Sure Focus Twenty Two CC is proposing a cluster housing development with approximately 74 low-to-medium income houses on Portion 1 of 25, Portion 1 of 27 and Rem of 27 Amanzimtoti. The total area of these properties is approximately 9.4 hectares, with a development footprint of less than two hectares.
The housing development will be divided into two separate portions; the “eastern portion” to be comprised of 46 residential units and “western portion” comprised of 28 residential units, totalling 74 units. The eastern portion will be accessed from Wanda Cele Road (formerly Old Main Road). The western portion will be accessed from Wade Road.
Approximately 80% of the property will remain undeveloped, including;
- 64% to be registered as a conservation servitude, which includes the forested area identified as having high ecological value. This will be a no-go area for construction
- Approximately 10% to be used as the body corporate conservation area, identified as closed canopy indigenous forest and will be used for on-site relocation of protected species prior to construction
The applicant intends on donating full rights to use of the conservation servitude (64% of the property) to eThekwini Municipality to ensure it remains a conservation area, maintains the connectivity of the Durban Metropolitan Open Space System (DMOSS) corridor and could potentially be linked to the existing iLanda Wilds Nature Reserve, which follows the nearby Amanzimtoti River.
In terms of Listing Notices 1 and 3 (GNR R983 and 985) promulgated in 2014 under The National Environmental Management Act (Act No. 107 of 1998), EIA Regulations 2014, listed activities will be triggered by this development and therefore it requires a Basic Assessment Report to be submitted to KZN Department of Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs.
