KOSRA has been notified by the Ndlambe Town Planning Department of an application to consolidate two vacant plots on the northern side of Beaufort Street, abutting on the Spar property.
The application is also to rezone the properties from Residential 1 to Business 2. Sibuya wishes to relocate its reception from Eastbourne Road to this property, and to include some guest rooms, offices, and a small coffee shop/restaurant.
The planned buildings, which we have seen, are tasteful and could well form a buffer against any noise emanating from the Spar property.
As the properties along the northern side of Beaufort Street are earmarked for future expansion of Kenton’s CBD in the Spatial Development Framework, KOSRA, after consideration, decided that it should not oppose the application, but should require that the buildings be adjusted in order to comply with the lateral building lines abutting on the currently residential properties on either side.
If anyone wishes to object to any of these applications, we can furnish you with a copy of the application document. You should then address your objection, with reasons, to Ntombolo Ngxwagashula at firstname.lastname@example.org.
