Dundee City Council announce City Quay dock ambition
Dundee City Council has unveiled a tentative vision for a new dock at City Quay, potentially allowing cruise ships to berth at the heart of its redeveloped waterfront.

Subject to private sector backing the scheme could see the city’s famous HMS Unicorn frigate relocated to serve as its centrepiece to draw the maximum number of visitors to the city.

The marina is the most eye catching feature of a new masterplan for the area which includes a new V&A outpost, five star hotel and redeveloped railway station.

Will Dawson, convener of the city development committee, said: "There is already a considerable amount of good work done in Dundee and the surrounding area to encourage tourism and offer visitors a positive experience while they are here.

"The plan proposes taking this to the next level through extensively promoting the city's brand, enhancing the visitor experience and developing closer links between the organisations working in the industry."

The proposals will be presented to councillors at a meeting of the city development committee on Monday.

Is it anticipated that the dying central core of Dundee will act as the catalyst to entice hoardes of cruise passengers to disembark ?

Real missed opportunity to make the HMS Unicorn enclosure look like a big glass bottle!

Do Dundee City Council know something the rest of us don't? Is this tentative vision to be completed before or after pre-2014 independence vote- if after, do they have inside data of a rigged game that will preserve the union?
Why does the union jack look marginally bigger than the St Andrews cross- subliminal messaging? A coercive cipher?
