Broughty Ferry Development Trust - Tayside & Fife

Established 2009

BFDT has great ambitions for a new facility on the Castle Green to replace the existing dilapidated bathers' facilities, and prevent the town's key development location being passed over to private hands. Having secured lottery funding to develop the idea, the Trust has persuaded the Local Authority to back its proposal for an innovative, semi-subterranean, eco-building next to the castle, which will incorporate café facilities, changing/showering/toilet facilities, a community area, and an interpretation/exhibition space. The c.£2m price-tag means this ambition may be some way from realisation, and BFDT engaged The Pool to assist its strategic thinking on options. Other Trust initiatives concern the town's heritage, and include improving / providing access to the town's historic Fisherman's Graveyard, ensuring the reinstatement of 'Barometer Cottage' at the harbour, and seeking funding to restore/ safeguard Victorian street lamps
