Ron Dennis wins planning for mega-basement garage

first_imgHome » News » Ron Dennis wins planning for mega-basement garage previous nextRegulation & LawRon Dennis wins planning for mega-basement garageThe McLaren racing car brand founder set to create an ‘iceberg’ under his Surrey mansion, to house his collection of supercars.Sheila Manchester30th May 201905,561 Views Ron Dennis, the highly successful motor racing team manager and supercar manufacturer, has recently won another victory: planning permission for a 230foot subterranean garage beneath his mansion in Surrey – despite opposition from a neighbour.The multi-millionaire has long planned to build the mega-basement to house his substantial collection of supercars but as many owners and estate agents have found before, planning authorities and neighbours are often less than keen and it hasn’t been a high speed win for the man who founded McLaren International in 1980 and sold his shares for a reported £275m in 2017.Julian Bishop, Head of Real Estate London at Hewitsons LLP and Emma Shipp, Partner reviewed the application:Houses that have been extensively developed are referred to as icebergs in that there is more below the surface than above and getting planning permission can be difficult. Ron Dennis first applied for planning permission seven years ago but was initially turned down by the local planning authority. Dennis appealed on the grounds this was an ‘engineering operation’ and was not inappropriate – and he won.The mega-plans include a lift, turntable, workshop and art gallery. One objection was raised by a neighbour on the basis of increased noise and disturbance but Dennis intends to see the project through.The trend to build so-called ‘mega-basements’ to house, cars, pools and media entertainment rooms has been steadily growing in areas such as London and the South East where space has become more scarce.These developments are classified as mega once they reach either three or more storeys built under the footprint of the house or two storeys built under the house and the garden combined. A study by Newcastle University found that seven London boroughs had approved 4,650 basement plans from 2008 to 2017 including 112 mega basements – most in either the Kensington & Chelsea or Westminster boroughs.Whilst not all such projects are quite as complicated, the issues faced by Ron Dennis show that mega basements have their own unique set of factors. Planning consent may not be easy to obtain and work then needs to start within a defined period to retain the permission. Getting neighbours on side is key both to a smooth running project and to the future enjoyment of the home once the builders have moved on.iceberg development McLaren planning permission mega-basement garage Ron Dennis Sheila Manchester supercar May 30, 2019The NegotiatorWhat’s your opinion?

UK fund managers publish cost transparency proposal

first_imgThe UK’s Investment Association (IA) has proposed a new cost disclosure framework, including transaction costs and securities lending revenues.In a consultation published today, the fund management trade body presented a “common data engine” to provide a measure of asset management costs to multiple stakeholders and regulatory bodies.The proposal comes as the fund management sector faces intense scrutiny of management costs and transparency regarding expenses incurred in portfolio management.The IA has put forward templates for disclosure of costs and “contextual information” – including performance, trading volumes, and turnover – for pooled funds and segregated mandates. The proposals are designed to comply with current UK disclosure rules, as well as impending new regulations such as MIFID II, which will require greater transparency regarding investment research.They also take into account UK rules related to defined contribution pension scheme charges, and the requirements of local government pension schemes, the IA said.#*#*Show Fullscreen*#*# The Investment Association’s cost disclosure template for pooled fundsThe trade body added that the proposals would “adapt as necessary” to the outcomes of the FCA’s asset management market study. In last year’s interim report, the UK regulator criticised “weak” competition on price and a lack of transparency across the sector. The FCA’s final report is due out later this year.Jonathan Lipkin, director of public policy at the IA, said: “The new code provides for the first time a common framework for enhanced disclosure across investment products and services. It is a major opportunity to consistently define and provide data on charges and transaction costs.”He added that the IA would seek “regulatory recognition” for its code within the regulator’s rulebook, known as the Conduct of Business Sourcebook.The IA is seeking responses by 19 May 2017 with a view to publishing its full proposal in Q3 2017.The IA’s paper can be accessed here.center_img The Investment Association’s cost disclosure template for segregated mandates#*#*Show Fullscreen*#*#last_img read more


