Residents of Atlanta are so concerned about Justin Bieber's rumoured plans to move into the neighbourhood that they're planning a protest march.

The troubled teenage pop star, who is currently renting out R&B producer Dallas Austin's Georgia home, is said to be planning to sell his property in Calabasas, California and move to Atlanta's affluent Buckhead neighbourhood.

The reports have infuriated residents of the community, who have scheduled a protest march for later today.

Members of local residents group the Buckhead Neighbourhood Coalition unveiled plans for the protest on the organisation's official Facebook page in a message reading, "As a community here in Buckhead, we have worked hard to achieve our goals and get to where we are.

"Justin Bieber's relocation to Atlanta can be nothing but bad for our children, as well as the community. Some can't even let their children play in the driveway without fear, he has raced vehicles under the influence, before.

What's to say he won't do it again ... Please do not allow a child to ruin what we have worked so hard to obtain."

The singer previously infuriated neighbours in his exclusive gated community in Calabasas by allegedly racing his sports cars up and down the quiet residential streets, and he is facing driving under the influence charges in Florida stemming from an alleged drag race last month. He denies three charges related to the incident.
