Proposals for a major new housing development on the site of a former Dundee whisky bottling plant have been rejected by councillors.
Persimmon Homes’ application for permission to build up to 90 houses at the former Stewart’s Cream of the Barley plant on Kingsway East was refused at the planning committee meeting.
Councillors had been asked to reject the application by Mike Galloway, executive director of city development, who was attending his final council meeting before retirement.
He had said the proposal would result in the loss of allocated economic development land.
Councillor Lynne Short tabled an amendment seeking to approve the planning in principle, which was defeated by 17 votes to six.
An application to reconfigure land on the City Quay at Dundee One for car parking space, was also knocked back unanimously by councillors.
