More than 40 new homes could be built on the site of the former Mossgiel Primary School in Dundee.
Plans have been lodged with Dundee City Council by Abertay Housing Association for 44 properties on Ballochmyle Drive.
The site – near the back of the Morrisons supermarket in Linlathen – has been empty since Mossgiel Primary was closed in 2007 and later demolished.
It came two years after the council had announced plans to merge the school with nearby Mid Craigie Primary.
They came together to form the new Rowantree Primary on Birks Terrace.
The move was part of a £90 million public private partnership scheme, which also saw the construction of the new Grove Academy building and three other primary school mergers.
After the schools combined, both the Mossgiel and Mid Craigie buildings were demolished, and Dundee City Council announced plans to use the Mossgiel site for owner-occupied housing.
In 2010, the council received permission to use to 20% of the school’s former grounds in its Alloway Gardens development, however the rest of the site remains unused.
Special apartments and staff accommodation
The new development would include special apartments for those with additional support needs, alongside staff accommodation.
A single street would run through the development, between Ballochmyle Drive and Alloway Gardens.
According to documents submitted by Abertay, 75% of the homes would have three bedrooms or more.
A similar application for the same number of houses on the same site was put forward by the firm last August, however it was withdrawn in March – though it is unclear why.
Abertay Housing Association has been contacted for comment.
