New township development approved

11 May 2018 | Infrastructure

The City of Windhoek (CoW) recently approved the application for the township establishment and layout of Rocky Crest Ext. 5 and 7.

“Residents can look forward to a tender invitation on these erven within the next two years,” said Scheifert Shigwedha of the CoW.

According to him, while the backlog for residential land cuts across all income groups, the erven to be developed in Rocky Crest will cater for middle-income groups.

Rocky Crest Ext. 5 measures 43ha and will yield 307 erven of which 256 are for single residential purposes. Other developments in the area include a service station, play park and private school. Rocky Crest Ext. 7 measures 21ha and will yield about 190 erven of which 175 are for single residential purposes. Amongst these erven, are two institutional zoned erven which are proposed to be reserved for a convention centre and a shopping complex.

“The development of these two townships incorporated in the City's Strategic Transformation Plan for 2017 to 2022,” he said, adding that the city still faces myriad challenges in addressing the demand for serviced land along with the high rate of urbanisation, unemployment and social inequity.

“To improve the pace of delivering serviced residential land, the City embraces public partnership policies and projects whereby the City engages private entities to meet us halfway for the installation of bulk municipal services,” he said.

He said that Waterberg Investment will partner with the City for the installation of bulk municipal services in Rocky Crest Ext. 5. As per the City's annual budgetary provisions, they will install the bulk municipal services for Ext. 7.
