A new £21 million regional sports centre in Dundee looks set to get the go-ahead from the city council.
Plans for the proposed centre in Caird Park are being recommended for approval.
City councillors will be asked on Monday to approve the plans, despite the council having received 12 letters of objection.
A report to go before the development management committee states that the proposal satisfies the requirements of the local development plan.
It adds that there are no material considerations that would justify refusal of planning permission.
The centre will provide a training and competitive venue for regional clubs and squads and the provision of training facilities for a local senior football club.
The application is recommended for approval subject to 41 planning conditions.
These include that one of the new pitches will be surfaced with a synthetic pitch designed and constructed by a recognised specialist pitch contractor. A new grass pitch will also have to be designed by a specialist contractor.
But objectors are worried about the impact on wildlife, the lack of footpath provision and safe crossing over the Kingsway.
The report concludes that the concerns of the objectors are not supported.
