I think the Bridgwater Mercury need to check their facts, as the Black Horse Inn was still standing when I drove past it tonight and still had the 'for sale' sign on the front of the building.

With the closure of the Hope Inn, on Taunton rd, I would have thought that the Residents of Taunton Rd and Rhode lane, would be fighting, not literally, to maintain this Pub to remain as a local Pub. As if I am not mistaken, it now makes the nearest public house, as j 24 Huntworth, or St Mary St. Surely, a local Pub, should be retained for Residents, as a Community Hub.
If, communities can establish that they are reliant on a single Access point ,they are able to ensure the retention for future use. Obviously, they must use it to make it viable, as no Landlord could or would open a pub, without a sound Business Plan.

The planners should of ensured a new pub was opened at Stockmoor as originally planned. By all accounts Black Horse and Hope Inn were both very rough due to the clientèle. Shamw if the Hope inn was lost though. Superb looking building and an old Starkey, Knight and Ford pub complete with horse livery.

And yes Mercury should of checked if it was indeed demolishes but the Design and Access statement for the development also states demolished pub. Jumping the gun a bit me thinks.

Shame the Mercury haven't gone with my suggestion of posting the planning application reference with all planning related articles
