Residents in Dundee have helped shape plans to create a retirement housing development on the site of an old Scottish Water depot.
McCarthy & Stone hoped to create 41 one and two-bedroom apartments for over-60s on land at the junction of Pitkerro Road and Stobsmuir Road.
It has been deemed surplus to requirements, with one plot having already been sold-off for use as a transport museum.
The developer first submitted a proposal back in May, but has heavily revised its plans following a public consultation.
Locals demonstrated support for the build, but residents persuaded the firm to redesign the plans to create a more traditional building that will complement the architecture in the surrounding area.
As a direct result of residents’ suggestions, the development has also been moved back one metre from Stobsmuir Road, while alterations have been made to the roof form and shape of the building to reduce its scale.
Changes have also been made to the materials used in the design of the building, from roof tiles to windows.
Steve Wiseman, managing director of McCarthy & Stone in Scotland, said: “We’ve listened to the community and worked hard to reflect the views of local residents and the planners in the changes we’ve made to the design.
“We’re committed to bringing forward proposals that benefit the local community, and are hopeful this new application will be approved.
“I believe this proposal will provide much-needed housing for older people in the area and make good use of a site that is in danger of falling into disuse.”
The application will be considered by the council later this year.
