Aberdeen dental practice submits plans to create a café in empty basement
The owners of a dental practice near Aberdeen have submitted plans to create a café in the empty basement.
CM Design has sent an application to convert the basement of the building occupied by Ythan Bridge Dental Centre to planners at Aberdeen Council. The practice was renovated a few years ago following flooding and the basement has been empty ever since. Dr Mark Donaldson, principal dentist, explained that he hoped a tenant would come forward to use the space as a retail unit or a café. The plans submitted by CM Design include a terrace with tables and chairs, an indoor area with sofas and tables and unisex toilet facilities.
The application contains plans for the basement, but it also encourages anyone interested in taking on the unit to invest in flood gates for the external door to reduce the risk of damage caused by flooding.
Representatives from Scottish Water, which must be consulted by applicants, have confirmed that they have no objections to the project, and planners at Aberdeen Council will now consider the application.
Anyone who wishes to air their views or object to the proposals is invited to do so by the 7th March.Join this Discussion
