A New Era for Ellengowan Estate, Dundee
The redevelopment and modernisation of a Dundee housing estate was announced last week. Read this article to find out more.
The Ellengowan estate was built in 1925 and although popular with tenants, the homes fall below modern standards.
After detailed consideration of both refurbishment and redevelopment options for Ellengowan estate, together with the valuable feedback from residents, the Northern Housing Company Board has decided that redevelopment is the preferred option.
Northern Housing Company, who owns and manages the Mid-Market tenancies at Ellengowan Drive, is part of the Hillcrest Group of Companies.
Hillcrest’s director of development and new business, David Zwirlein said:
“This decision was based on a wide range of criteria and one of the overarching principles of the redevelopment is the desire to offer existing tenants a new home within Ellengowan.
“The redevelopment, which will take around 12 months to plan, will include a range of house types built to modern day standards which suit the needs of current and future generations of Ellengowan residents.
“During the coming months we will continue to work with tenants to ensure that their housing needs are met, as far as possible, within the redevelopment proposals.
“We understand that this decision represents a change for many of our tenants and we are committed to working with residents, and offering support, during both the planning and construction stages of the redevelopment.”
The Northern Housing Company board would like to thank residents for their valuable feedback throughout the consultation.
