Dundee councillors are to be asked next week to approve plans for housing on the site of the former Tay Rope Works in the West End Lanes conservation area of Dundee.
F&H Developments, from Crieff, has applied to the city council for permission to build nine properties at the site.
in May, the planning committee resolved to grant planning permission for five houses and two flats.
The land, at 51 Magdalen Yard Road, was originally occupied by the Tay Rope Works, which dated from the mid-19th Century.
The area, as required by rope manufacturers, is extremely long and narrow.
The applicant is seeking permission for five houses and four flats.
A report to go before the committee states: “The site is predominantly vacant and derelict with a southern elevation to Magdalen Yard Road comprising a category C listed facade for the original Tay Rope Works building.”
It adds: “Thirteen objections have been received from neighbours raising concerns in relation to the loss of boundary walls, design of the proposals, overshadowing and impact on privacy.
“There is a long history of planning applications.”
