A Bridge of Don garage is set to undergo a major revamp after plans to spruce up the petrol station were approved by the city council.

The Esso station on the A92 Ellon Road will also see the addition of a new Greggs bakery as it was granted permission to expand its retail space.

Situated near the former AECC exhibition centre, the revamp was proposed by developers MFG after it was deemed that the site was no longer fit for purpose.

In the plans, the current retail space, which houses a Londis shop, will be further expanded, while the Greggs, complete with a food-to-go area, will sit adjacent to the retail store.

The popular bakery chain currently has multiple sites across the city, including two on Union Street and a drive-thru in Westhill.

Outside there will also be the addition of four electric vehicle charging spaces to the west of the current forecourt which developers say will increase the range of services available to customers.

The planning report adds: "To facilitate the extension, minor forecourt works will take place. There include adjustments of kerb lines, and the addition of a new, larger refuse compound area for waste and refuse to the side of the shop, removal of storage container, man hole relocation and existing tank vents and offset fills to be removed and relocated."

Opening hours would remain 24/7 Monday to Sunday, with the site also operating with eight full-time and six part-time employees.
