West End Honda has submitted plans to redevelop its Dundee showroom.
The single site business has applied to Dundee City Council to redesign the car showroom forecourt by demolishing part of a building, creating additional customer parking and amending the car sales display area, reports the Evening Telegraph.
In the submission, planning consultants Suller and Clark said: “At a time when many car sales businesses are choosing to move to large purpose-built retail warehouse accommodation on the outskirts of towns, West End Honda is committed to Broughty Ferry.
“They consider this to be the most sustainable and appropriate location, serving their local customers and supporting local businesses.
“The aim is to provide an increased number of customer parking spaces, improved ease of access for customers and an improved car display area.
“The reconfiguration will provide an enhanced road frontage to Queen Street, allowing additional cars for sale to be displayed.
“The continuing investment in Broughty Ferry by this long-established family business will bring a significant benefit to the surrounding area and provide continued support for the surrounding local business which benefit from spin-off trade.”
The building earmarked for demolition was previously an electrician’s garage before it was purchased by West End Honda in the 1980s.
