Dundee City Council has outlined plans to invest almost £400 million on infrastructure projects across the city over the next five years.

The £387m programme to be undertaken between 2017 and 2022 takes in play areas, schools, the V&A Dundee, a replacement of Craigie House and initiatives designed to enhance jobs and regeneration.

Details of the projects will be outlined to the council’s policy and resources committee on October 31.

Depute policy and resources convener, Councillor Willie Sawers, said: “The council, its partners in the city and the Scottish Government have been working extremely hard together to put improvements in place for the people of this city.

“This annual review of the current Council Plan identifies a number of successes and highlights why we have extremely good grounds for optimism.

“But the report does highlight that there are a number of areas we need to keep concentrating on and we are all determined to make more efforts on the future.

“That is why I am pleased to see the ambition that is shown in the capital plan to take forward projects that will benefit people in communities across the city.

“School buildings, the V&A Dundee, well insulated council housing and a replacement for Craigie House are among the highlights of this excellent vision for our city.”
