Plans have been submitted to the council detailing a development which would see 41 homes built in Claverhouse.
Construction firm Ogilvie Homes have handed in the proposals, which will likely go before the council’s planning committee for consideration this year.
The proposed site is located to the east of Barns of Claverhouse Road, and is encompassed by homes on John Grahame Avenue, Atholl Glen Yard
and Silver Button Yard to the south, Mill O’ Mains primary school to the north and Claverhouse Industrial Estate to the east.
The firm had originally planned to build townhouses on the site but said following consultation with the local authority at a pre-application meeting a more interesting “street-scape” could be created.
Three and four bedroom detached and semi-detached houses are now planned for the site.
The local primary school at Mill O’ Mains has a capacity of 317 and a current roll of around 290, meaning it is at 92% capacity according to a council report.
In a design statement, Ogilvie Homes said: “We were particularly
keen to retain the communal square to the lower portion of the site and the
village green to the upper portion of the site.
“We feel these areas will provide a positive open outlook for the majority of the houses and will also provide fully usable areas of open space for both residents and the public alike.
“The proposed development of this site has evolved following our pre application
meeting with Dundee City Council in March 2017 and we have continually
refined our proposals thereafter to utilise the advice and suggestions obtained.
“We have also worked closely to the guidance contained…in the local development plan to ensure compliance has been achieved through the design process.”
A similar development to build 35 homes on the nearby site of a former office block was approved by the council in 2015.
