A proposal of application notice was published in October 2018 for the future development of site 12. The development has been described as: a Mixed development including offices, hotels, housing and ground floor commercial units (class 1, 2, 3 and Sui Generis) with parking and associated works. The notice has been submitted by Dawn Developments Ltd
Please note that a proposal of application notice is not a planning application – instead this indicates a period whereby developers will refine their development proposal in light of any information received, with a view to submitting a planning application for consideration at a later date.
The notice can be viewed on the Dundee City Council planning portal by using the reference 18/00788/PAN.
Site 12 is located on the shoreline in the eastern area of the Central Waterfront. It benefits from a location overlooking the Riverside Esplanade, Tay Road Bridge access and Waterfront Place with views towards the new V&A Dundee as well as southward over the River Tay towards Fife.
