Caledonia proposes affordable housing for Morgan Street, Dundee
New development for Caledonia Housing Association
Caledonia Housing Association has submitted plans to build 28 new affordable homes at the former Taybanks Works site on Morgan Street in Dundee.
If approved, the redevelopment of this derelict brownfield site in Morgan Street will see the association building 10 new flats and 18 houses for rent. The proposed properties, on the site of the former jute mill, are of a high quality design, with enhanced energy efficiency levels to help minimise tenants’ energy costs.
The construction of these homes aims to boost local employment and continue the transformation of Stobswell through the redevelopment of derelict areas, whilst providing much needed affordable housing in the area.
This project is one of a number of new developments being considered by Caledonia Housing Association in Dundee over the coming years and will help contribute to meeting one of the key objectives of the council’s Local Housing Strategy – to provide new high quality affordable housing to meet the substantial demand in the city.
Andrew Kilpatrick, Caledonia Housing Association’s Asset Management Director, said:
“Caledonia’s planning application for Morgan Street Dundee is a continuation of its goals to provide high quality affordable homes for rent throughout Scotland and part of our ambitious drive to build 1,000 new homes across our group partners over the next five years.”
