Wayne and Coleen Rooney have been accused of turning a picturesque town into a ‘footballer’ housing estate when a parish council attacks the couple’s £ 20 million mansion, which has been compared to a Morrisons supermarket.
Ollerton with the Marthall Parish Council posted a five-minute video on YouTube focusing on a neighbor’s offer to build a barn at Ryecroft Farm, next to the Rooney family home in Knutsford, Cheshire.
The council said it was concerned that once built, the barn would be used as a home rather than for sheep farming, as claimed by the applicant.
In a video criticizing those plans, the council dragged out the Rooneys and their remodel of neighboring Mount Pleasant Farm.
Without naming the famous couple, the council urged planning authorities to oppose the neighboring app to “prevent the conversion of this part of Cheshire into a footballers’ development.”
The surrounding towns in Cheshire are popular with Manchester City and Manchester United players, including Raheem Sterling, John Stones and Kyle Walker, Harry Maguire, Marcus Rashford and Luke Shaw, as well as Liverpool and Everton players Jordan Pickford and Jordan Henderson. .
The area, known as the Cheshire Golden Triangle, was also the formal home of David and Victoria Beckham, Rio Ferdinand, and Christiano Ronaldo.
Knutsford has a supercar garage that provides wealthy residents with high-end cars, including Porsche, Lamborghini, Aston Martin, and Rolls Royce.
MailOnline has reached out to the Rooneys for comment.
The six-bedroom mansion that Wayne and Coleen had been building since 2017 was still surrounded by cranes and workers in early 2020, but was completed later that year.
Wayne Rooney completed a football field with first-class facilities in his £ 20 million mega mansion with 40 acres of land that he and his wife Coleen had been building for almost three years.

A source said Sun that the line was ‘clearly aimed at the Rooneys’ and their £ 20 million mega mansion that was completed last year.
The former footballer’s dream mini soccer stadium is complete with coaches’ benches, changing rooms and even a spectator area.
The six-room Cheshire Stack, rudely compared in design to a Morrisons superstore out of town, also has an artificial pitch measuring up to 60,000 square feet on its expansive 40 acres of land.
Social media users compared the Rooney family’s luxurious new home, believed to have its own movie theater and swimming pool, to Morrisons or Tesco.
One person wrote online: ‘It looks like my local Morrison supermarket. 20 million pounds for that?
Another said, ‘Surely it’s a new build from Tesco …?’ – others even compared it to a Travelodge hotel.
Their luxurious garage has room for six cars and the stables (pictured) have room for 14 horses plus a hay shop and tack room.

Several people on social media compared the design of Rooney’s house to that of a supermarket, like this Morrisons in Sunderland.
The people’s hall in Marthall. Ollerton of Marthall Parish Council has accused the Rooneys of turning Knutsford into a ‘footballers’ housing estate
Ollerton with the Marthall Parish Council posted a five-minute YouTube video focusing on a neighbor’s offer to build a barn at Ryecroft Farm (pictured, plans for that app), next to the Rooney family home in Knutsford, Cheshire.
The council said it was concerned that, once built, the barn would be used as a home rather than for sheep farming, as claimed by the applicant.
Referring to the neighboring request, Ollerton with the Marthall Parish Council said: ‘It has been building on this site for over ten years, and now there is less than 45 acres of arable land left.
“There is not enough land left to cultivate or justify barns of this size. The main business of the applicant and his family is property development, not agriculture.
‘This is a plan devised to fail. Once the business fails, the barn will become another home. . . to create what has become a collection of very, very large houses.
“We as a parish council ask you to oppose this request in order to protect the green belt and prevent the conversion of this part of Cheshire into a footballers’ development.”
The video was posted on the council’s YouTube page and was also sent to the Cheshire East City Council planning authority.
Ollerton has been contacted with the Marthall Parish Council for comment.
