The land between the Clifton Bungalows and Camps Bay has been earmarked as an area that needs regeneration.

The City has been criticised for its plans to sell the sites of the Glen Country Club and Bungalow restaurant to a private sector developer.

Alderman Ian Neilson, Deputy Mayor and Mayoral Committee Member for Finance for the City of Cape Town spoke to CapeTalk’s Kieno Kammies about the City’s plans for Clifton.

This is underutilised piece of land and there are degraded buildings not as good as they should be and we believe there’s value to be head-out of this land

According to Neilson, they propose to retain the sporting areas and to increase access to the beach front. He also spoke about an underground parking garage and a commercial space with an anchor retail tenant.

Once the renovations are completed, the City will put the land for tender (for someone to purchase) or on lease.

An opportunity is being awarded to members of the public to submit questions about the development by the 16th of September.
