Detailed planning permission is being sought for a major housing development on the site of Aberdeen's iconic Marcliffe Hotel.

The five-star hotel - a popular venue for wedding receptions and functions - has been at its North Deeside Road venue since 1993.

Housebuilder Stewart Milne wants to demolish the hotel and create 189 properties.

The owner, Stewart Spence, is retiring, and sold the site.

Meanwhile, the former Victoria Road Primary School in Torry has been earmarked for redevelopment.

Barratt has submitted a proposal of application notice with Aberdeen City Council to build more than 50 homes at the site.
