“Dundee needs a mix of housing types and I am delighted to see how different developments have been completed across the city.

“New housing helps to deliver our vision to make Dundee a more attractive place to live and work.

“The Housing Land Audit is a fascinating insight into the city’s economic progress and I would urge anyone who has an interest to get involved with the consultation.” 

Councillor Lynne Short, depute convener of neighbourhood regeneration, housing and estate management, said, “Our recently published Strategic Housing Investment Plan outlines how Registered Social Landlords play a vital part in delivering for the people of Dundee by ensuring that the supply of affordable accommodation continues to increase.

“Going forward, the new national planning framework NP4 will assist in efforts to provide more affordable housing in the city.”
