Plans to turn a former Baker Hughes office into a private medical practice have been put to a local authority.
The proposals, submitted by RJM Architectural Design on behalf of ROC Health Services to Aberdeenshire Council, would see a change of use for the building on Peregrine Road in Westhill Business Park if accepted.
The current health practice premises is beside the application site and hopes to relocate the business into a larger area.
A statement provided by the architect firm along with the application states: “ROC Health are an evolving business and now have an opportunity to expand the business furthermore and offer a wider range of services to its clientele.
“This needs larger facilities and the current building they operate out of is constrained and restricts them from expanding.
“During the period of ROC Health operating from their existing premises there has been no complaints from any of the surrounding properties including the housing beyond the 5-metre tree belt on the side to the west.”
The applicant also hopes to build an external chiller and a screen fence at the Westhill site.
Aberdeenshire Council is aiming to make a decision on the plans by May 11.
The proposals are open to consultation online and any comments can be made by members of the public via the council’s website until March 25, at which point the consultation process will end.
