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, Dundee City and Angus Councils are working together to develop proposals for how the coastal route can be improved, not only from the Grassy Beach to Broughty Ferry Castle stretch alongside the flood defence works, but also from the Castle to Monifieth. 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.

Earlier in 2019, many people provided suggestions to us through this website or at local events. These have influenced a draft set of proposals to improve the route and also the links from the residential areas and town centres in Broughty Ferry and Monifieth, to enable more people to make use of the improved route. We intend to develop a package of measures by mid-2020 to submit as a request for funding to Sustrans’ Places for Everyone programme.

Our draft proposals are now available for comment. We want to hear your views on the designs for how to improve the coastal path and connections to it. Visit the Give Your Feedback page to view the plans and to leave your comments in our survey.

Visit the News and Events page for more details on engagement events that will be taking place during late 2019/early 2020, and keep an eye on the Councils’ and local media channels for more information.
