 Description
"This half of the city is the more industrial of the two, and contains the docks area which is important to the off-shore oil industry. Shipbuilding has declined here, but there are a number of enterprise zones in East that have fostered a mixture of industries such as textiles, light engineering and carpet-making. Dundee of course was formerly the world’s dominant jute manufacturing city. Accommodation in the seat is also mixed, ranging from the middle-class residences of Broughty Ferry to the council estates of Douglas and Linlathen.
