Whitfield is a residential area in the north of Dundee, Scotland. The area was built in the 1960s to accommodate Dundee's expanding population. A lot of the housing was mid-rise, deck-access flats, innovative for the time, built using the Skarne prefabrication system. It was the largest scheme of its kind in the Uk on its completion.
Between 1989 and 1995 it was one of the four areas chosen for the Scottish Office programme New Life for Urban Scotland. A lot of the deck access housing in the area was demolished as the area was remodelled.
In the 2004 Scottish Index of Multiple Deprivation, Whitfield contained two datazones (average population 1,000) in the most deprived 15% of datazones in Scotland.
In 2004 both of the tower blocks in the area were demolished. As of 2007 the area is undergoing redevelopment as part of a redevelopment plan and the area is seeing a rise in population as vacant properties are being torn down and replaced by popular low rise homes.
