Camperdown Park is a much-loved green space that sits on the northern edge of Dundee. Within the park there is a Horticultural Nursery and nearby glass house that have traditionally supplied the plant requirements for Dundee’s civic spaces, from trees and shrubs to be planted in parks and open spaces, to annuals for bedding and hanging baskets.
Due to resource rationalisation there is now much less need for this scale of production and so Dundee City Council (DCC) are looking at innovative ways to develop the 7 acre site, if possible using a social enterprise approach.
DCC approached Dundee Social Enterprise Network to help take this forward, and DSEN have identified and engaged with a range of interested organisations and individuals.
The partners have agreed that carrying out a feasibility and options appraisal will inform the process of creating a sustainable initiative. To this end funding from the Big Lottery, Dundee City Council and Community Innovation Fund has been secured.
The funding will enable the employment of a Business Development Officer to deliver a feasibility study and reasoned option appraisal, as well as a comprehensive business plan.
