Led Zeppelin guitarist Jimmy Page and Take That's Robbie Williams have continued their feud over Williams' home renovations plans - this time over the singer's plan to build a swimming pool.

According to the Evening Standard, "a planning battle" between the duo will continue as the London council was unable to come to a decision on Tuesday regarding Williams' swimming pool renovations.

Page has been vehemently opposed to Williams' ideas for a basement swimming pool and gym because he worries that the vibrations from the digging could damage his Gothic-style home designed by architect William Burges.

The 74-year-old guitarist was concerned in particular that construction workers could damage his home's interior of plaster, stained glass and tile.

During the meeting, Page referenced a report by English Heritage saying, "The conclusion was that the finishes, in particular those applied directly to walls, would be highly vulnerable to any movement of the walls."

According to Williams' representatives, any effects on neighbours would be "negligible."

Because there are additional "legal assurances" with regards to accommodations like needing work to be completed with solely hand tools, a final decision about the renovations has been delayed.

The feud between Page and Williams has been brewing since 2013 when Williams purchased his West London mansion for £17m.

Since then, Williams has claimed that Page has spied on the singer's work crews, who later received a fine for noise violations.

Williams also had to apologise to Page for accusing him of having a mental illness.

There is no date set for a decision regarding the renovations.
