Public Participation workshop on Spine Road Local Spatial Development Framework<p>​The Spine Road Corridor represents a road that is extremely congested, and is subject to pressure from a multitude of land uses and activities in its reserves. <br></p><div>The road suffers from informal encroachments, poor integration between the various transport modes, very little to no provision for Non-Motorised Transport (NMT) facilities such as walking and cycle lanes and also degraded infrastructure problems. </div><div><br></div><div>Thus, in short, the Spine Road Corridor currently does not function optimally from a transport and services perspective, and could be improved to the benefit of the local community. The Spatial Planning and Environment Directorate is initiating a process to engage local communities to collaborate in the drafting of a Local Spatial Development Framework for the area. </div><div><br></div><div><ul><li>The City has, therefore, initiated the upcoming public participation workshop for the Spine Road Development Corridor to encourage inputs to draft such a plan. The purpose of the LSDF would be:</li><li>To provide policy alignment for the area and incorporate changes in City policies, strategies and plans</li><li>To provide local level policy guidance and a development vision of the Spine Road Development Corridor for land use and other related decision-making</li><li>To provide guidance on growth management in the area</li><li>To enable property owners to capitalise on their locational advantages to help eradicate poverty in the area</li><li>And to facilitate the establishment of small-scale business enterprises that are broadly compatible with the residential neighbourhood and the mobility functions of Spine Road<br></li></ul></div><div>‘There is a need to review the overall development concept of the Spine Road Corridor and explore what more can be done to develop it. The purpose of this workshop and review with the public is to strengthen the City’s integrated transport plans and positively contribute to improved mobility and socio-economic functioning, while at the same time addressing current congestion, crime and other social-ills associated with the area.</div><div><br></div><div>‘The purpose of the workshop on 23 April is to create a space where City officials can collaborate with the local community and businesses to discuss questions, brainstorm, identify problems, and come up with proposed solutions around Spine Road. This is an opportunity for residents to provide feedback and cite their personal experiences of the area. We further want your perspective and ideas on the development of this area,’ said the City’s Deputy Mayor and Mayoral Committee Member for Spatial Planning and Environment, Alderman Eddie Andrews.</div><div><br></div><div><strong>Details of the public participation workshop are as follows:<br><br></strong></div><div><strong>Date:</strong> Tuesday, 23 April 2024<br></div><div><strong>Time:</strong> 12:00 to 15:30</div><div><strong>Venue:</strong> Khayelitsha Training Centre Auditorium,</div><div><strong>Address:</strong> 1 Phendula Crescent, Eyethu, Khayelitsha</div><div><br></div><div>For updates and more information regarding the Spine Road Corridor Local Spatial Development Framework, email: <br></div><div><br></div><div>A high resolution map is available <a href="">here. </a><br><br></div>2024-04-09T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#52067ea8-f5f1-4932-89ca-f948312f8164;L0|#052067ea8-f5f1-4932-89ca-f948312f8164|Khayelitsha;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GPP|#335f4547-2e97-4fef-8dfb-be42e0eedc0610
