Residents of a Dundee housing estate say they are unhappy at still being in the dark about whether they will get to stay in the area.
A planning application to replace the 128 cottage flats in Ellengowan Drive with a mix of houses and flats has been submitted to the city council.
When the proposals were first announced about a year ago, residents voiced fears they may lose their homes and demanded to know whether they would be guaranteed a house on the new development.
A year on, they say they are still in the dark since their landlord, the Northern Housing Company, has yet to confirm how many new homes will be built.
Resident Doreen Robertson said: “I’ve been here for eight years and absolutely love it.
“It’s the unknown that worries us — it’s very stressful not knowing if we’ll get to stay or not.
“So far, we’ve seen two sets of plans, but nobody can actually give us any straight answers. Even if we get to stay, we’ll be decanted somewhere for who knows how long until the new homes are built. It’s very unsettling.”
David Zwirlein, Hillcrest Group director of development and new business, said: “After consultation with residents at Ellengowan Drive, in January the Northern Housing Board confirmed the preferred option was to redevelop the estate.
“The exact number of properties contained within the redeveloped estate is yet to be confirmed, but this will be determined once the architectural designs have been finalised.
“We are working with residents on a one-to-one basis to discuss the next stages, including decanting and alternative housing options while the improvements are made.”
