Part of a former Aberdeen restaurant is to be converted into office space after council officials backed a plan.
Cater Corporation asked Aberdeen City Council for permission to change the use of part of the ground floor of the former Oriental Palace, on Great Northern Road, Aberdeen, to office space.
Developers asked the local authority in 2015 for permission to demolish the restaurant and build six flats there, but planning officers refused permission, claiming the design of the flats was “poor”.
Now Cater Corporation has been told it can use part of the former restaurant and function room as office space after nobody formally objected to the proposal.
In her report, council planning officer Dineke Brasier said: “The proposed change of use is considered to have an improved impact on the residential amenity of neighbouring properties and parking standards.
“It would have a neutral impact on the character and appearance of the surrounding area.”
