ALMOST ยฃ1m is set to be spent improving more than 200 city homes if councillors give the works the green light.

Tenders for replacement boilers at houses in the Dens, Blackness and St Maryโ€™s areas and replacement roofs in parts of Charleston are included in the programme.

Kevin Cordell convener of Dundee City councilโ€™s neighbourhood services committee said: โ€œIt is important that we make sure our housing stock continues to meet the standards that we expect in the 21st century and that takes a considerable amount of investment.

โ€œThis money will ensure that the residents of these properties have energy efficient and effective boilers and well insulated roofs.โ€

Worth a total of ยฃ989,505, the work is recommended to go to Dundee City Councilโ€™s contract services division.  If approved it will start at Dunholm Terrace and South Road  later month going through the year with the last to finish being the boiler replacements in Corso Street in November.

The neighbourhood services committee meet on Monday (April 22).
