HEAVYWEIGHT champ Tyson Fury has been given the green light to extensively renovate his new Grand Designs-style pad.
The Gypsy King bought the eight-bed mansion in Cheshire last year for an unknown price.
He then applied to have it demolished in order to replace it with a modern mansion complete with a new pool.
But a nature report spotted two species of bats nesting in the property's loft meaning Fury would have have had to secure a special licence.
This would have involved putting bat boxes in nearby trees for the common and soprano pipistrelles, but the 34-year-old changed tack.
Fury then reapplied to extensively modernise the dilapidated building and outhouses, which are currently in place.

The Furys, a family of eight, currently live in a £1.7 million mansion in Morecambe.
But the new Styal house is closer to brother Tommy and Love Island girlfriend Molly-Mae Hague, who live nearby in a £3.5m mansion with new baby Bambi.
