The council also aims to improve the streetscape of St Andrew's Street South - which runs at the back of the old post office building - by creating a dramatic new frontage.

The side that faces Cornhill will be enhanced through the removal of a step to improve access and the creation of a second arch that will acknowledge the historic Bell Arcade and also serve the wider Market Thoroughfare.

The council is proposing to deliver affordable housing off-site.
