Plans have been unveiled to transform a former north-east cadet centre into two new homes.
The development would lead to the existing training hall and firing range on Highfield Walk Lane in Turriff being demolished.
It was once used by the army cadets to hone military skills such as marching and shooting.
But the building has not been used for five years since the cadets moved to a new centre.
Proposals for the new homes have been put forward by Dundee-based Andrew Black Design Limited on behalf of the Highland Reserve Forces and Cadets Association.
Drawings show the properties would have three bedrooms, gardens and a driveway.
Scottish Water said there would be no objections raised about the proposals.
A design statement submitted alongside the plans, which have been handed to the council, outlines what needs to happen to make it reality.
The document said: “It is proposed to demolish the existing training hall and firing range and construct two semi-detached three bedroom houses, with an internal gross floor area of 1,000 square feet approximately.
“Taking account of an associated bin and bicycle store for each house, the building footprint on the site will reduce from from 42% to 24% of the available site.
“The proposed development density would be very similar to many of the properties surrounding the application site.
“It is anticipated that the existing water supply and drainage arrangements can be retained.
“The proposed arrangement on the site will also create 1216 square feet and 1259 square feet of soft landscaped useable garden space where there is currently only hard surfacing.
“The existing site access would be maintained, and a new one created in south eastern corner of the site, adjacent to the existing access to Kinmhor on the neighbouring site.”
Army cadets moved to a converted cadet base at St Congan’s Hall, Rectory Road in Turriff in 2013.
The facility is used by the Army Cadet Force and the Air Training Corps.
