via UCR Five years ago British singer Robbie Williams bought the property next door to Zeppelin Maestro, Jimmy Page in Kensington, London. He planned on overhauling the home and installing an underground swimming pool (how very, Bond-villain-esque). The problem was Mr. Page had concerns over the construction causing structural damage to his home, namely the 'Tower" portion of the historical property he lives in. After years of verbal barbs, and legal involvement, Jimmy appeared at a planning board meeting in Kensington Town Hall earlier this week.
The board instructed Williams contractors to make sure they had legal assurances that their work would not damage the adjacent home. Some further investigation may even require to use only hand tools. Well, that sounds time-consuming AND expensive.
“I’m really pleased at the outcome, in so much that the council showed so much consideration to Tower House,” Page said after the meeting.
And hey, Robbie Williams, can't you just join the "Y" or something?
