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.”
