Plans for a new development of 40 homes have been approved by the city council.
Ogilvie Homes has been given the go-ahead to build the new houses on an area of land east of Barns of Claverhouse Road.
The development will feature a mix of three-bedroom semi-detached and detached homes.
It will also offer four-bedroom detached properties, with a mix of driveways and garages for parking.
A new cul-de-sac will be created running parallel to nearby John Grahame Avenue, with an existing footpath between the new street and Silver Button Yard retained.
Approving the proposal, council officers said Ogilvie’s plans aligned with local development objectives.
However, they have attached a number of conditions to the plan – including that the new development must have public art on display – which the housebuilder must comply with.
A decision notice said: “The proposal presents an opportunity to redevelop the application site and enhance links between the site and the surrounding area.
“The proposal will make a positive contribution to the regeneration objectives of the area.”
A single letter of objection, which raised concerns about antisocial behaviour, was dismissed on the grounds that the issues were “not of sufficient weight to justify refusal”.
The plan was submitted to the local authority in March last year, and is the housebuilder’s second attempt at the project.
Ogilvie submitted a similar proposal in 2015 for 35 homes on the land, including three-storey townhouse-style properties.
The previous application was also approved.
However, the Glasgow firm has since revised the plans to accommodate 40 homes and a “more interesting streetscape”.
A statement from Ogilvie Homes said: “We would advise that we have further approvals to secure.
“All going well, we would hope to start on site in late summer.”
The news comes hot on the heels of another housing development being given the green light.
A total of 44 new homes are to be created on the three borders of Dundee, Angus and Perthshire as part of Springfield Properties’ project to build an entirely new community at Dundee’s Western Gateway.