Victor Moses coach threatens to leave Inter Milan

first_img Loading… Andrea Belotti was gifted the opener after Inter goalkeeper Samir Handanovic fumbled a corner at the Torino star’s feet at San Siro – heaping further misery on Conte and his stuttering side. But Inter – without Romelu Lukaku – rallied in the second half thanks to goals from Ashley Young, Diego Godin and Lautaro Martinez, who ended his five-game scoreless drought. Conte added: “I honestly think we started the game very well. Then there was this corner kick. It was a period where there was an incident and we conceded a goal. “I find it sensational that Samir messed up: he hardly makes mistakes. Overall, I think it was a game we dominated. read also:Conte: ‘Inter on the right track’ “The goal could’ve made us nervous and caused us problems, but we did well to score our goals. “We’re much less predictable than we were before as now we attack with more men. The result must crown the effort we put in and when it doesn’t, it disappoints me. “We’ve been punished excessively by certain incidents, but we’re on the right track: playing attacking football and overloading our opponents’ box.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Inter head coach, Antonio Conte, said he will not “hesitate” to leave if the club are unhappy, though the Italian remains committed to the Nerazzurri project amid question marks over his future. Conte joined Inter at the start of the season but there have been reports the former Chelsea and Juventus boss could leave at the end of the 2019-20 campaign. Doubts have emerged amid Inter’s struggles and Conte’s frustrations, with the team failing to fire since the Serie A returned last month after the season was halted in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. Inter leapfrogged Lazio into the second position in the table, eight points behind leaders Juve with six games remaining, following Monday’s rallying 3-1 win at home to Torino, and Conte was asked about his future. “I was called to Inter for a three-year project, to bring them back where they deserve to be,” Conte told Sky Sport Italia. “Inevitably, that takes time. I came here with so much enthusiasm. I have faith. “I started a three-year project and [my contract] lasts three years. After that, if they want to extend my contract… I’m happy, I know there’s a long way to go, but I don’t want to overstay my welcome. “If everyone’s happy with the job I’m doing, and I think that’s the case right now, from what I’ve been told, then I don’t see why we shouldn’t go on. “If they’re not happy with the job I’m doing then I won’t hesitate to step aside.” Inter have seen their Scudetto bid derailed following a home defeat to Bologna and a draw with Hellas Verona, and they fell behind in the 17th minute on Monday.center_img Promoted ContentPortuguese Street Artist Creates Hyper-Realistic 3D GraffitiA Hurricane Can Be As Powerful As 10 Atomic BombsThe World’s 7 Most Spectacular Railway StationsReal World Archaeological Finds That Would Stump Indiana JonesWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?Who Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?Top 10 Most Romantic Nations In The World10 Risky Jobs Some Women DoBirds Enjoy Living In A Gallery Space Created For Them7 Of The Wealthiest Universities In The World7 Mind-Boggling Facts About Black HolesBest Car Manufacturers In The Worldlast_img read more

