Approval is being sought for housing on the site of the former Tay Rope Works in the West End Lanes conservation area of Dundee.
F & H Developments, from Crieff, has applied to the city council for permission to build.
Members of the council’s planning committee will be asked on Monday to approve the proposal.
The developer hopes to build five three-bedroomed houses and two three-bedroomed flats with parking, amenity space, a new access and environmental improvements at the site.
The land, at 51 Magdalen Yard Road, was originally occupied by the Tay Rope Works which dated from the mid-19th Century.
The area, as required by rope manufacturers, is extremely long and narrow.
A report to go before the committee states: “The site is predominantly vacant and derelict with a southern elevation to Magdalen Yard Road comprising a category C listed facade for the original Tay Rope Works building.”
The developers are also asking for permission to demolish and reconstruct the facade.
The report adds: “There is a long history of planning applications for residential development on all or parts of the site dating back to 1993.
“The present proposal for five houses and two flats was originally granted permission in September 2011.
“It was renewed in March 2015.
“The present one effectively seeks a further renewal of the proposals granted planning permission in 2011 and 2015.”
The report adds: “The application fails to fully comply with Policy 9 (Design of Housing) in relation to amenity space provision. There are material considerations which weigh-in in support of the application.
“It is recommended it be approved subject to conditions.”
