INTRODUCTION

Welcome to our Consultation Website.

Thank you for visiting this online consultation regarding our exciting proposals for a major residential-led mixed use development at Monifieth North.

In normal circumstances, we would have been keen to welcome members of the public and interested parties to a public exhibition, to showcase our proposals in person and to get your valued feedback. However, due to ongoing restrictions in response to COVID-19 and, in line with current guidance and regulations from the Scottish Government, we are holding an online consultation instead.

The site was actively promoted for residential development during preparation of the current Angus Local Development Plan by Barratt North Scotland and our partners, as part of a wider masterplan with areas of land to the north-east of Monifieth. Instead, the land at Victoria Grange to the west was allocated for planned expansion of the town, alongside the continued identification of an opportunity for the redevelopment of the former Ashludie Hospital site to the south. Now that those developments have been (or are soon to be) completed, and the current Angus Local Development Plan is due to be replaced, we believe the site identified at Monifieth North provides a key opportunity for future growth. We would value your input and feedback at these early stages, prior to the submission of any formal planning application.

INTRODUCTION

The Proposal.

This consultation seeks your views on a proposed northern expansion of Monifieth, which would see the development of around 300 homes between the Ashludie Hospital redevelopment and a proposed public park towards the A92.

The development would include a mix of residential properties with 25% affordable housing and space for non-residential uses, which could take the form of community facilities or local convenience retail space. Supporting infrastructure would also be provided to integrate the development with the surrounding area, with the option for a new link road to connect Victoria Street and Broomhill Drive. Barratt and David Wilson Homes wish to build upon the success of their recent development at neighbouring Victoria Grange and very much view Monifieth as an excellent location with strong demand for new family homes.

Economic benefits:

Support for over 450 direct jobs and 900 indirect jobs across our sub-contractors and suppliers during construction.

Generating construction spend of over £30 million, with a further wider economic spend of £81 million, helping support the local economy and the high street.

Delivering additional Council Tax revenues of approximately £510,000 per annum.

Generating Developer Contributions towards education, healthcare provision and community facilities

Work with local business including, amongst others, DJ Laing, Enigma Industrial Services, Pitkerro, Forster Roofing Services.

Whilst further details on the layout and design of the development are still being prepared, we would welcome your initial feedback on the proposals to provide input in that process.

We have submitted a Proposal of Application Notice for this development to Angus Council, which has been given the reference 21/00661/PAN. The format of this consultation has therefore been approved by Angus Council.

At the end of the consultation, we will prepare a Pre-Application Consultation Report to summarise your feedback and explain how it has been used to influence the proposals. The Pre-Application Consultation Report will be submitted to Angus Council in support of a future planning application for the site.

This consultation will close on Monday 27th September 2021.

ABOUT US

We are a major local employer with over 250 direct employees, most of which are site based.

For every home built an equivalent of 3 jobs are supported directly and indirectly. Many of our employees are based in the Tayside area, taking advantage of our hybrid working policy. We recruit apprentices across all trades and sustain that over the lifespan of the development and we run a successful Ex-Forces Recruitment Programme.
