A proposal to convert a former care home in Banff into a house has been granted by Aberdeenshire Council.
The application was submitted to the local authority to redevelop Valeview, 35A Bridge Street, into a four-bedroom home.
The plans were lodged by Arvind Gunput of Heckmondwike, West Yorkshire.
In its report the council's planning department had no issues with the proposal.
It said: "The planning service is satisfied that the proposal complies with relevant policies contained within the Aberdeenshire Local Development Plan 2017, in that the proposed development is acceptable in principle, as there would be no adverse impact on the vitality and viability of the Banff town centre; and the development would not have a negative impact on the amenity of the surrounding area and the character and appearance of the Banff conservation area.
"Therefore, the planning service is in a position to support this application."
The Valeview Care Home has been closed for a number of years and provided supported living for adults with learning disabilities.
The plans for the three-storey building outline there would be no physical changes to the building.
They show the home will have four bedrooms, three bathrooms/toilet, two studies, kitchen, dining room, games room, three living areas/family room and a store room.
In its decision Aberdeenshire Council approved the application as it complied with the relevant policies.
