PLANNERS have given the go-ahead for a furniture showroom to be built on the outskirts of Elgin.
Members of Moray Council’s Planning & Regulatory Services Committee approved the application by local retailers, Grampian Furnishers, at a public hearing this morning.
The application received three objections, which were detailed in a report to councillors.
However, the planning committee upheld the recommendation of Moray Council officers that permission should be granted for the demolition of Waulkmill House and outbuildings, building of the two-storey furniture showroom with café, which extends to almost 3,000m2, and parking for 110 cars.
Following the submissions, Cllr Marc Macrae proposed a motion to approve the application, seconded by Cllr Donald Gatt.
Cllr David Bremner proposed the application be refused, seconded by Cllr Amy Patience.
Cllr Macrae’s motion was carried six votes to two.
Voting for approval were Councillors McLean, Feaver, Gatt, Laing, Macrae and Wilson, while voting against were Councillors Bremner and Patience.
