Robbie Williams wins pool plan row with Led Zeppelin's Jimmy Page
Robbie Williams has won a five-year battle over plans for an underground pool at his west London home, despite objections from neighbour Jimmy Page.
The Led Zeppelin guitarist said he feared construction work on the pool could be "catastrophic" for his mansion Tower House.
But Williams' scheme has now been granted conditional approval.
Planning committee chairman councillor Quentin Marshall suggested the pair "find a way to talk" about the issues.
Disagreements between Page, 74, and Williams, 44, began when the former Take That singer bought the house next to Page - which used to belong to Michael Winner.
In May, Page argued at a Kensington and Chelsea Council planning meeting that the excavation work could damage his Grade I-listed Gothic-style home.
Representatives for Williams previously said any construction work would fall within stringent regulations and any effects on surrounding properties would be "negligible".
At another meeting on Tuesday night, planning permission was granted to Williams.
However, work will not begin until councillors receive reassurance about monitoring vibration levels and ground movement.

They will also discuss whether to ask Williams for a bond, which could be forfeited if the conditions were breached or if any damage occurs.
The planning permission is subject to a legal agreement, which must be approved by the planning applications committee, to be discussed at another meeting next year.
Mr Marshall suggested the celebrities meet to try to put their differences aside.
He said: "It seems they are not that far apart. It's slightly frustrating.
"I know the two principals are very busy, but surely they can find a way to talk, which might lock many of the problems."
After the meeting, a spokesman for Page, who bought the property in 1972, said the rock legend was happy to meet up with Williams.
He said: "From Jimmy's point of view he will be reassured that the committee of councillors are taking the protection of the house seriously.
"He wants Robbie to come back with proposals that eliminate all risk to the Tower House."
