Plans to convert a 140-year-old north-east school into affordable homes have been approved.
Cairngorms National Park Authority (CNPA) had called in the proposals for 24 properties in Ballater.
The organisation gave the go-ahead for the development at its meeting in Nethy Bridge.
Grampian Housing Association had put forward plans to convert the school on Abergeldie Road.
A similar application had been turned down by the CNPA planning committee in May 2018.
This new application sees the number of homes reduced from 26 to 24, with vehicular access now being via Abergeldie Road rather than School Lane as previously planned.
Katherine Donnachie, CNPA planning officer, said: “This site is particularly well located in terms of access to the facilities and amenities of Ballater and the proposal is an excellent use of a redundant site.
“To have a listed building of architectural and historical importance brought back into productive use is also extremely positive.
“I welcome the changes made from the previous application and believe we have a very good proposal in front of us.”
Eleanor Mackintosh, convener of the committee, said: “We are happy to support the proposals.”
