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.

We are preparing proposals to improve the route and also the links between the residential areas and town centres in Broughty Ferry and Monifieth and the beachfront, to enable more people to make use of the improved route.

This website will be the main source of information throughout the project. Many people have already provided suggestions to us through the website or through consultation events earlier in 2019. These have influenced a set of draft proposals, plans of which will be published for comment on this website soon.

We intend to develop a package of measures by mid-2020 to submit as a request for funding to Sustrans’ Places for Everone programme.
