Plans have been lodged to demolish part of an Aberdeen pub to make way for student flats.
The function room of the Brig O’ Dee Bar on Holburn Street could be torn down and replaced with accommodation for 40 students.
A previous application lodged last year with Aberdeen City Council for 43 student beds was withdrawn earlier this year.
David Reid, who owns the Doric Pub Company which runs the Brig O’ Dee, was behind the plans.
He had previously said there was no support for the lounge despite trying everything they could to make it work.
Mr Reid had also said the proposals would help ease pressure for student accommodation close to Robert Gordon University and benefit the local community, and hopes it will be a gateway to the city.
Doric Pub Company also runs the Kittybrewster bar after buying it almost two years ago.
The latest proposals have been lodged by Yorsipp (Trustees) and Mr Reid.
Paul O’Connor, chairman of Inchgarth Community Centre and Garthdee Community Council, said he was supportive of the plans but would pursue all avenues to get more money for the community.
He said: “As far as the community council goes we see no problems with this application or with the previous one.
“We didn’t put in an objection to the last application and I don’t see the Garthdee Community Council putting in one for this one.
“If this can help free up the local housing market then I am all for it.
“There is a lot of HMOs in our area and we can’t have it both ways.
“We can’t actively try and decrease the amount of HMOs and then refuse planning applications for student accommodation.”
He added: “However I would note that the Garthdee Community Council would always be actively looking at money that could go back into the community through Section 75 agreements.”
It is understood a decision on the proposals could be made in October.
