Plans to convert Dundee’s Fernbrae hospital into flats approved
Plans to convert the former Fernbrae Hospital in Dundee into 22 new homes have been approved by Dundee City Council.
About this development:
- Authority:Dundee City
- Team:Patience and Highmore Architects (architect), S1 Developments (developer)
Property firm S1 Developments will be building the houses, which will see the demolition of some of the buildings at the site located on the Perth Road.
The Georgian villa known as Fernbrae House will be retained and converted to create four flats. The surrounding buildings will be demolished and replaced by 13 properties.
A terrace with five houses will be integrated into the landscaped grounds behind Fernbrae House.
Broughty Ferry-based architects About Planning said: “The proposed new east and west apartment blocks have been designed to reflect the strong character of the existing stone listed villa while allowing it to remain the primary form at the front of the development.”
The firm said that the demolition of buildings behind the villa and the introduction of the terrace of houses will create a “more private communal amenity area”, in contrast to the larger garden grounds to the south.
Planning was granted, subject to conditions including full details and samples of the finishing materials being given the green light by the council before work can begin.
Private artwork must be approved for installation at the site by the planning department.
Reports on landscaping, noise pollution, drainage, electrical vehicle charging points and cycle storage are also required, The Courier reports.
