A public hearing will take place next week to decide if three new restaurants should be built on the outskirts of Aberdeen.
CAF Properties has asked Aberdeen City Council for permission to build three food and drink units on land near Ardene House Veterinary Hospital at Kingswells.
Two of these units include plans for a drive-thru lane – but no indication has been given as to which businesses may occupy the site.
The first restaurant would have 154 seats and 49 parking spots, the second would have 66 seats and 18 parking spots, and the third would have 48 seats and 20 parking spots.
In September, the council’s planning committee unanimously agreed a public hearing should be held into the plans – and that will take place at the Town House in Aberdeen at 9.30am on Wednesday.

A new council report, which will be presented to the meeting, said 237 people have written to the council formally objecting to the proposal, while 251 have written formally supporting it.
Objectors include Aberdeen Civic Society and West Aberdeen Environmental Protection Association – the charity formed to oppose the construction of a 20,000- capacity football stadium at Kingsford for Aberdeen FC.
Bon Accord and St Nicholas Shopping Centres also objected.
In a report, CAF Properties said: “The sale of food and drink for consumption on the premises would serve Prime Four workers, Kingswells residents and people working at and visiting the new Aberdeen FC stadium.”
