Backies Cafe Proposals

By Jane Cruickshank / November 1, 2021

A JOINERY workshop at Stonehaven’s Backies car park will be transformed into a cafe – if proposals submitted to Aberdeenshire Council get the go-ahed.

Donald Junnier is seeking permission for the change of use of the workshop to a Cafe (Class 3 Food and Drink), along with external alterations (part retrospective) and the provision of an outdoor seating area at Stores, Old Pier.

According to the application’s design statement, Mr Junnier hopes to provide a range of snacks, breakfast items, lunches and light meals – but the premises would not be licensed.

Outdoor seating would be accommodated in the premise’s current parking area, with measures in place to ensure good separation from the car park.

Full details of the application are available online, along with a facility to comment.
