An gas and oil firm believe that a house in disrepair near Elgin’s Cooper Park can be the “ideal” location for holiday accommodation.
Heatcare Oil and Gas Limited have lodged plans with Moray Council to change the use of the property on 13 North College Street and redevelop it.
It is hoped that if the plans are approved, the new holiday accommodation can be a hotspot when visitors return to the region.
The plans outline that small alterations will be made to enlarge the existing bathrooms slightly to bring them to modern standards.
It also proposes demolition of the rear modern garage structure to allow space for two off-street car parking spaces.
The old kitchen will be replaced with a modern one and utility extension which will be “sympathetic” to the building’s setting.
Director Darren McLeod believes the project can be “perfect” for visitors coming to the region to visit the tourist attractions and landmarks.
Previously the firm had planned to turn the property into offices however it never worked due to the parking situation.
He added: “We wanted to make the property into something nice and we see it as the perfect place for visitors to Moray to stay as it is right across from Cooper Park.
“I think for a holiday let it is ideal for a location right across from Cooper Park and the High Street is on the doorstep.
“For people coming into Elgin looking to stay for a few weeks, it is pretty perfect and at the heart of Moray.
“This is the first holiday home we have done, but we have revamped several properties over the years.”
Mr McLeod hopes his project can be completed in four months if given the green light.
