Dundee village plans approved

Plans for a village of 230 new homes in Dundee’s Western Gateway have been approved recently by the city’s council, it has been revealed, news that may be of interest to those planning to buy a house in Scotland.

The proposals for South Gray Village were put forward by Gladedale housebuilders, which has welcomed the decision.

Work on the site is expected to begin in the early months of next year, with 194 three, four and five-bedroom detached houses, with garages and parking space, as well as terraced houses and flats.

A village green will be created and a local shop will also be placed in situ.

"We believe this is an exciting development which will bring a variety of much needed housing to the west of Dundee," says Jason Wallace, managing director at Gladedale North East Scotland.

"We believe that this will be a flagship development for Gladedale over the next few years," he added.

Elsewhere in Scotland, Raploch is undergoing a new phase of development, which may be welcome news to househunters looking for new Scottish property.
