The municipality is currently servicing a piece of land in the Rocky Crest suburb to the south west of the city.
City spokesperson Scheifert Shigwedha said residential and business plots would be available.
“Two-hundred-and-fifty-six are for single residential in Extension 5 Rocky Crest but in total the erven for Extension 5 are 307, including institutional and businesses. Extension 7 residential are 175, with the total being 190 for institutional and business purposes,” said Shigwedha.
Rocky Crest Extension 5 is located west of Pionierspark Extension 1 along the Western Bypass and measures 43 hectares.
A private financier would help the City service a large portion of land in Rocky Crest in a public-private partnership, he said.
“Take note that Extension 7 is not to be serviced through the PPP,” he added.
“The completion of the proclamation process will eventually determine ... how soon our PPP partner and the City can commence with servicing...” said Shigwedha.
Rocky Crest Extension 7 measures about 21 hectares.
The City recently said that there was a backlog in residential plots for all income groups, and the residential land to be developed in Rocky Crest extensions 5 and 7 would cater for the middle-income group.
