Controversial plans for flats created to make the most of views over the Tay to the new V&A in Dundee have been submitted.

The previous Netherlea Hospital in Newport could be knocked down and also replaced by 4 blocks consisting of a mix of an overall of 29 one, 2 and also three-bedroom houses.

If the strategies by Sutherland Hussey Harris are accepted, the programmers say service website can start following year as well as be completed in 2019.

However, there is most likely to be some opposition to the plans after locals branded preliminary layouts “horrible” and “like Lego”, and also baulked at suggestions the new residences could cost as much as ₤ 650,000.

The brand-new proposition would see the previous hospital, which closed in 2011 as well as has actually since been targeted by vandals, squashed making means for the development.

Sutherland Hussey Harris stated the strategy aimed to supply “new contemporary homes for local home owners who intend to scale down”.

The business included: “Newport-on-Tay has many large Victorian vacation homes yet few contemporary residences that give contemporary qualities with the large sights across the River Tay towards Dundee.”

Sutherland Hussey Harris claimed the housing systems had been designed to “moderate between public and exclusive area giving citizens the possibility to choose in between the activity of the general public rooms or privacy of private yards”.

However, one comment on the Newport, Wormit and also Forgan Community Council’s Facebook page classified the houses as “horrible concrete productions”, while another said the properties were “possibly not within the reach of a lot of present Newport residents”.
