Plans to build a new nursery at an Aberdeen primary school have been approved.
Aberdeen City Council submitted a building warrant to start work for building a single-storey nursery at Broomhill Primary School at the end of last year.
It has now been approved, and work can go ahead.
As well as the building of the nursery, the work also includes an extension to parking facilities.
The plans are being carried out to allow Aberdeen City Council to meet the Scottish Government’s 1,140 funded hours of early learning and childcare.
It was originally to be in place by August, however no new date for local authorities to meet this target has yet been set.
The current nursery is located to the north-east of the school and is connected to the building via a corridor, and was previously described by the council in a design statement as “small and outdated.”
The new building will help provide better facilities for the expansion of funded childcare hours.
