Kate Moss has faced resistance to her proposal of significantly renovating her North London home.

The supermodel, who recently upset neighbours with plans to build a £850,000 basement gym and steam room, has applied with Camden Council to perform over £2.5 million worth of renovations on the Highgate house.

However, The Daily Telegraph reports that locals have heavily criticised the changes, which also include the installation of television satellites and CCTV cameras to the outside of the property, calling them "tacky" and "unsuitable" for the neighbourhood.

Green Party councillor Maya de Souza has also spoken out on Moss's proposal, claiming that such construction could cause disruptions to the area's water supply.

"My concern is the impact on groundwater flows. This has been known to impact severely on neighbours and can affect water bodies like Highgate ponds as well as causing construction-related nuisance," de Souza told the paper.

"Large basements can mean huge numbers of lorry movements which cause too much disturbance and a risk to other residents. I'll be asking for proper reports on groundwater and the early submission of a contract management plan and if they are not satisfactory I'd like to see the application refused."

Moss shares the home, which once belonged to writer Samuel Coleridge, with husband Jamie Hince and daughter Lila Grace.
