A DECISION is yet to be made on a planning application sent in the summer of 2021 for the restoration of Normandy House.

The Victorian manor on Bridgeman Road has been in a state of disrepair for years, with the previous owner fined in court for failing to look after the building.

Contractors have been on the site to stop the house being a danger by removing parts that were structurally unsafe.

Plans were submitted by the owners, property firm Equorium, to the Vale of Glamorgan Council on July 26, 2021, which were then validated on August 12, 2021.

The plans involved restoring the house and adding another building to the site which would be used as apartments.

Four apartments would be in the existing manor once it is restored and another five would be in the proposed additional building.

However, the council is still to approve or reject these plans with no word on when the decision will be made.

A Vale of Glamorgan Council spokesman said: "We are currently considering a planning application for the restoration and refurbishment of the existing derelict residential building to provide four apartments with five new apartments in new extensions.

"Officers are still having active discussions with the agent on several matters and are fully aware of the deteriorating condition of the building.

"To date there is no anticipated date that a decision is likely to be made."

For now, the manor will remain overlooking the Esplanade in a sorry state until action is taken restore it to its former glory.
