Plans for 150 new homes in Broughty Ferry are to be resubmitted following changes to the local development plan.
Dundee City Council’s development management committee rejected an initial bid for the Linlathen site, which had been recommended for approval by council officers, last November.
Kirkwood Homes, the firm behind the proposals, has now lodged a Proposal of Application Notice (PoAN) for the land, which will kick start a fresh round of pre-application consultation with communities.
The company said the scheme would help to meet the “very clear” market demand for new housing in Broughty Ferry.
The new Local Development Plan 2 (LDP2) replaces the current guidelines adopted in 2013 and includes the allocation of greenfield land at Linlathen.
It also says that to support the growth of the city additional greenfield sites will have to be provided at Ballumbie and the Western Gateway to create “flexibility and choice” for the city’s housing market.
The LDP2 has identified an “indicative capacity” for 250 houses at the Linlathen Arbroath Road site – 100 more than Kirkwood is proposing.
The revised plan also describes Linlathen as a principal economic development area.
Colin Crombie, managing director at Kirkwood Homes, said: “We very much welcomed the recent decision by Dundee City Council to include the Linlathen site within the proposed Local Development Plan.
“Our proposals not only complement the objectives of the LDP, but importantly provide an opportunity to meet the very clear market demand for new homes in Broughty Ferry, while also contributing towards the aspirations of the community for the sustainable future growth of the town and the wider Dundee area.
“Over the coming weeks and months, we look forward to working closely with organisations and individuals in the local community, Dundee City Council and other interested parties as these exciting proposals come forward.”
Broughty Ferry community council, which opposed the plans previously, said members would meet at the end of November to discuss their stance.
Spokesman Neil Cooney said: “We had tentatively expected a re-submission by Kirkwood Homes. Our objections were about how the new homes would stretch local services like schools and GP practices, which are now experiencing a lot of use.
“The community council would need to see what the new proposals are before making a decision.
“We would hope to see that our concerns from the last set of proposals were taken into account.
“To give credit to Kirkwood Homes, they are engaging in an open consultation programme.”
