Green light for revised flats plan at old Dundee mill

Plans to transform a former Dundee jute mill into flats and offices have gained planning permission.

A revised scheme to turn the old Pentlands Works on Brown Street into a mixed-use commercial and residential development has been approved by Dundee City Council, subject to conditions.

The application, submitted by Hiddleston and Feist Architects on behalf of Ramsay’s Properties Ltd, proposes creating rented accommodation on the first, second and third floors, while retaining commercial and light industrial use on the ground floor.

The conditions along with the approval include details and seeing samples of the proposed finishing materials of the development submitted for written approval, details of the proposed windows, rooflights, doors, as well as repairs to existing windows being submitted to the council for written approval, the ground floor restricted to business use only, and more.

The application includes 14 two-bedroom flats and three superior one-bedroom flats as well as a gym and storage facility on the third floor.

Ian Hiddleston, of the architects, told the Evening Telegraph: “We are definitely pleased that we have received planning permission and listed building consent and thank you for the co-operation from the council.”

Ian added that the next step would be to progress to get a building warrant, and that it would be a few months before they would be able to start work on-site.