The Roar magazine: BiH is finally ready to go to World Cup

first_imgWhile traditional heavyweights such as France, England and Spain garner most attention surrounding the European section of the 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifiers, it is a lesser-known side in Group G who look set to become one of the stories of the campaign, reports Australian sports magazine The Roar.Bosnia and Herzegovina have never qualified for a FIFA World Cup, let alone any major football tournament, yet currently sit atop of their UEFA qualifying group midway through the campaign, three points clear of the second-placed Greece.Should the ‘Dragons’ — as their followers affectionately know them — maintain their spot in first position, they will go directly into the draw for the FIFA World Cup Finals scheduled for Brazil next year.For many of its three-and-a-half million inhabitants (as well as, arguably, its several million diaspora), the performances of the national side provide a much-needed distraction from the struggles of everyday life.Unfortunately, for its loyal supporters, qualification to major tournaments has eluded the Dragons to date – often in cruel circumstances.First, there were the qualifiers for the 2004 Euros.Bosnia had one foot in the door when it faced Denmark in the final qualifying match in Sarajevo.A win against the Scandinavians would have guaranteed progression to the tournament, however the Dragons were forced to settle for a heartbreaking 1-1 draw, sending the side tumbling to fourth position in the group and out of contention.Then, more recently, there was Portugal: the Cristiano Ronaldo-led line-up who would douse Bosnia’s hopes not once, but twice.Despite earning a second-placed group finish for qualification to the 2010 FIFA World Cup – their best effort to date – the Dragons were bundled out at the final hurdle when they commendably succumbed 0-2 to the Portuguese across two play-off legs.Two years later, and Portugal again played the role of villain, this time in the qualification play-offs for the 2012 Euros in Poland and Ukraine.Although the Bosnians held their opponents to a 0-0 stalemate on home soil in Zenica, they were ultimately dismantled 6-2 by a superior Portuguese outfit during the return fixture in Lisbon.If such disappointment was not enough to raise the ire of Bosnians, many felt the Dragons were initially cheated out of a first-place group finish – and, thus, direct qualification – and should not have been forced to battle it out in a knockout tie against Portugal in the first place.In a tense match to round out Euros qualifying in Group D, Bosnia was on their way to taking out top spot as they led a star-studded French side 1-0 at the Stade de France.As fate would have it, in the 77th minute of the match, and with Bosnians daring to dream, Scottish referee Craig Thomson awarded a controversial penalty to France, allowing the home side to level the scores.The match ended 1-1, with the result sending the French top of the group and knocking the Dragons into second place, forcing the latter into an ultimately fateful sudden-death play-off.With new tournaments and opportunities, however, comes new hope.The signs for Bosnia are looking ominous, too, with the side not only unbeaten to date in qualifying, but dominating almost every opponent they have come across.Aside from an impressive goalless draw against Greece in Athens, Bosnia has recorded convincing home victories against Latvia (4-1), Lithuania (3-0) and Greece (3-1), as well as an 8-1 demolition of group minnows Liechtenstein on foreign soil.Yet, the run home for the Dragons is not going to be an easy one.While the side should have little trouble claiming maximum points against Liechtenstein at home, they face testing trips to Latvia and Lithuania, on top of a home-away double against Slovakia in the space of four days in September.If Bosnia is serious about making the most of its campaign, it cannot settle for claiming anything less than a win and a draw from its three away fixtures.In addition, it cannot afford to be complacent and underestimate Slovakia – nor Liechtenstein, for that matter — during their clash on Bosnian soil.While the Slovaks currently lag behind in third position on eight points – five behind the Bosnians – they are a dangerous side with a proven record, which recently includes progression to the Round of 16 at the 2010 World Cup.A loss in Zenica on September six has serious potential to plant a roadblock in the way of Bosnia’s plans and throw Group G wide open. A draw would, at least, keep the boat steady.There is little doubting the Dragons will be relying on captain Edin Džeko to lead the way.The prolific Manchester City striker has been instrumental to the outfit’s success thus far, having scored an accumulative seven goals in each of the side’s victories.Fortunately, for the Bosnians, he is not alone.Other players in top form include 22-year-old AS Roma midfielder Miralem Pjanić, Stuttgart striker Vedad Ibišević and Chinese-based Zvjezdan Misimovic.The trio have scored 11 goals between them across the five qualifiers to date.Such an imposing attack force has coincided with a defence of steel: for the 18 goals Bosnia and Herzegovina has scored so far, they have conceded just three.With an average age of 26, and several of its squad playing regular top-flight football across Europe, it seems as though Bosnia has never been better positioned to finally qualify for a major tournament.After all the nation has been through, both in social and sporting terms, it is anyone’s guess what qualification to the World Cup would do for the morale of the Bosnian population.last_img read more

More than 9,500 in Iowa file unemployment claims

first_imgDES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — More than 9,500 people filed unemployment claims last week in Iowa, and the number of continuing claims still tops 150,000. Iowa Workforce Development reported Thursday that there were 9,516 claims for unemployment insurance in the week ending June 13. That’s a little higher than last week but the number of continuing claims was down by about 3,500. The highest number of new claims came from workers employed in manufacturing. The number of unemployment claims in Iowa and across the country have soared since March, when officials ordered businesses to close or limit their operations in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Most of those restrictions have been eased in recent weeks.last_img


