Paul McCartney ordered to tear down log cabin on his English estate

LONDON (AP) _ Paul McCartney can't let it be.

Local officials said Wednesday they had ordered the former Beatle to tear down a log cabin on his estate in southern England.

Rother District Council said its planning committee refused to give the 63-year-old musician retrospective planning permission for the timber lodge on the grounds of Woodlands Farm in Peasemarsh, about 70 miles southeast of London.

A statement on McCartney's behalf to the council said the cabin provided ``privacy, seclusion and security'' away from the farm buildings and machinery and a public footpath that passed near the farmhouse.

But at its meeting in December, the planning committee ruled that the building ``harms the intrinsic landscape quality and character'' of the area.

The council said McCartney has six months to appeal.
