Another development outside Windhoek

05 November 2018 | Infrastructure

Yolanda Nel - An environmental impact assessment will be carried for another development south of Windhoek, slated to be established on Portion 1 of Farm Gross Haigamas no 447.

The development entails roughly 20 residential portions, a buffer zone, a street portion and the remainder of Portion 1 of the farm. It is located some 30km from the capital, towards Rehoboth and is located directly northeast of Omeya and is close to 779ha in extent.

Green Earth Enviromental Consultants have been appointed to attend to and complete an environmental impact assessment and environmental clearance certificate to finalise the town planning procedures.

According to a public notice, Portion 1 is zoned as rural residential with approved consent for a Nature Estate. “It is the intention to subdivide Portion 1 into 20 residential plots which will be about 3ha in extent,” the notice read.

Interested and affected parties are invited to register in terms of the assessment process to give input, comments and opinions regarding the proposed project. A public meeting will only be held if there is enough public interest, and only those registered will be notified of the possible public meeting.

A locality plan of the site is displayed on the town planning notice board in the customer care centre of the Windhoek Municipality.

The last date for comments and registration is 19 November.
