MOSSEL BAY NEWS - The Louis Fourie Corridor and the area west of Heiderand comprise the only remaining vacant land in the urbanised area of Mossel Bay that could provide an integrated solution for a wide variety of housing and social infrastructure.
The challenge in this area is to create a sustainable, living environment that will comply with the principles of the national spatial planning legislation (SPLUMA) in terms of social integration and social justice, which is acceptable to all the communities surrounding the area.
The area concerned comprises the vacant land west of Heiderand, south of the Louis Fourie Road and east of Paradise Coast development.
The municipality has appointed a multi-disciplinary team to investigate and develop creative ideas for a future integrated and high density urban area on this land which will cater for people from all communities and a variety of income groups. The team has to investigate appropriate land use options, physical environment constraints, infrastructure requirements, community values and expectations and tenure arrangements.
The outcome will be a broad spatial and urban design framework adhering to the principles and values of the community of Mossel Bay regarding the development. The framework will be used as a guide for future detailed planning of the area.
The municipality invites the Mossel Bay community and interested groups or organisations to participate in the above mentioned initiative.
Public meetings, where proposals will be presented and explained, will be held at the following venues from 17:30 to 18: 30 on the following dates:
- 13 June: Voortrekker Community Hall, 61 McKinnery Street, Heiderand.
- 12 June: Dana Bay Community Hall, A Distans Street, Dana Bay.
