I had raised the concerns with the University of Dundee (who at that time still owned the site – it has since sold it) and the City Council as planning authority.
In November, I attended a meeting of residents about the site – held at Menzieshill Parish Church . It had been arranged between the Chair of West End Community Council and the developer who had purchased the site (and their architects), prior to a planning application being submitted.
Yesterday, I received the following update from a planning officer:
“I talked to the architect this week on the above subject and have been advised that the applicants are still considering their options for the site and have, to date, not instructed the submission of any formal planning application for the development of the site.”
I have therefore asked the planning officer if the developer can be asked to undertake a tidy-up of the site meantime.
