Plans to create a wine bar in Aberdeen have been approved.
The former Malt Mill pub, on Holburn Street, will be transformed into the new establishment and four flats, which will also be created now that proposals have been given the go-ahead.
Launched by Cumming & Co on behalf of the Mill Ltd, the scheme includes a private tasting room and cellar space.
The proposals were launched last August, a year after the pub was closed in 2016.
A new building would be built following the demolition of the adjoining Union Glen building.
A design statement submitted to the local authority said: “The redundant ventilation, bar equipment and drainage on the Union Glen facade of the existing Malt Mill building will be removed and all stonework repaired where necessary.
“This will improve the overall quality of the building appearance,” the design statement added.
According to planning documents lodged, the homes would be three two-bedroom flats within the new building and one two-bedroom apartment created below the wine bar.
In a decision notice from Aberdeen City Council, development management manager Daniel Lewis said: “It is considered that the proposed development, which will support the reuse of a vacant building, can be delivered without adversely affecting the amenity of existing residents or non-residents in the surrounding area and will provide a suitable level of amenity for future residents of the flatted properties, while also allowing the operation of a licensed premises within part of the site.
“Due consideration has been given to the scale, siting and finish of the proposed extension and associated outdoor space, and to the external alterations of the existing building, thus ensuring no adverse visual impact on the surrounding area.”
