Plans Submitted for Affordable Housing for Morgan Street, Dundee
Date Posted: 26th of January 2017
Caledonia Housing Association has submitted plans to build 28 new affordable homes at the former Taybank Works site on Morgan Street in Dundee.
If approved the redevelopment of this derelict brownfield site in Morgan Street will see the Association building 10 new flats and 18 houses for rent. The proposed properties, on the site of the former jute mill, have a high quality design with enhanced energy efficiency levels to help minimise Tenant’s energy costs.
The construction of these homes will boost local employment and continue the transformation of the Stobswell area through the redevelopment of derelict areas, whilst providing much needed affordable housing in the area.
This project is one of a number of new developments being considered by Caledonia Housing Association in Dundee over the coming years and will help contribute to meeting one of the key objectives of the Council’s Local Housing Strategy – to provide new high quality affordable housing to meet the substantial demand in the city.
Andrew Kilpatrick, Caledonia Housing Association’s Asset Management Director commented: “Caledonia’s Planning application for Morgan Street Dundee is a continuation of Caledonia’s goals to provide high quality affordable homes for rent throughout Scotland and part of our ambitious drive to build 1,000 new homes across our group partners over the next 5 years.”