OnePlus 5T Lava Red Limited Edition launched at Rs 37,999, open sale starts from Jan 20

first_imgAfter announcing the Star Wars Limited Edition of the OnePlus 5T in India, OnePlus has launched the Lava Red Limited Edition of its flagship phone in the country at a price of Rs 37,999. The OnePlus 5T Lava Red Limited Edition will be available for buying in India from January 20 (12 PM IST) from the company’s online store as well as from Amazon India via open sale.The Lava Red Limited Edition of the OnePlus 5T was only recently launched in China as an exclusive but soon after it came to light that the company will be bringing it to India soon enough. It was previously being reported by some channels that OnePlus may launch it sometime before January 23, only the company has decided to launch it even sooner.The OnePlus 5T Lava Red Limited Edition, being a limited edition device, will come with maxed out 8GB RAM and 128GB storage configuration and will be available in limited quantities. But unlike the Star Wars Limited Edition of the OnePlus 5T, the Lava Red variant costs as much as the standard Midnight Black variant. The Star Wars Limited Edition was launched in India in December for Rs 38,999.OnePlus has been busy launching one colour variant of the OnePlus 5T after another off late. Not that the original OnePlus 5T has been around for a very long time, but, the company’s strategy to launch a new colour variant — although it offers more options — out of the blue does tend to confuse buyers somewhat.advertisementAlso read: OnePlus 5T Star Wars Limited Edition with 8GB RAM, 128GB storage launched in India at Rs 38,999OnePlus recently launched a Sandstone White colour variant of the OnePlus 5T because apparently fans had been asking for a sandstone OnePlus phone — like the company’s yesteryear classic OnePlus One — for a long time now. The company, according to co-founder Carl Pei, worked rigorously for two years — after coming up with the all-metal OnePlus 3 — and finally, finally it “hit upon a device that matches our standards of design.” Good thing is, the OnePlus 5T Sandstone White costs as much as the original Midnight Black variant. Not so good thing is, the OnePlus 5T Sandstone White will probably not be coming to India anytime soon.If you’re as observant as Sherlock though, you won’t take long to figure out that the OnePlus 5T Sandstone White is essentially the OnePlus 5T Star Wars Edition minus all the Star Wars razzmatazz. The OnePlus 5T Star Wars was exclusive to select markets like India, and the OnePlus 5T Sandstone White is essentially the same phone — sans the Star Wars branding — for all the other markets like US and Europe.But then the Lava Red variant of the OnePlus 5T was also a China-exclusive at some point of time so you never know. The same may happen with the Sandstone White variant as well.Specs, feature and everything to knowAs is customary with most Limited Edition OnePlus phones, the OnePlus 5T Lava Red will also be available in 8GB RAM and 128GB storage option with rest of the hardware specs remaining intact.It comes with a full-metal body with a rear-mounted fingerprint scanner, USB Type-C port for charging and data-syncing purposes, a bottom-facing speaker out, a 3.5mm audio jack and dual-SIM (nano-SIM) support. It is powered by a 2.45GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor clubbed with Adreno 540 GPU and sports an edge-to-edge 18.9 screen with an Optic AMOLED panel. The phone runs Android Nougat-based Oxygen OS and is backed by a 3,300mAh battery with support for OnePlus’ Dash charging.last_img read more


Ranieri ‘shaken’ by death of Leicester’s Thai boss

first_imgMilan, Oct 30 (AFP) Claudio Ranieri revealed on Monday he had been “terribly shaken” by the death of Leicester City boss Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha.Ranieri, 66, was hired by Vichai in 2015 and led Leicester to their historic Premier League title success the following year.Billionaire Vichai, 60, died along with four others when his helicopter plummeted into a car park outside the King Power stadium shortly after his side’s 1-1 draw with West Ham on Saturday.”I was terribly shaken by the news,” Ranieri told Sky Sport Italia in his first public reaction since the tragedy.”He was a good man and always had a positive word for everyone. His positivity and ability to make everybody love him was clear for all to see. He came into the locker room only to dispense kind words, never to reproach you.”One time soon after my birthday, he arrived in the locker room with a huge cake and made everyone sing ‘Happy Birthday.'”He was an illuminated man and everything he touched became better.” Ranieri said it was now up to Vichai’s son “who has always been in love with football” to carry on in his father’s footsteps.He recalled his first meeting with Vichai.”I immediately thought he was a positive person, full of energy. My objective when I arrived at Leicester was to secure Premier League safety, then we all know what happened.”Vichai Srivaddhanaprabha made a very important contribution to the Premier League victory, as he’d arrive 30 minutes before the game to embrace everyone. He never said a word out of turn, was always happy with a smile on his face.advertisement”I am so sad right now, I want to join the family in their grief.” After Ranieri was sacked by Leicester in February 2017 he took charge of French Ligue 1 side Nantes for the 2017-2018 season.
