Strathmore Homes has been granted planning permission to build the three-bedroom houses on brownfield land to the east of Foggyley Gardens, near Lochee.

It represents the second of a possible three stages of redevelopment on the Foggyley estate, which was home to a number of multi-storey blocks until a decade ago.

Work is already under way to build 14 semi-detached and seven detached homes on land to the north of the street, off Harefield Road, after permission was granted in 2016.

Foggyley was historically a part of the Cox brothers’ estate which included the adjacent areas of Clement Park and Beechwood.

After the Second World War, the jute mansions in Foggyley and Beechwood were demolished and the land was developed into housing schemes.
