National Performance Centre for Sport at Camperdown - Drop-In Public Event Wed 24 July Landmark Hotel 4-8pm

18 July 2013

Next Wednesday, 24 July, there will be an opportunity for members of the public to attend a drop in event and see at first hand the planning proposals for the National Performance Centre for Sport and Hotel with associated access, parking, landscaping and miscellaneous development. 

This event is being organised by Keppie Design prior to any formal planning application being submitted to the City Council. 

The event will run on Wednesday 24 July at the Landmark Hotel, Kingsway West from 4pm to 8 pm.

 Last week the Dundee bid for the National Performance Centre for Sport was submitted by Dundee City Council in partnership with the University of Dundee; University of Abertay, Dundee; Dundee College; Dundee United Football Club; Dundee Football Club; NHS Tayside and Leisure & Culture Dundee.

Dundee is in competition with consortia in Stirling and Edinburgh for the National Performance Centre for Sport.

Dundee City Council has approved, in principle, £5 million of local authority capital funding to the project.

This would help to provide the capital costs of the centre and its facilities in addition to the £25 million grant that has already been pledged by the Scottish Government to the winning bid city. 

The South East corner of Camperdown Country Park is Dundee’s chosen site to host the National Performance Centre for Sport.
