Dundee Football Club’s proposed move to a new stadium on the edge of the city would also see the development of new homes, a hotel and crematorium, it has been revealed.
Pledging that the 15,000 capacity development on land to the west of Camperdown Leisure Park will be more than just a stadium, the club said space would also be designated for up to 70 flats and 140 houses to the north of the site.
New designs drawn up by city architects Leadingham Jameson Rogers and Hynd which document proposals for the new stadium have also revealed plans for an extension to Dundee Ice Arena and a new crematorium.
Community facilities such as restaurants, a gym, a creche and a 7,500 sq m commercial zone would provide amenities for residents alongside the existing leisure park.
The stadium would be surrounded on all sides by more than 1,000 parking spaces for cars and coaches, and would connect directly to a 100-bedroom hotel.
Access to the site would also be improved with a new slip-road coming off Kingsway West.
Dundee Ice Arena could also benefit from the plans, with a new extension allowing leisure bosses to build a dedicated curling rink.
The club also want to build four training pitches on public land, run in conjunction with Dundee City Council, opening them up to potential use by the general public.
The club is submitting a pre-application public meeting at Dundee Ice Arena on September 22, 1pm – 8pm.
A statement issued by the club confirmed: “Dark Blue Property Holdings Ltd intend to submit an application for planning permission in principle for a new football stadium, training facilities, housing and mixed-use development with associated parking, access, drainage and landscaping infrastructure, at land to the west of Camperdown Leisure Park.
“As part of the pre-application consultation process for the proposed application, the applicant will be holding a public presentation and drop in event at Dundee Ice Arena on Friday September 22 between 1pm and 8pm.”
