Dundee logistics hub filed for planning

Plans for a 13,684sq/m logistics hub to the north of Dundee have been broached by West Ranga Property Group.

Working with Cooper Cromar Architects the applicant has selected a site at Claverhouse Industrial Park East for the build, which includes 668 van storage bays and a 232 space car park.

In a statement, the applicant wrote: "The Application comprises a circa 13,684 sqm GEA logistics building complete with office and ancillary space, supported by external access, yardage, parking and storage areas.

"The proposed site, north of Jack Martin Way, Claverhouse Industrial Park East, is designated for industrial use within the City Plan for Dundee."

Finished in metal-faced insulated composite wall panels with blue feature areas the warehouse will sit 40m below the 16th century Powrie Castle with a strip of mature trees providing additional screening.

Not blowing the budget on tree planting then? Best thing in that photo is the new social housing in the background.

I wonder what sort of power supply that place is going to need to power up 668 electric vans and 232 Electric cars?...oh no,'s just a big shed with a thousand parking spaces!
What we really need is a big worldwide climate conference to happen in Scotland to really help us focus and get to grips with what's happening. That's the sort of thing that would be a real game changer and definitely not just a two week photo opportunity after which we return to business as usual.

On the positive side, it's good to see logistics hubs being considered north of the Central Belt - there's a concentration of them along the M8 corridor - Newbridge, Livingston, Bathgate, Shotts - ideal for Glasgow and Edinburgh but that means more road miles and more pollution when they deliver to Perth, Dundee, Aberdeen and beyond.

The image must have been produced before the architect and landscape architect were appointed! Surely this can’t represent the finished development.

If it provides decent jobs for the local area then its a win win.
