A bid has been made to turn a former north-east industrial unit into a fitness studio.
Proposals have been lodged with Aberdeenshire Council for a unit on Straik Road, Elrick, by Thomas Yeats of Apex Fitness and Performance.
A statement provided along with the plans states that, if planning permission was given, a private group personal training facility would be created.
The site is located by a service station and would include an east workshop, west workshop, office, IT room and toilet facilities.
The eight parking spaces currently on site would be kept.
A decision is expected to be made in September.
