Dundee Eden Project on former brownfield given green light

by | 19 Jun 24 | Commercial Landscaping, Nature & Biodiversity, News

The Eden Project Dundee has been granted planning permission from the City Council for a £130 million development on a former gasworks site in the city.

Plans to create an Eden Project on the East Dock Street site include the conservation and redevelopment of the existing gasholder, which will comprise an exhibition space and planted environment. While other buildings on the site are poised for demolition.

A separate application to create a pedestrian bridge, connecting East Dock Street and the east coast mainline railway, will go before planners later this year.

The multi-million pound project, which was revealed last year, will also include three separate venues, which the Eden Project says will showcase wild landscapes, exhibits, art installations, performances and storytelling.

Chief experience development officer at the Eden Project, Blair Parkin, comments on the decision, saying:

“This is a major milestone for the project and the culmination of years of hard work by the Eden Project team, our partners in Dundee and the community who have engaged with us so generously.”

The Eden Project is working in partnership with Dundee City Council, The Northwood Charitable Trust and the University of Dundee.

The project team includes architect Feilden Clegg, structural engineer Expedition Engineering, M&E consultant Atelier Ten and cost consultant Aecom.
