WATER: The City of Cape Town has confirmed the availability of potable water supply for the development. The main Steenbras pipeline to the city runs through the property.

Sewage treatment: the enlargement of the sewage plant at Macassar will only be complete in 2021 but in terms of our authorisation we have obtained approval to have a package sewage treatment plant which will turn the sewage back into potable water. The cost of this will be R13,400,000 with running costs of approximately R45,000 per month. The supplier company has funding available and will run this service on a monthly basis if so required. The expected usage is 660 kL per day with the dried solids from the effluent being available as fertiliser.

ELECTRICITY: Eskom have confirmed that electricity will be available for our project without a new substation. However, a large new substation will be required to supply the growing demand in the Faure area. These projects include several users being Amazon, who are opening premises on the Cape Town film studio site, Abland developments who have acquired portion 15 of the farm Vergenoegd 653, a small remainder of Vergenoegd 653 in which there is going to be mixed development, the Zetler development to the north of our site and De Wynlanden. It would be prudent to make provision for a contribution to the substation.


The City of Cape Town has indicated that it requires a development contribution of R31,079,749.

Eskom has not indicated that they require a substation to satisfy our development. We have made provision for R8,200,000 for cabling to supply the development.

As noted in other documentation, it is very likely that the number of units could be increased to 1450 or even 1800 as there has been a change in the city of Cape Town’s view of the density of this development.
