New Dundee FC stadium plans formally submitted

A much anticipated planning application in principle has now been submitted by Dark Blue Property Holdings Limited for the development of a new Dundee FC football stadium at Camperdown Leisure Park, west of the Dundee Ice Arena.

While part of the planned complex encroaches upon the southern part of Camperdown Park, much of the site takes up what were once the National Cash Register recreation grounds (pictured). The remains of the bowling green and tennis courts may still be seen.

See application reference 24/00096/PPPM on the Dundee City Council website.

In addition to the main stadium the application proposes training facilities and pitches, along with other mixed uses. These include housing and apartments, a hotel with ground floor commercial accommodation, a restaurant and an extension to the ice arena, together with new access roads (including a new access/exit from Kingsway West), parking and associated landscaping and engineering works.

The Trust will be scrutinising these revised proposals closely, having previously expressed concerns regarding the access and traffic implications; and the impact of the associated commercial and housing uses on existing district centres and on Camperdown Park.

Comments to the Council have to be submitted by Sunday 24 March.
