George Clooney's Neighbors Object to His Planned Obtrusive Camera System

There's a certain price to pay for your fame, and that's something George Clooney has long battled: he has always valued his privacy and fought against the paparazzi.

In his fight to keep them away, he is now alienating his neighbors in the UK. They don't like his plans for an extensive security system, claiming it would be an invasion of their privacy.

Clooney and his bride, Amal Alamuddin, are looking for permission to install a CCTV security system in their home in Sonning Eye near Reading, Berkshire. They would like to put up eight cameras on wooden poles on the ground of the property and attach another 10 to the home itself.

Six of the poles would be over 13 feet high, another would be 16 feet high, and the last would be nearly 20 feet off the ground. Each of the cameras would be housed in a protective vandal-resistant dome and would be able to be tilted or panned in any direction.

The local parish council objects, saying it represents a potential infringement of the privacy of neighboring properties. It believes the poles would be a visual intrusion into the village's conservation area and said, "A more appropriate security system could be achieved by a greater number of inward-facing low-level cameras."

Yet the district council's conservation officer would approve as long as the cameras can be easily removed from the building. It is the district council that will make the final decision. Not too long again it approved Clooney and Alamuddin's plans for a new swimming pool, pool house, home cinema and annex, a replacement river house, and new boundary fencing.

Clooney was asked in that decision to reduce the size of the river house, and he agreed to do so. The parish council also objected to these plans because it wanted the fencing set further back from the river.

They Clooneys bought the property last October.
