Home Group submits plans to complete Dundee regeneration project
Home Group has progressed plans for the latest phase of development at Dundee’s Mill O’ Mains.
About this development:
- Authority:Dundee City
- Team:Home Group (developer), JTP Architects (architect)
Architecture practice JTP has submitted proposals on the housing association’s behalf to Dundee City Council for up to 50 new homes on Hebrides Drive.
The mix of apartments, houses and special needs accommodation will form the fourth and final phase of a regeneration programme of 300 energy efficient homes in the outer suburb, with the first three phases already completed.
If approved, the new properties will be built with an estimated completion date of July 2019.
A design statement from JTP states: “Mill o’ Mains, Phase 4, is located along a strip of land sandwiched between Forfar Road (A90) dual carriageway and Hebrides Drive, which forms a defined perimeter around the bulk of the estate.
“It is split into two distinct sites, A and B, by an existing petrol station compound and the ramped springing point of the pedestrian bridge link to the nearby Fintry estate. Both sites were previously developed for housing.
“Demolition of all three-storey apartment blocks took place in 2017 and the sites are now vacant and covered with grass.”
Site clearance has already taken place.
