Planning bid for 43 homes on former Dundee school site
Detailed plans submitted to Dundee City Council’s planning department indicate that the homes, situated at the former Charleston Primary School on South Road, will be a mix of terraced, semi-detached and detached homes with two or three bedrooms.
There will also be cottage flats with ground-floor wheelchair provision, to ensure that those with additional needs are adequately supported.
Staff from Abertay Housing Association held a consultation on the latest plans in November last year and said the proposals had been warmly received.
In a report included with the application, the firm said the new homes would be a good fit for the area due to its proximity to Charleston Community Centre and nearby shops and schools.
“The close relationship of community centre, library, shops, play areas and primary school all increase and justify the sustainability of the proposal.
“The proposals were met positively, with no objections raised by any visitors. The community generally welcomed the redevelopment of the site.”
Charleston Primary School was demolished after pupils were relocated to the new Camperdown campus in 2013.
