U2 guitarist's plan for Malibu development gets OK

21 September 2014, 10:57

Malibu - The California Coastal Commission staff has agreed to allow U2's guitarist to build a scaled-down compound in the mountains above Malibu.

The staff recommended Friday that the commission approve a smaller development than the one originally envisioned by David Evans, known better as "The Edge."

Evans has been trying for eight years to build a five-mansion development that neighbors and environmentalists said would damage vegetation and create an eyesore on a ridge overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

A spokeswoman for the Irish musician tells the Los Angeles Times that the new plans are dramatically different and the homes would be built into the contours of the hillside.

The full commission still must approve the 150-acre (60-hectare) project and one senior staffer said there's no guarantee that will happen.
