An Aberdeen coffee drive-thru has requested permission to extend its opening hours.
Starbucks has set its sights on extending the opening hours of its branch on Wellington Circle, Redmoss.
The cafe is currently open from 6am to 11pm on weekdays, from 6.30am to 10pm on Saturdays and from 7.30am to 10pm on Sundays.
Now Starbucks has applied to Aberdeen City Council for permission to open until 5am.
The application is necessary because council guidelines state such businesses based outside the city centre should ordinarily close at midnight.
The police and environmental health have been consulted and nobody has objected.
The council’s licensing committee is set to make a decision when it meets at the Town House at 10am on Tuesday.
