Plans for new flats near a busy Aberdeen road have been refused.
Proposals had previously been submitted to Aberdeen City Council for six homes on land to the rear of 44-46 Bedford Road.
But the local authority has now moved to block the development, saying it would “harm the character and appearance of the area”.
The council’s decision notice states the development would have been “oppressive and harmful to the private amenity afforded to neighbouring dwellings”.
It added an increase in “on-street parking pressures” would also have been a consequence of the planned homes.

The planning application stated: “The site has planning approval for four flats with an identical footprint.
“The upper floors are quite simply bulked out to match that same footprint to add two further flats; one to each of the first and second floors.”
