Building Programme Looks to the Future26/10/16
Nearly £400 million is set to be invested across Dundee in an ambitious five-year building programme by the city council.
Details of projects to be undertaken between 2017 and 2022 will be outlined to the policy and resources committee on Monday (October 31).
The £387 million programme takes in play areas, schools and initiatives designed to enhance jobs and regeneration.
Meanwhile, an analysis of the delivery of key targets under the current Council Plan show that there are more jobs in the city and that increasing numbers of pupils are going on to positive destinations after they leave school.
Depute policy and resources convener Councillor Willie Sawers said: “The council, its partners in the city and the Scottish Government have been working extremely hard together to put improvements in place for the people of this city.
“This annual review of the current Council Plan identifies a number of successes and highlights why we have extremely good grounds for optimism.
“But the report does highlight that there are a number of areas we need to keep concentrating on and we are all determined to make more efforts on the future.
“That is why I am pleased to see the ambition that is shown in the capital plan to take forward projects that will benefit people in communities across the city.
“School buildings, the V&A Dundee, well insulated council housing and a replacement for Craigie House are among the highlights of this excellent vision for our city.”
