A north east car sales firm could open a new dealership in Turriff if planning permission is approved.
Crudie-based business Crown Motors has submitted plans to Aberdeenshire Council in a bid to open a new showroom on Station Road, Turriff.
The proposals include plans for a vehicle display area, service centre, MOT bay and customer parking.
External and internal electric vehicle charging points would be installed at the site while the showroom would focus on hybrid and electric cars.
The proposed site is located across from an existing tractor and agricultural machinery dealership.
A new footpath has also been proposed for construction from the site to the bus stop on the A947 to provide access to the showroom for pedestrians.
A planning statement issued with the application states that the family-run business is looking to expand their operations” and believe Turriff is the “ideal location to extend their services”.
It adds that the facility would provide new jobs in the area and would “benefit Turriff and the wider Formartine area”.
