Western Cape MEC of Local Government Anton Bredell today approved an application for the development of the multibillion-Rand Wescape mini city near Koeberg nuclear power station. 

Bredell said this is a planning decision which means that developers can now put proposals forward which will go through a public participation process. 

Bredell said the City will look around the environmental issues, safety  issues around the Koeberg station and it’s a long term solution for the next 20 to 30 years.

Bredell said it would cost the tax payers.

On the other hand MEC Bredell has turned down a proposal to develop farmland in the Philippi Horticultural Area. 

This has been a controversial subject for some time proposal wanting to change the designation of 281 hectares of land involving privately owned properties. 

Bredell said two, three years ago the City opened up a corridor in Philippi which still needs to be developed and hopeful work will resume in the next few months.
