Ormiston Crescent Turf Cutting Ceremony
Dundee housing convener John Alexander cut the turf yesterday on the last phase of the regeneration of the Ormiston Crescent area of Whitfield, 25 years after the project started. The £3.9m development of 32 new homes for rent by Angus Housing Association is being built by Hadden Construction.
This site was previously partly occupied by the last 3 remaining Skarne blocks in Ormiston Crescent and by open space, an unused car park and lock-up garages. Earlier this year, the old Skarne blocks were transferred at no cost by Dundee Council to Angus Housing Association and were demolished in preparation for the new houses.
