Comment on the City’s Strandfontein Coastal Node – Development Concept<span> <h2 class="sectHeading">​​​​​​​​​​About​​​​​​​</h2></span> <p> The City administers a coastline of approximately 260 km, making it the largest coastal metro in South Africa in terms of sea frontage. Cape Town, like all coastal areas in South Africa, has a very strong and remaining Apartheid Planning legacy. This legacy historically restricted opportunities for many ethnic groups to own land close to the coastline. </p><p> We are committed to identifying appropriate coastal spaces along our coastline that will connect previously disadvantaged communities on the Cape Flats and West Coast to the coastline. </p><p>The <a href="" target="_blank">Coastal Urban Edge</a> - as part of our <a href="">Spatial Development Framework</a> – spatially defines appropriate coastal spaces (<a href="" target="_blank">coastal development nodes</a>), which can accommodate a mix of future residential, recreational and commercial development consistent with existing coastal development. </p><p> Strandfontein was one of the areas we identified as a suitable coastal development node, which meets both social and environmental factors.</p><h4>A rapid planning study was completed in June 2022 to:<br></h4><ul><li>Understand the area’s development informants. </li><li>Determine possible future development options for the area. </li><li>Propose a preferred development framework concept, which we can use to inform future decision-making, including the existing pavilion area, resort area and surrounds.</li></ul><h4>Access the documents:</h4><ul><li><a href="" target="_blank">Summary Overview</a><br></li><li><a href="" target="_blank">Final Concept / Development Framework Report</a><br><a href="" target="_blank">Annexure A/B - Engineering Services Reports</a><br><a href="" target="_blank">Annexure C - Transport Impact Assessment</a><br><a href="" target="_blank">Annexure D - Environment Screening Report</a><br><a href="" target="_blank">Annexure E - Coastal Processes Report</a><br><a href="" target="_blank">Annexure F - Market Assessment and Motivation</a><br><a href="" target="_blank">Annexure G - Feasibility Model Report</a> </li><li><a href="" target="_blank">Baseline Report</a><br></li></ul><p>In terms of section 17 of the Local Government: Municipal Systems Act, Act 32 of 2000, you may submit comments and suggestions relating to the draft development concept.</p><h2 class="sectHeading">Comment period</h2><p>Submit your comments from <strong>7 November – 31 January 2023</strong>.</p><h2 class="sectHeading">Submit your comment</h2><p>Comments, inputs or recommendations may be submitted via the following channels:</p><p> <strong>Online</strong><br> <a href="" target="_blank">Submit your comments online</a>.</p> <span> <div class="notification with-heading dark-copy pink bg-light-grey"><div class="graphic with-border"> <i class="info note">​​​</i> </div><div class="desc"><h4>Please note</h4><p> Our Public Participation Unit will assist you if you would like to submit comments but have a disability, or are unable to read or write.
