two weeks after the restaurant claim collapsed.

A source said: “People will be surprised more work is planned.”

Jamie, currently starring in Channel 4 show Keep Cooking and Carry On from his home, also wants to resurface the entrance area with gravel.
