Plans have been lodged to turn a former bank into a new restaurant and takeaway.
Sava Estates has submitted an application to Aberdeenshire Council to transform the old Royal Bank of Scotland building on Turriff’s High Street.
The bank closed its doors in June, but proposals have been tabled to see the building brought back into use.
A design statement for the application said the site would be converted into a “quality restaurant” with takeaway.
It added: “The proposed development will introduce a new dining experience into the town and in the process see the successful recycling of the building.

“The restaurant will bring activity into the area and in the evenings and in the winter months the splay of light from the large windows will illuminate the footpath and contribute to the sense of wellbeing and safety so essential if the town centre is to be enjoyed.”
It has not been confirmed who the occupier of the building will be, but the opening hours will be 10am-11pm Sunday to Thursday and Friday and 10am-midnight on Fridays and Saturdays, according to planning documents.
