Dundee garage submits extension plan for car showroom

Specialist Cars Skoda on Myrekirk Road.

A Dundee car dealer is hoping to expand its dealership and service offering at its existing site beside the Kingsway.

Specialist Cars Skoda, on Myrekirk Road, has put forward proposals to create an additional showroom covering 129 sq m.

Plans have suggested that up to three cars could be exhibited in the new space if the proposal is approved by city planners.

A statement and diagrams included with the application suggest the new showroom would be a “standalone” operation that could expand the types of car the garage can sell.

The dealership is operated by the John Clark Motor Group, who also wish to install a 102 sq m workshop extension that would be used to service and repair light commercial vehicles in the same facility.

Approval of the plans would result in the loss of 12 parking spaces around the existing garage, which would also have its internal layout altered to complement the proposed changes.
