A planning application has been submitted for the former C & A Motors on Farrar Road in Bangor to turn the store at rear the building into a pub and restaurant. The planning also includes alterations to the external elevations, demolition of two outbuildings and the creation of a car park.

The property currently includes a substantial five bedroom, three storey residence with a sizeable commercial premises attached.

The former garage was originally for sale by Auction in August 2017 with a guide price of £175,000, and was described as offering huge development potential & opportunity, including housing of multiple occupation, letting accommodation and ‘more besides’ all of which would be subject to planning consents, approvals and any change of use requirements.
