Care home application lodged for Broughty Ferry hotel site

Plans have been submitted to demolish a Dundee hotel to make way for a 54-bed care home.

Working on behalf of care provider MeallmorePlanform Architects propose to knock down the Victorian villa at 8 Dalhouse Road in Broughty Ferry, which was latterly in operation as the Cambustay Hotel.

The replacement property will be arranged over three floors to minimise encroachment on established gardens.

Planform stated: “The linear form of the building ensures the distance from site boundaries are maximised and meaningful amenity space is provided for residents. Orientating the building in this way ensures the width of elevation on Dalhousie Road is minimised in keeping with the residential character of the area.

“Vertical breaks created using projecting bays act to break up the elevations into smaller units. Feature projecting bays, clad in metal cladding, drop in level to 2 storey height elements to create an interesting focal point and further act to reduce the apparent overall height.”
