Plan to turn former North-east toy shop into fitness studio approved

Steven's Toymaster in Ellon.

Plans to turn a former toy store into a fitness studio have been accepted.

The proposals for the change in use for the former site of Steven’s Toymaster on The Square in Ellon were submitted by Ken Mathieson Architectural Design Ltd on behalf of CPR Health and Fitness last month.

Aberdeenshire Council accepted the plans yesterday, with the condition that the fitness studio will not operate outwith the hours of 6am until 10pm Monday to Saturday, and 8am until 7pm on a Sunday.

The condition was imposed to ensure that it does not result in undue loss of amenity for the surrounding properties to the site.
