A BID to create an ice-cream kiosk in Thurso has been granted permission by Highland Council.

The application was made by Mr Ismail Dogrulmaz and Mrs Derya Ulgu and relates to the Esplanade Shelter at Pentland Crescent. Consent was also give to make alterations to an existing external wall.

The building lies on the northern edge of the town overlooking the beach and is single storey with slate roof tiles and painted rendered walls. A small extension was previously approved in 2007 on the west elevation.

A council report stated: "The proposal is considered to comply with the Local Development Plan and non statutory guidance. The proposal will not adversely affect the appearance of the existing building or the character of the surrounding area; nor will it have a detrimental impact upon neighbouring amenity. There are no third party concerns."

The application was approved.
