part­ner­ship with other lo­cal pub­lic and pri­vate stake­hold­ers by De­cem­ber 2022.

Work with pub­lic and pri­vate sec­tor part­ners will also be un­der­taken to ex­plore dis­trict heat­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties in and around Men­zieshill and Cold­side by April 2023.

In the re­port, direc­tor of city devel­op­ment Mike Gal­loway ex­plains that a num­ber of op­por­tu­ni­ties have been iden­ti­fied at Lochee, Lin­la­then and the Dighty cor­ri­dor.

He adds: “These projects have been sub­mit­ted as ap­pli­ca­tions within stage one and the coun­cil will be no­ti­fied of the out­come by June.

“The Lochee area has been cho­sen as it has a di­verse range of build­ings and con­struc­tion types, and vary­ing so­cioe­co­nomic fac­tors.

“It is a mixed use area sim­i­lar to oth­ers in Dundee so el­e­ments are likely to be repli­ca­ble. “Fuel poverty lev­els are high. “The neigh­bour­hoods of Lochee and Men­zieshill are cur­rently in the process of re­gen­er­a­tion which will in­clude new de­vel­op­ments in the near fu­ture.

“This will also pro­vide the op­por­tu­nity to test the project in a de­vel­op­ing com­mu­nity.”

Work is due to start this year in Kirk Street, Lochee; Mike Gal­loway.
