The plans have been approved by Aberdeenshire Council.

Plans to change the use of the former Crimond Medical Centre on Logie Avenue East to business use has been granted by Aberdeenshire Council.

Planning documents reveal that the existing external appearance of the building will not be modified and there will be no changes to car parking on the site.

Floor plans show that the building will have offices, store rooms, meeting rooms, an assembly area and two laboratories.

One business, Aroma Academy, has already agreed to occupy the premises and will use the space to develop and produce Sensory Training Kits.

A second potential tenant has also been identified.

The application had received one letter of support which said the development would be “great news for the area”.

Council planners stated the change of use “ensures the continued use of a vacant building” and added the development would “not cause any adverse impacts on the wider area”.

Their report added that with the medical centre having been relocated and the site being vacant, a new use for employment purposes could be supported.
