Land for Swapo
20 July 2018 | Government
The Walvis Bay municipal council has approved the sale of a piece of land to the Swapo Party Walvis Bay Rural District for N$233 236.44.
The institutional erf which measures about 1 062 m² and is located in Kuisebmond, Extension 4, will be sold by private transaction.
In 2008 Kuisebmond, Extension 4, was allocated to the National Housing Enterprise (NHE) to develop a township. The new extension yielded 316 erven and the NHE provided these erven with services. The erven consisted of institutional and business erven and the rest were offered to NHE as residential erven.
The business erven were offered through public tender to interested developers. The institutional erven, of which Erf 5439 is one, have not been allocated and are still available.
The Swapo Party in their application indicated that they wish to purchase the erf for purposes to construct offices. The offices that will be constructed will be used for meetings and a gathering place for members of the party.
The applicant is currently accommodated at the Swapo Party Walvis Bay Urban District office. The two districts are independent and operate in two different constituencies.
The institutional erven in Extension 3, Kuisebmond, were offered to interested developers at N$150/m² during the 2013/2014 financial year. In order to cater for inflation and appreciation of land value, a price of N$219.62 per m² is proposed for the sale of this land. Since this piece of land is to be sold by private transaction, the standard additional 10%, which is N$23 323.64 for landscaping, will also apply and is to be utilised at council’s discretion.
Council also recommended that the Swapo Party Walvis Bay Rural District shall commence with the development of the erf within 12 months from date of sale, and that such development be completed within 24 months from date of sale. Failure to comply would result in the undeveloped erf being reverted back to council at the cost of the applicant.
