A Vale of Glamorgan Council Planning Officer stated in February 2014 that: "I can confirm that the application was granted consent on 23 December 2009 and therefore if works have not commenced then this permission has expired. There were a number of conditions imposed on the permission which have not been discharged, however please be aware that the Planning Department are not informed when works commence" [pers comm].
