Jimmy Page files second planning complaint against neighbour Robbie Williams



Jimmy Page's ongoing feud with neighbour Robbie Williams looks to have been reignited, with the latter filing another planning permission request for his property.

Page was previously thought to have won his battle with the former Take That singer after Williams initially withdrew proposals to develop his mansion. Williams has been planning to make changes to the garden and the layout of his house, as well as replacing the roof of its glass studio. But Page objected to the renovations, and hired architects, structural engineers and town planners to put together reports arguing why they should not go ahead.

After Williams initially dropped his application, the Daily Mail now reports that the singer has filed new, scaled-down plans. Williams is reportedly aiming to lower floors and create bigger rooms at his property, with his application stating his intention of creating a "contemporary family living that will ensure the long term occupation and appropriate use of the place into the future".

Page recently wrote to Kensington and Chelsea Council, claiming that similar renovations carried out on other properties in the area had resulted in a level of vibration that had caused concern. "The work now proposed is much nearer than other major excavations carried out so far and the consequences for the building fabric and decorative finishes... may well be catastrophic if this project is allowed to proceed," he wrote.

The pair live in west London, where Page has resided since 1972. Williams bought the £17.5 million mansion next door to the Led Zeppelin guitarist, previously owned by late director Michael Winner, in 2013.
