Fresh plans to convert a former masonic lodge in Aberdeen into flats have been tabled.
The Woodside St Machar Lodge 319, based at Western Road, close to Great Northern Road, could be transformed into four apartments.
Constructed from Rubislaw granite, the building shut to members of the masons in 2007 and has been vacant ever since.
Last summer, the Voigt Partnership lodged plans to convert the C-listed property into six flats.
But the proposals were withdrawn due to concerns about parking provisions at the site.
Now the Arbroath-based firm have submitted revised plans, this time for four flats – each with a parking space.
However the site is located inside city’s parking zone three, which means there should be eight provided.
But the developers have said there are reasons why this may not be necessary.
Their planning statement says: “There is off-street parking available on the street.
“The street is not described as congested and the proposal for four flats will not unacceptably add to the congestion.
“There are good bus and cycle routes nearby.”
They have also pledged to ensure the historic character of the building is maintained.
The statement adds: “The proposal is to convert the building into four apartments retaining all of the original building, external walls, roof and features apart from the rear gable and site slapping.
“We believe the proposal makes use of a redundant listed building as a housing development, retaining the character and appearance of the existing building by bringing it into a modern use with minimal alterations to the
external fabric of the building.”
