    Dundee this afternoon announced more details about their proposed new stadium at Camperdown.

    A statement was released on the official website on behalf of Dark Blue Property Holdings and Leadingham Jameson Rogers + Hynd Chartered Architects.

    “Dark Blue Property Holdings and Leadingham Jameson Rogers + Hynd Chartered Architects are delighted to advise that they have submitted screening and scoping inquiries to the Planning Department at Dundee City Council regarding the construction of a new stadium and associated development on open ground adjacent to Camperdown Leisure Park,” read the club statement.

    “A further Pre-Application Notice will be shortly submitted to DCC, triggering a period of public consultation prior to a formal Application for Planning Permission in Principle for the project in December 2017. It is anticipated that preparation of full detailed designs4016_PL02RevA.thumb.jpg.57eeb21d313a68bc45da993ae10c110b.jpg for the site and stadium would then follow in spring of 2018.”

    Former Dens director Bob Hynd,  of Leadingham Jameson Rogers & Hynd Architects  expressed delight over his firm being appointed architects for the development.

    “We have now been in discussion with Dundee Council regarding the concept of a stadium on part of this site for over a year and would like to thank them for the assistance they have given us.

    “When Dundee Football Club were originally formed in 1893, they played their games at West Craigie Park.  They then moved to a new ground at Carolina Port adjacent to the Docks in Dundee.  In 1899, Dundee moved to their current home at Dens Park and we are delighted to be involved in what we hope will be the development of their new home for the future.”

      Since joining on an initial loan until the end of January, Leitch-Smith has netted five times so far for the Dee.

      "There's has been discussions taking place between the two clubs and A-Jay's representatives about potentially extending his loan to the end of the season," said Shrewsbury chief executive Brian Caldwell
      "From A-Jay's point of view, we can see why it would be beneficial to him as he has started the last four games for Dundee and managed a goal and an assist in his last game before the winter break.
      "Dundee seem keen to keep him so it's in the interest of all three parties to get this resolved."
