In 1998, the Dundee Partnership started preparation on a masterplan to re-integrate the Central Waterfront area with the City Centre. The masterplan seeks to realise the exceptional opportunity provided by the Waterfront and prepared a shared vision for the area to create not only a distinctive identity and sense of place, but also provides a robust framework for investment & decision making.

Following a major consultation exercise in 2000 and 2001 a consensus view emerged; in particular that the project needed to happen agreement on its content and physical form. The Dundee Partnership approved the masterplan in 2001.

The masterplan outlines the main components of the Central Waterfront project:

  • The extension of the city centre down to the waterfront
  • Improved provision for walking, cycling and buses
  • The reduction of the effect of cars and parking
  • The creation of a pair of east/west tree lined boulevards
  • The provision of a new rail station and arrival square
