New hospital and schools planned for Havana

09 November 2017 | Infrastructure

A new hospital will be constructed in the Havana informal settlement after the City of Windhoek (CoW) approved an application for land submitted by the Ministry of Health and Social Services in 2014.

Councils’ approval comes with recommendations that 15ha land purchased for N$18.9 million, be used for the construction of the Khomas District Hospital that provides 24-hour care and provides at least 50 beds.

Although the hospital can be electrified by the Havana Distribution Substation depending on the availability of power capacity, it is recommended that a portion of the land be subdivided to accommodate an electrical substation.

While the ministry requested that Council donates the land, this appeal was rejected since the City can develop other parts of the city with income generated through the sale of land.

Approval was also granted to the Ministry of Education, Arts and Culture to construct two secondary schools at a combined purchase price of N$15.2 million for 6ha in Havana.

The City said that adequate provision must be made for parking and drop-off zones at the school sites, which must also incorporate bus bays and taxi drop-off facilities.
