Broughty Ferry flats plan declared ‘invalid’
May 21 2012planning officers at Dundee City Council.
The plans called for the addition of six flats in two new floors above the existing restaurant, a curved frameless glass façade between symmetrical facing brick art deco bookends.
A new south facing façade would have been fully glazed to take advantage of estuary views.
In their design statement Nicoll Russell state: “The listed structure is used to inform the style of the new build elements which are detailed in a nautical contemporary manner, using glass and white render reminiscent of the golden age of the art deco movement.
“This clean contemporary image contrasts with the brick used in the original building but creates a combined composition which fuses material and details to create a landmark development worthy of the setting and a memorable addition to the urban fabric of the Broughty Ferry Waterfront.”
The plans were dismissed after the applicant failed to supply additional information in regard to inaccurate ownership certificates and an incorrect site boundary.
