Dundee City Council has announced plans to invest almost £4 million into improvements to multi-storey properties across the city.

The works comprise of the replacement of lift car installations, general and emergency lighting, CCTV installation and upgrading of controlled entry systems involving blocks at Whorterbank, Lansdowne, Kirk Street, St Mary’s and Hilltown.

The local authority has already invested £16m introducing district heating and improving the energy efficiency of the buildings, which house over 1,000 tenants.

Housing convener, Councillor John Alexander, described the blocks as an integral part of the council housing stock.

He said: “We have already invested £16 million into our multis. This illustrates our clear commitment to improving these properties.

“Our tenants currently enjoy homes which meet the Scottish Housing Quality Standard, but we are in no way complacent about that and will continue to invest in the housing stock.

“Our commitment to tenants is clear and progress is ongoing through our ambitious plans to drive up standards. We want all of our properties to stand the test of time and to be enjoyed by families for decades to come.”

Dundee City Council’s housing committee will discuss the possible improvements on Monday.
