A major high street bank has lodged plans to improve the accessibility of a north-east branch.
TSB is hoping to upgrade its premises on Evan Street, Stonehaven, by lowering the the main entrance and installing an internal ramp.
The move is part of a scheme to boost access to branches and a planning statement submitted alongside the blueprints said the bank will also install a sliding door.
It reads: “TSB are undergoing a programme to ensure all branches are accessible by all and Stonehaven is one of a small number of branches that requires modifications in order to provide access.
“This is part of a drive to ensure all branches are accessible.
“The proposal is to modify the existing external door and drop the floor level to lose the step into the branch.
“A new glazed automatic door with push pad controls will be installed.”
