Billie Faiers and Greg Shepherd have ended their long-running feud with their neighbours, according to reports.

The 30 year old and her 33 year old husband have been caught in a row with locals over their plans to build their dream home in Essex.

The Mummy Diaries stars bought a run down £1.4million 1920s property in Brentwood last year, submitting plans to turn it into a five bedroom home to share with their daughter Nelly, six, and three year old son Arthur.

But the 18 month project faced rejections after being branded "too grand" by their neighbours.

However, it seems the former The Only Way Is Essex star's nearby residents have finally deemed the plans "acceptable" after a number of changes and compromises.

In their latest submission, the couple say: "The planning officer confirmed that these now overcome the reasons for refusal on the original application.

"They therefore recommended that a revised application be submitted."


It is reported that the changes made to the revised plan include the height of the planned extension being 50 centimetres lower and making sure the home is further from their neighbours.

According to The Sun, one of the reality stars' neighbours has told their local council: "I give my response to the amended drawings for the above property which, whilst I would have liked to have had similar window treatment to bedroom 4 as that of bedroom 2, I find to be acceptable in principle."

The neighbour added that if the house "fits the character of the area… it would have my support."

A previous rejection response from the council officer's report said: "It would be the biggest house on the street and the increase in size from the original home would not be accepted.

"The proposed extensions would create a development which is excessive in terms of bulk, size, massing, roof design and siting, resulting in overly dominant additions to the existing dwelling and a substantial building out of character and appearance within its context.

"It would unacceptably reduce the spatial quality between properties which is characteristic of the area, to the detriment of local visual amenity."

Billie has previously admitted she wants to make vast changes to the property, calling it "old and dated" as she updated followers on her home renovation Instagram profile.

She wrote to her 336,000 followers: "I thought I would start off by showing you the kitchen… The Hub of the home to us as a family…

"As you can see the kitchen in its current state is very old and dated… We are going to be completely changing this layout as we are extending across the back of the house to create a much bigger space which will become a kitchen / dining area / sofa area (all open plan) with a Play room separately at one end and utility room at the other end."
