Plans for new phase of Dundee housing development revealed

A rough outline of the new phase for Dykes of Gray.

Proposals for the next phase of development at Dykes of Gray in Dundee have been revealed.

Springfield Properties has registered a planning application notice (PAN) with Dundee City Council highlighting the developer’s intention to submit detailed plans for the next phase of homes at the new village.

The plans are part of a wider project to build 365 homes along with a play area, retail space and offices, as approved by the development management committee in 2015.

Springfield homes have not yet announced how many new homes would be built as part of the latest phase, but said the number would be decided after a public consultation.

The proposals will be available for the public to view and comment on at the Doubletree By Hilton Hotel  on September 13  between 2pm and 7pm.

Locals are being encouraged to give feedback on the outline designs.

Springfield Properties Group Architectural Director, Mark Hamilton, said: “Dykes of Gray is progressing well.

“Over 100 families have moved in, stylish flats are being built around the village centre, public art exhibition will soon be in place, the playing field is already proving popular and a village cafe will be opening shortly.

“Although Dykes of Gray is just a 10 minute drive to the centre of Dundee, when you’re there you feel like you’re in the countryside.

“As you approach the village the dry-stone walls and contemporary homes create an identity for Dykes of Gray and this is strengthening as the village grows.

“The interest we have had for the homes at Dykes of Gray has been great, the residents are already becoming a community and we want this trend to continue in future phases.

“We encourage home owners at Dykes of Gray and the wider area to come along, speak with us on the 13th and share their views on our vision so we can work together to continue to make Dykes of Gray a great place to live.”
