Building for the future with £350 million Capital Plan13/11/18
A near £350 million Dundee building programme for the next five years is set to be outlined.
The city council’s capital plan includes projects including the Waterfront, additional nursery accommodation, Menzieshill community centre, improvements to Camperdown Park, affordable and wheelchair housing and the Regional Performance Centre for Sport.
Council leader Councillor John Alexander said: “Our investment in construction projects across Dundee provides jobs and stimulates the economy while assisting in our drive to make Dundee and smarter and fairer city for all.
“While major projects like a number of schools, our new railway station and V&A Dundee have been completed, there is still more we can do to improve the infrastructure of the city and provide new opportunities for people.
“The expansion of nursery hours is leading to a specific building programme and we are grateful to funding from the Scottish Government that will allow this to happen.
“I am keen that our communities feel the benefit of this massive investment in as many ways as possible.
“The transformation of Dundee has made huge progress in recent years but, as recent events have shown, we cannot let up in our efforts to keep improving the city for all.”
The capital plan covering 2019-24 will be discussed by Dundee City Council’s policy and resources committee on Monday November 19.
