New plans for The Black Bull submitted

blckbullplans

New plans were submitted to Durham County Council on 11th December 2013 by Amber Taverns for the Black Bull pub. The company, which is based in Blackpool, Lancashire have bought the Black Bull after it has been shuttered for many months, and want to turn it into a Sports Bar. There will be structural changes to the inside and outside of the building, with the frontal aspect featuring larger, full height windows and an external veranda. The inside will be opened out and they also plan an outdoor area to the rear of the property.

The plans can be accessed on the Durham County Council website here
