Revised Angus Housing Association development plan approved

Angus Housing Association has gained planning approval for its resubmission of plans for 21 new affordable homes on a former Dundee school site.

Revised Angus Housing Association development plan approved

The former St Vincent’s Primary School located on Pitkerro Road was demolished in February 2019 after pupils moved to the new North East Campus in Whitfield.

The plans for the site include a number of three and four-bedroom homes and six units adapted for wheelchair users and those with additional needs.

Angus Housing Association was awarded planning consent in July last year but changes were made to some of the designs meaning it had to be re-approved.

The designs from KDM Architects also include car parking, electric car charging points and a bicycle storage area.

Ron McArthur, asset manager at Angus Housing Association, told the Evening Telegraph: “I am very pleased. There will be a mix of properties including a project for Dundee Health and Social Care Housing for wheelchair units.

“There is a huge demand for wheelchair housing and special needs housing so we are pleased to be able to deliver this project.

“I hope this will go some way to alleviating some of the problems and waiting for specialised housing.

“We are now in the middle of the procurement process to get a contractor on board but hopefully that will be resolved in the next four to six weeks and we can be on site around May time.

“We will also make an application for funding to the Scottish Government before the end of March so we can sail ahead with this project.”
