Plans to turn an Aberdeen shop into a cafe have taken a step forward.

Former men’s store Brook Taverner on Union Street has been vacant since closing in July and was recently given planning permission to turn into a cafe.

Proposals were submitted by Kirk Harrison on behalf of The Healthy Eating Co to convert the premises back in July.

However, the firm has now launched a building warrant application to create the new eatery.

The work, if approved, would see a new server, toilets, food storage area and seating constructed on the site.

According the documents submitted to Aberdeen City Council the work would cost £15,000.

Under the terms of the planning approval, cooking operations will be restricted to the reheating and hot holding of pre-cooked soups and the heating of sandwiches.

A decision could be made before February.
