Thumbs down to Camperdown stadium proposals

Dundee Civic Trust has considered the planning application in principle (24/00096/PPPM) for construction of a new football stadium and other works at Camperdown.

We recommend the application be refused in that the proposals are unacceptable, particularly in context of the following points:

  • the planning requirements of the national planning framework (NPF4) and the local development plan (LDP2);
  • traffic safety and congestion;
  • the unsuitable siting of the hotel, crematorium and residential development;
  • the unambitious plans for renewable and sustainable energy;
  • the use of part of Camperdown Park.

What are the opportunities and barriers involved?  Come and find out at the V&A on Friday 19 April 2024. This event has been organised by Dr Husam AlWaer from the University of Dundee and the Urban Design Group.
