Springfield’s village plans for new homes in Dundee submitted

Posted 23 April 2014

Leading Scottish homebuilder Springfield Properties has registered plans for 228 new homes at South Gray, within the Western Gateway area of Dundee.

The development, which is estimated to be worth in excess of £150m, could create over 100 new jobs, and has been developed in consultation with the local Council, and forms the first part of a new village at South Gray.

Sandy Adam, chairman of Springfield Properties said: "The site, which is west of the Kingsway and by Dykes of Gray Road, has been identified for development for over 10 years. This proposal has been a result of detailed discussions with Dundee City Council and the public, and delivers what the area and community needs and wants."

The collection of two- to five-bedroom homes proposed for the development will be highly energy efficient, and the latest in cost-reducing efficiencies will ensure they are less expensive to run than traditional homes.

Springfield planner Sandra Lindsay added: "Public consultations in January helped to influence the plans for South Gray. In response to this feedback, we have incorporated a large amount of green space in and around the development, including a play area and football park, with footpaths linking to the residential areas.

"We are taking design inspiration from the surrounding villages and applying the latest techniques in energy efficient build design. As with all of our homes, every owner can choose to personalise their house via our Choices programme, making decisions about everything from the colour of paint on their walls, to where the walls themselves are positioned, right through to the look and location of their kitchen sink."
