Call for urgent progress on replacement West End housing #dundeewestend


As reported in yesterday’s “Evening Telegraph”, we have called on Dundee City Council to make urgent progress on promised replacement housing in Blackness Road, following the demolition of 27 Victorian flats three years ago given the state of their external stairwells.

The original housing at 219-245 Blackness Road was demolished in spring 2021 and at the time the council promised to deliver a £4.5 million project to build 24 modern apartments.

Three years on, despite planning consent, building has yet to commence and we have said the council must urgently make good on its promise to build the replacement housing.

Michael said :

“I have now been a member of the council for almost two years and I have been extremely disappointed with the lack of progress in building the promised replacement Blackness Road flats.

“This appears to be down to the Scottish Government’s cuts to the housing capital budget and I am anxious that the funding gap is filled urgently and the new housing now built as soon as possible.”

The council’s Interim Head of Housing and Construction has advised us :

“We have received a commitment to £215,856 of extra funding as a result of our request (to Scottish Government).

However, as this is £2,029,943 less than we had applied for I am now working with colleagues in City Development to carry out an options appraisal on possible ways forward for this site, with a view to reporting back to the appropriate committee as soon as possible.”

Fraser added, “The decision to demolish the original housing and build modern housing in its place was a difficult and controversial one and it was reluctantly taken because of the significant cost of replacing the external stairwells. Some of the original flats were in good condition but the ground floor bedsits were not.

“We have been chasing up progress on the replacement modern flats for some time and are alarmed at the lack of progress which appears to be down to the SNP Scottish Government cutting housing capital budgets. This needs to be urgently rectified.

“A promise is a promise and the community was given a commitment to 26 new apartments on this site in Blackness Road – these must be delivered ASAP.”

The Scottish Government’s housing capital budget was slashed by some 26% by Depute First Minister and Finance Cabinet Secretary Shona Robison in the government’s latest budget – the Blackness flats project is just one example of the impact on new affordable house building of this decision.

The council’s Interim Head of Housing and Construction further advised us :

“Although I am not able to provide you with a definitive position re this development at this point, please be assured that we are working away on options to deliver these properties. Given the unit costs for this development we are looking at the options for obtaining improved value for money and /or attracting alternative sources of funding.

I will of course update you as soon as I am in a position to inform you of the outcome of our options appraisal.”

Michael concluded, “Fraser and I are adamant that Dundee City Council must make progress on this new build housing project as soon as possible. The site has been sitting empty for three years at a time there are well over 7000 people in the city on the housing waiting list.

“The culprit here is the huge cut to the Scottish Government’s capital budget and it is vitally important that the funding gap for this housing build project in Blackness Road is bridged as a matter of urgency and the new flats built and offered to some of the many people on Dundee’s housing waiting list.”

Getting things done - Corso Street Complex #dundeewestend


Residents recently pointed out to us that tenants with mobility difficulties who use the Corso Street sheltered lounge and access it using the path down from the lock-ups above have no handrail to hold onto walking up and down the slope.

We asked the City Council to consider installing a handrail and the Team Leader (Tenancy and Estates) has responded helpfully as follows :

"Thanks for getting in touch and bringing this to our attention.

It seems like a reasonable request to me.

I cannot think of any particular reason why we would not get this work done."

He has requested colleagues now inspect this and log the necessary work order.

Getting things done - Roseangle playpark #dundeewestend


We have recently received concerns about repairs needed at the Roseangle playpark.

As one resident advised :

"We were in Roseangle play park with my wee boy today, it is sadly in a bit of a state.

The wee train’s steering wheel and seat is gone, the zipline is broken again and a lot of the barriers around the swings are damaged.

I hope it can be fixed before the good weather is here, it would be great having every toy available for the kids to play with."

We raised this with the City Council's environment management and have received the following helpful response :

"Our playgrounds team will assess the damage to the wooden train and the barriers as mentioned in your email below. Thereafter required repairs will be scheduled as soon as possible.

We are currently awaiting delivery of a replacement zip line wire. Once this arrives from our supplier the playgrounds team will fit this bringing the play equipment back into use."

Getting things done - Bankmill Road to Rosefield Place #dundeewestend



Michael is pictured in the path from Bankmill Road to Rosefield Place where residents reported dumped foliage at the south end.

There's also some graffiti back on the wall to the west side of the path - disappointing as it was previously all removed at our request.

We raised both issues with our local environment manager who responded helpfully as follows :

"With regard to your below enquiry re Rosefield Place / Bankmill Road. I have contacted Construction Services requesting the graffiti on the wall to be painted over once more.

Our operatives will attend to remove the accumulation that has been dumped behind the railings at Rosefield Place.

It is likely that this will be addressed over a couple of visits in the coming days but we will uplift and remove."

Getting things done - Perth Road near Sinderins #dundeewestend


Residents recently contacted us about concerns around pedestrian safety crossing the slip road from Hawkhill to Perth Road near Sinderins, to the immediate west of the shops on the north side of Perth Road.

As one resident advised us :

"Many vehicles turn at a reasonable rate, preparing to slow up. Several, however, come around the bend at speed.

Recently my husband had stepped off the pavement when a car sped round the bend with the driver looking right towards oncoming traffic, completely unaware of the pedestrian on his left hand side. This is not the first time this has happened.

I can walk quite quickly, but many folk can’t. For drivers not used to the setup there, there is no warning sign about pedestrians crossing."

We have raised this with the council's road safety team leader requesting warning signage/road markings to make clear to drivers that pedestrians cross at this location.

Getting things done - Blackness Library - an update #dundeewestend

Back in early 2020, Fraser obtained a commitment for Community Payback to repaint the railings of Blackness Library which are in a really poor state.    Unfortunately the COVID pandemic at the time resulted in this work not taking place 

Michael was photographed at the railings recently and - as the photos indicate - the need for work to repaint the railings is now urgent.

We have therefore taken up this matter again with the City Council and will keep residents updated on progress.

Proposal for a Logie 20mph speed limit #dundeewestend


Residents will be aware that we have long campaigned for - at the request of residents - a lower speed limit in the Logie estate, where roads are very narrow and there is a large population of elderly people, particularly on the north side of the estate where the sheltered housing is.

Fraser raised this at the council's former City Development Committee some time ago and this was agreed as a future 20mph project.

The City Council will shortly be consulting on a proposed new 20mph which is rather larger than Logie itself.

Please see the proposed public notice which will be promoted shortly as part of the consultation exercise on the proposal.     

The list of affected streets is highlighted as part of this public notice :
