Council retains Kramersdorf extensions

SWAKOPMUND

The Swakopmund town council recommended that some extensions in Kramersdorf should not be sold to developers or members of the public either as extensions or as a number of separate erven but that the town council retains it for own development to train technicians to design services and to be involved in project management.

The town council approved the installation of services at extensions 32, 33 and 36 located east of Kramersdorf during its latest monthly agenda meeting. The projects for the extensions will be internally coordinated and supervised by the engineering services department and will be done in phases, depending on demand and available funds. The funding and installation of services will be done on a phased basis due to the subdued market demand for high value serviced residential erven.

The management committee further resolved that Erongo RED should be consulted for assistance in undertaking and funding the development of the electrical infrastructure and that once the erven of the extensions are promulgated, they will be sold by closed bid sales.

Council received an application for the development of these extensions from Riverview Development CC and on 27 April 2017, the town council remained with the resolution of 28 January 2014.

This resolution states that once council decides on the future development and sale of these subdivided blocks and a surveyor-general approved diagram is in place, it will advertise its intention in two newspapers circulating locally as required in terms of the Local Authorities Act, Act 23 of 1992, as amended. In this way council will be affording the general public transparent, fair and equal opportunity to participate by either submitting development proposal or closed bids.

The proposal will be similar to the agreement signed during 2013 for the serving of extension 10 (industrial area). Erongo RED would share in the net proceeds of the sale of the erven in accordance with the ratio of the costs of the electrical infrastructure compared to the total development cost.

It was further proposed that these extensions be budgeted for as follows: extension 32 in the 2019/2020 financial year, extension 33 in the 2021/2022 financial year and extension 36 in the 2023/2024 financial year.

The purpose of budgeting every second year is an effort to generate income from the sale of the extensions serviced previously, considering the market for high income properties is quite subdued.
