Special provision will be made for persons with disability and special needs upon submission of a medical doctor’s certificate. - Pauline Nashilundo, Swakopmund Mayor

The Swakopmund Municipality has made progress in 2017 in the availing of land through land sales, the coastal town’s mayor, Pauline Nashilundo, has said.

In its annual report, Nashilundo said the municipality managed to sell a total of 258 single residential erven located in extensions 34, 35 and Matutura to the public in close bid sales.

She stated that seven general residential erven, two business erven and 18 industrial erven were also auctioned off during the same period, which was between 25 November 2016 and 02 December 2017.

According to Nashilundo, the town council also offered 150 erven to local construction company, Messrs Power Oyeno Namibia, by way of a public-private partnership (PPP) for the construction of low cost houses in Swakopmund.

She further stated that the council has granted permission to the community development services department to resume housing registration for 2018.

“With the allocation of residential land, special provision will be made for persons with disability and special needs upon submission of a medical doctor’s certificate,” she explained.

The mayor added that due to budgetary constraints, some of the capital projects, which include fixing of water pipes, have been put on hold. - Nampa
