Mamre residents urged to comment on proposed neighbourhood plan

The City of Cape Town's Deputy Mayor and Mayoral Committee Member for Spatial Planning and Environment, Eddie Andrews has urged Mamre community members to comment on the draft Local Spatial Development Framework (LSDF), ahead of Wednesday.

Alderman Eddie Andrews met with leaders and members of the Mamre community on 9 December to discuss the Local Spatial Development Framework (LSDF). “[The LSDF] is a tool that highlights opportunity areas for Mamre and provides development guidelines for the future growth of this special and unique area,” said Andrews.

The LSDF is set to establish “an inclusive and vibrant neighbourhood” through restructuring and integrating Mamre with surrounding areas.

The draft provides short-, medium- and long-term spatial and investment planning for the small town, and is guided by the uniqueness of the town, such as the agriculture, natural environment, tourism and land ownership.

“I believe that the residents of Mamre, especially, could provide very valuable input if they are to partner with us and assist by commenting on this local neighbourhood plan,” said Andrews.

Andrews further noted that the LSDF would guide the future planning of the town.

Those interested in commenting on the draft have until Wednesday to do so.
