The sites of former primary schools in Dundee have been earmarked to make way for new social housing.
Two applications have been submitted for the former grounds of Whitfield Primary School – one for 30 homes and another for 10 houses and eight flats.
Broughty Ferry firm KDM Architects submitted the plans on behalf of Dundee developer George Martin Builders and Angus Housing Association respectively.
The firms are waiting on the application to be granted by Dundee City Council before progressing further.
Another application for the land at the nearby Longhaugh Primary School, which was demolished in March this year, has also been lodged — which would bring a further 32 new homes to Dundee.
The housing was requested by Dundee Health and Social Care Partnership.
The former site of St Lukes and St Matthews RC Primary School could also see 40 new properties built as the KDM Architects made an application for the site earlier this year.
The schools have been replaced by Ballumbie Primary School, which opened in 2011.
Considerations such as wheelchair accessibility has been incorporated into the plans.
The firm believe all the applications, if granted, will bring some much needed social housing to the area.
A spokesman for KDM Architects said: “There is a lot of demand for social housing at the moment.
“We are preparing a few more application for all over Dundee, including Lochee, that we will be putting in soon.
“The houses for the current applications cover a wide range of options for people, up to four or five bedroom places for families.
“It’s a good use of the land the school used to be as well. With the new school in the area, social housing using that land in a really good way is ideal.
“We hope to have construction work begin before the middle of next year. That all depends on how quick planning permission is granted and then we would have other considerations to sort out, but assuming that all goes well the work will begin in the early to middle of next year.”
The housing projects received some funding from the Scottish Government’s Strategic Housing Investment Plans (SHIPs), which aims to bring more housing in “key strategic priority sites”.
