A former gasworks on Dundee’s waterfront is to be transformed into a huge eco-garden as an offshoot of the Eden Project in Cornwall.

Redevelopment of the derelict industrial site, a mile from the V&A museum, is the latest in ambitious plans to move the tourism dial in the city.

Eden Project Dundee has secured support from the Scottish Government, the city council and Dundee University.

A deal has been secured with the two owners of the site – National Grid and SGN – following a six-month feasibility study into the project which could be provide an annual £27 million boost to the city, creating 200 direct jobs.

A series of walled gardens is planned to be created at the brick-walled site on East Dock Street which would be designed around the city’s historic trades.
