Far from a done deal

I enjoyed reading the article in the West Sussex Gazette (July 25) about The Black Horse, Amberley, but your headline “Fond farewell to a pub full of great memories” was somewhat premature.

The proposed conversion of the pub to residential accommodation is far from a done deal and there are several obstacles for the owner to overcome not least obtaining planning consent and significant local opposition.
