Dundee approves two new housing developments
Members of Dundee City Council’s planning committee granted full consent for 40 new homes proposed for a brownfield area on Haddington Avenue in the Whitfield area.
A total of 13 houses were approved in phase one of the development while another 27 were approved in phase two of the plans by Glasgow-based developer John Jack.
A report before the committee, which recommended approval, said phase one would create three two-bedroom homes and 10 three -bedroom properties to the north of The Crescent community centre.
The second phase would help meet the need for affordable housing in the area with plans for a mix of social housing for rent.
The grassy area off Haddington Crescent is the proposed site for the homes.
Elsewhere Strathmore Homes has been granted planning permission to build 20 three-bedroom houses on brownfield land to the east of Foggyley Gardens, near Lochee.
It represents the second of a possible three stages of redevelopment on the Foggyley estate, which was home to a number of multi-storey blocks until a decade ago.
Work is already under way to build 14 semi-detached and seven detached homes on land to the north of the street, off Harefield Road, after permission was granted in 2016.
