The 75-year-old singer is to install two male and two female ancient Greek-style sculptures next to his garden pond.
Sir Rod Stewart has been given the go-ahead to build four topless statues by an ornamental pond at his £5million mansion.
The 75-year-old singer and his wife Penny Lancaster are to install two male and two female ancient Greek-style sculptures on the pillars of a portico at their Grade II-listed property in Essex.
The garden makeover will also include a tiered stone water feature at the base of the portico, a small paved seating area and lawn pathways within a walled garden close to the main house.
The plans were submitted to Epping Forest District Council in June and the project has now been granted planning permission by officials after no objections from neighbours were received.
A statement submitted on behalf of Sir Rod and Penny, 49, as part of the application said the couple wanted to create a “classical garden” at their home on the edge of Epping Forest.

Penny was keen to see if trendy “micro pigs” would fit in with the rest of their menagerie.
Penny Lancaster literally brought home the bacon to husband Rod Stewart after the family took on two miniature pigs.
The model and Loose Woman panellist has recently been showing off her wild garden in the Essex home she shares with Rod and their two children.
Penny, 49, was keen to see if trendy “micro pigs” would fit in with the rest of their menagerie - including their Labradoodles Blondie and Lily and two free range hens she was given by a friend in February ahead of lockdown.
Penny asked one of her friends if she could borrow the two-strong herd of tiny pigs to see how easily they would adapt to their lifestyle at the £4.65 million home.
As she was pictured feeding one alongside her youngest son Aidan she told fans: “We have borrowed two miniature pigs for a trial date.”
After giving the ‘thirsty boys’ some drinking water and letting them forage in the garden, she decided it was time to let them inside the house.
She invited one of the pigs to try out her living room where it appeared to enjoy a pile of Homes and Gardens magazines alongside a caption saying: “It’s a pigs life.”
They are no strangers to a raucous night out on the town.
