The Emislaw site planning application (18/00799/FULL) was recently approved by the Development Standards Committee .The project will deliver 38 modern properties, improving the environment and enhancing people’s quality of life.
The Emislaw site is the first of 4 sites as part of the Timmergreens regeneration project. The new development will provide a range of 1 and 2 bedroom own-door flats and 2 and 3 bedroom houses.
Demolition of the garages on the site has started and the demolition of the 32 existing dwellings should be completed within the next couple of months.
The project will also bring improvements to the play park area and to the pedestrian / cycle link.
The construction work on the site is scheduled to start early 2020 and to complete early 2021.
A planning application was also submitted for the Muirton site (19/00255/FULL) and the construction work is also scheduled to start early 2020.
Fraser Path and Newton sites
Planning applications have still to be submitted for the final two housing phases of the regeneration programme. These include properties in Fraser Path, with demolition of the identified dwellings planned to take place in summer 2020, and the construction work during 2021.
Demolition of the identified properties in Newton Crescent and Newton Avenue is planned to take place in the first half of 2021, with construction work to start later in 2021 and to complete during 2022.
Information about the developments are available on the Housing Developments webpage.
Plans to deliver more modern, higher quality properties for our tenants in the Timmergreens area of Arbroath are moving ahead. The aim is to improve the environment and quality of life for people living in the area.
We consulted tenants and other residents in Timmergreens on proposals to improve the area in the summer of 2017. There was overwhelming support for the draft programme, which was approved by our Communities Committee on 20 August 2017. Since then, we have been rehousing the tenants of properties earmarked for demolition
Feedback from local residents on the Emislaw Drive/Spitalfield Place site has helped to shape the final plans for the first site to be submitted for planning approval this month.

Contractors will soon demolish the vacant property at the Damacre Centre. Work is due to begin on Monday 26 February, and, barring any delays, will be completed by Friday 13 July 2018.
A site compound will be installed around 26 February as you will see on the attached map: Site Plan-CDM – 02. The contractor, Gowrie Contracts, Dundee, will make every effort to keep their vehicles in that area.
This work should not affect neighbouring properties, although there will be some disruption.
There may be some risk of dust being blown by the wind towards neighbouring properties and at times there may be some low level noise. Every effort will be made to keep this to a minimum and to ensure works do not inconvenience residents.
Work will take place from Monday to Friday, between the hours of 7.30 am and 4.30 pm with perhaps some occasional weekend working.
We thank residents in advance for their understanding and cooperation. Any questions or concerns either before or during the works, should be directed to Darren Stewart on 01241 435135.
