The Proposals – Give Your Feedback

Please note that we are currently updating the designs following feedback received during late 2019/early 2020. Our online survey for providing feedback is closed while we do this. An updated masterplan for the route will be available for comment from early April 2020.

Please note, the designs relate to proposals from Castle Approach in Broughty Ferry to Monifieth. Path improvements from Grassy Beach to Castle Approach will be constructed as part of the Flood Protection Scheme, due to commence from early 2020.

Please continue to leave your comments and ideas on our Placecheck map for other improvements to active travel routes and infrastructure that you would like to see in Broughty Ferry and Monifieth.
