Developers in Swansea have been given the go-ahead to build a housing estate next door to Catherine Zeta Jones' new £2 million luxury mansion.

Dozens of well-heeled families will soon by vying to "keep up with the Joneses" after Swansea Council approved the controversial housing scheme.

Houses on the mini 42-home estate, on a former caravan site, are expected to sell at a premium because of the allure of being neighbours with the Hollywood star.

The quiet former fishing village of Mumbles has become a magnet for tourists since Jones built a luxury home there.

Now planners in the star's home city have backed a multi-million pound housing scheme, lodged by builder Taylor Woodrow.

The project was passed in the face of stiff local opposition which included 160 letters of objection and a 38-name petition.

Residents claim the estate will eat into open countryside and is simply too big for the area and will generate too much traffic.
