City councillors are being asked to approve plans to turn a dilapidated factory site in Dundee into a new affordable housing scheme.
Cullross Limited and Caledonia Housing Association have submitted a joint planning application to Dundee City Council to regenerate the former Maxwelltown Works on Alexander Street, in the Hilltown area.
The proposed scheme, designed by JMA Architects, would involve the construction of 57 rented and low-cost homes, consisting of one and two-bedroom flats and two, three and four-bedroom homes.
The council’s new executive director of city development Robin Presswood will recommend to members of the planning committee on Monday night that they approve the plans.
In his report to go before the committee, Mr Presswood said: “The application is for a contemporary development of 57 units comprising of 41 dwelling houses and 16 flats with associated roads, parking, footpaths and landscaping at Maxwelltown Works,
“The site is an allocated brownfield housing site in the local development plan.
“As the proposed number of residential units is more than 50, the proposals constitute a major planning application.
“The proposed development is in accordance with the development plan and is recommended for approval.”
The recommendation for approval is subject to 21 planning conditions, including that details of the proposed finishing material should be submitted to the council before work starts.
Another condition states that street lighting and drainage plans must also be agreed in advance.
