Owners of a pub in Dalton have been given the green light to turn it into two dwellings.

The Black Bull in Tudor Square in Dalton had been run as a pub and a hotel for years, however despite the efforts of a string of owners and landlords, the pub was eventually closed by Enterprise Inns.

It was on the market for a year without being purchased, before it was snapped up at auction.

Developers told Barrow Borough Council that it was unlikely it could be ever run as a pub again, and an application was submitted to turn it into two homes.
