A vacant Perth city centre church is facing demolition.
The Milne Street building, once used by the Church of the Nazarene, could be torn down to pave the way for a four-storey block of flats.
Perth and Kinross Council has lodged plans to clear the site, which is in part of the city’s conservation zone.
Officers say the building, which dates back to 1957, is degrading and “no longer appropriate for its original purpose”.
The council states that the old church, which was latterly used by mental health charity Mindspace, is “not of any architectural, historical or cultural significance”.
Historic Environment Scotland has said it won’t stand in the way of the proposal. The building was built for the Church of Nazarene to provide a place of worship, as well as office space and a kitchen.
It was built in an historic gap site, surrounded by tenement blocks that date back to the late 19th Century.
A spokesman for Mast Architects, the company leading the project on behalf of the council, said: “The site’s history as we understand it, and as explained in this document, illustrates that there has been a continual process of changes to this site over the past century.”
Mindspace moved out of the site, into new accommodation at Buchan House, in 2016.
