Consultation on Blackness development area20/01/16
THE FUTURE of one of the city’s economic development areas is to come under the spotlight next week.
City council planners are hosting a drop-in consultation on Wednesday (January 27) looking at options for the Blackness General Economic Development Area.
Will Dawson convener of Dundee City Council’s city development committee said: “As part of the process that will shape the next Dundee Local Development Plan we want businesses, land owners, residents and other stakeholders to share their views with us on the ideas and options for improving the potential of the Blackness General Economic Development Area.
“The consultation process will consider a planning policy approach aimed at bringing vacant, derelict or underused land and buildings back into productive use, as well as improving employment opportunities and productivity.
“It also highlights the potential to create a more vibrant and high quality place by improving the quality of the built environment; strengthening the existing character and identity; increasing connectivity; and making the area more attractive, safe and welcoming.”
Consultation on the Blackness GEDA will contribute to the wider Main Issues Report consultation, which discusses key planning issues and informs the preparation of the next Local Development Plan.
The Blackness GEDA drop-in event will take place at Verdant Works on Wednesday (January 27), from 12 noon to 7pm.
Planning officers will be on hand to outline the options for the area, discuss any issues and gather as many thoughts and ideas as possible from attendees.
