About the project

Dundee City Council and its partners are moving ahead with designs for the Broughty Ferry Flood Protection Scheme.

As part of this, we are developing proposals for how the coastal path can be improved, not only from the Grassy Beach to the Castle stretch alongside the flood defence works, but also from the Castle to Balmossie Rail Station/ Dighty Burn.  We want to create a continuous, off-road walking and cycling route that can be enjoyed by people making longer-distance journeys on the National Cycle Network 1 and many more for local shorter walks and rides.

We are preparing proposals to improve the route but also want to hear from local people about other improvements that they would like to see made, in particular how to improve links between the residential areas and town centre in Broughty Ferry and the beachfront, to enable more people to make use of the improved route. 

We are also working in partnership with Angus Council who would like to know what improvements can be made in Monifieth to enable those travelling from Monifieth and beyond to better access the coastal path.

This website will be the main source of information throughout the project.  Following the feedback we receive, we intend to publish draft concept designs for improvements to the coastal path, and seek feedback on them.

We intend to develop a package of measures by mid-May to submit as a request for funding to Sustrans’ Places for Everyone programme.
