Dundee social club in the firing line for flats plan
A Dundee social club dating from the 1920’s is to be demolished to allow construction of 12 new flats under proposals filed by Mark Walker Architect.

The Raglan Street property is considered unviable in its present form, prompting plans to start again with a four storey flatted block with south facing balconies.

In their design statement the architects wrote: “The proposal will be finished in yellow / sand coloured facing brick with highlight panels of buff coloured smooth render. The style and pattern of the brick and render to the north elevation reference the period brick built elevations of the buildings to the east of Kemback Street.

“In a similar manner the roof is to be of standing seam metal cladding to reflect the roof of the flatted development of the period building to Kemback Street. Grey composite cladding is employed to highlight the communal entrances & break the mass of brick & render panels.”

A communal amenity space and private gardens for ground floor flats will also be offered.
The social club was built between 1922 and 1926 and remains in use to this day
