Plans have been submitted to turn a former bank on Perth High Street into a restaurant with function rooms.
The bid has been made for the former HSBC which closed in July before the building was put up for let.
These plans are the first for the building after the bank’s departure from Perth.
Drawings submitted alongside J&E Shepherd’s application show how the new restaurant could look.
The ground floor would see minor changes, adding in a counter/reception area and clearing the bank’s furniture to make way for a dining room.
Upstairs, all of the existing enclosed offices on the first floor would be removed to make way for the function rooms.
The second floor would be untouched.
Locals have until September 16 to comment on the plans.
Scottish Water has not objected to the application but asked that a capacity review be carried out.
Perth’s HSBC bank was one of 69 to close with the company blaming online banking.
The company said that less than half of its customers visit its branches.
The closest branch is in Murraygate in Dundee.
The news followed a further 82 closures last January.
