Plans to demolish an Aberdeen pub and build nine flats in its place have been refused by a local authority.
The application was made to Aberdeen City Council by David Murray Associates, for the Croft Tavern site on Stockethill Crescent in September.
Proposals would have seen the Croft Tavern pub, which was built in the 1970s, demolished, with new flats erected in the same place.
It aimed to provide “high quality” residential accommodation.
Council officers refused the application, in a decision made last week.
Daniel Lewis, development management manager, said: “The applicant has indicated that there is no intention to complete a section 75 agreement (i.e. failure to conclude a planning application) and consequently the proposed development fails to provide adequate affordable housing, adequate dedicated amenity space or open-space provision, and in turn constitutes over-development of the site.
“As such, the proposal is considered unacceptable in its entirety.”
