Blackhill Church gains planning consent

Following extensive consultations with Durham County Council, planning permission is granted for the redevelopment of Blackhill Methodist Church in Consett Co Durham UK. Detailed design is now planned with a view to commencing on site at the earliest opportunity, once all funding has been secured.

John Carr, Senior Architect said, ” We are delighted to achieve this monumental milestone. While it has proved challenging at times to satisfy the aspirations of a number of varying consultees, at all times our proposals have sought to provide a design solution which respects the heritage of the existing church, while instilling a fresh image for successive generations. We understand all parties involved are delighted with the outcome and we look forward to taking the next steps onto site.”
