Washington, April 18 (ANI): U2 guitarist The Edge has landed in a dispute with his celebrity neighbours in Malibu due to his home development plans.
The 47-year-old, born as David Evans, had hoped to put up five homes on a hill on top of a seaside town.
But his plans have gathered an angry thumbs down from Serra Retreat locals, such as Kelsey Grammer and James Cameron, who fear the building would take its toll on the local environment.
"The downside of this is a permanently scarred mountainside for the benefit of a very few that for many years all will view, Contactmusic quoted Malibu councillor Jefferson Wagner as telling the Los Angeles Times.
"For somebody so revered even to be orchestrating this type of development in such a sensitive area is hypocritical," he added.
The rocker's rep, Jim Vanden Berg, on the other hand, said that efforts were being made to make sure the development would "create a sense of place that respects the environment (and) architecture that will stand the test of time." (ANI)
