Capital Investment Strategy04/12/17
A ten-year vision to build on the success of Dundee construction and infrastructure projects will be considered by the council’s policy and resources committee on Monday December 11.
The Capital Investment Strategy links together a number of developments that will assist in policy areas like work & enterprise, children & families, healthcare & wellbeing and community safety and justice.
Future planning for the school estate, green spaces, housing investment, smart cities digital and stronger communities are among the areas under focus.
The council runs a five-year capital plan, with the current version sitting at investment levels of nearly £350 million. While including these details, the Capital Investment Strategy illustrates the council’s longer-term thinking for programmes.
The document also details a number of projects which are earmarked to take place under the Tay Cities Deal including a Comics Centre, the redevelopment of Dundee Contemporary Arts, an aviation skills partnership and the decommissioning opportunities being explored by the Dundeecom partnership.
Council leader John Alexander said: “This strategy is a clear outline of the ambition we have for Dundee and illustrates how hard we are working to realise it.
“We are maintaining the regeneration of the city and ensuring that all of our pupils are learning in quality surroundings.
“There are a number of aspirations through the Tay Cities deal that the wider partnership of the area want to realise because they are hugely exciting and will help to accelerate the momentum that has been built up.
“We are also thinking innovatively about strengthening the city’s infrastructure for years to come, and this will include the delivery of Wi-Fi and 5G readiness in the Central Waterfront with the Scottish Futures Trust.
“We are absolutely determined to build a fairer and smarter city for the future and take on the challenges that exist for the benefit of our people.”
