Homebase Site sold

PricewaterhouseCoopers, admininstrators of the former Homebase site in Riverside Drive have advised me of the sale of the site at the end of last week :


"I am able to confirm that the sale of the site completed on Friday. The purchaser is H&H Properties (UK) Limited of Dundee."

The "Evening Telegraph" printed my comments about the sale last night - see http://tinyurl.com/homebasesale. It appears from today's "Courier" that the new owner intends to press ahead with the exisiting planning approval for over 200 flats. This is, in my view, a missed opportunity to consider a smaller scale development on a site with superb views across the River Tay. Nonetheless, it is good that the site has been sold, having sat as a target for vandalism for many months.
