Dundee FC invite public comment for future stadium vision
September 25 2017
A pre-application consultation has been held by LJR+H Architects at which plans to create up to 210 homes, restaurants, a gym and creche as well as 7,500sq/m of commercial floorspace were tabled.
In a statement the club observed: “The decision to move from the club’s historic home at Dens, is not being taken lightly, but is based on a growing awareness of the present and future limitations of the existing facilities at Dens Park, and their inability to support the evolving needs of a modern football club.
“The ideas outlined in the presentation will also reflect a need to anchor any proposals in a financial reality whereby the creation of a new stadium cannot occur in economic isolation, but must be supported by a robust and diverse range of income generating activities such as those explored on the indicative layouts.”
Opportunities to build a new football training facility and extend the existing ice rink are also being explored with Dundee City Council. Members of the public have until 16 October to express their views after which a full planning application will be filed.
Hearts and Aberdeen are also currently progressing plans for new stadiums.
