During the 12th ordinary Council meeting at Mogale City Local Municipality at the end of November, the Executive Mayor, Naga Patrick Lipudi, announced the executive decisions made by his council.

Among these are the approval of the Inner City Precinct Plan whose spatial coverage will cover the broader Coronation Park precinct, so that agglomeration economies could be achieved and the economic impact of the plan widened.

The Inner City Precinct Plan contains a raft of interventions that will alter the face of the CBD and rapidly bring it into the 21st century.

This economic recovery initiative, to be rolled out over the next five years, includes the following programmes:

• The municipal node – Municipal offices, retail/ food court, banking court, public square and parkade

• Mixed-use node – New taxi rank, BRT station (future), offices, retail and residential properties

• Public open space – Station forecourt/ public square

• Streetscape – Trading stalls, walkways, tree planting, traffic calming, street furniture and taxi and bus drop-off points

• New road upgrade – Paardekraal Drive

• Coronation Park upgrade which is already underway

• Bob van Reenen Stadium reclamation, revamp and upgrade

The municipality has already approached National Treasury to declare the entire Inner City as suggested above as an Urban Development Zone and will claim benefits associated with the Urban Development Zone Tax Incentive Scheme.

The other decision is about the development of the largest water park in South Africa. The Happy Island Waterworld is the project core of the Muldersdrift tourist area and will introduce international first-class water recreation facilities, including traditional water park items such as:

• Tornado

• Superbowl

• Spiral slide

• Rainbow slide

• Theme water village

The site for the Happy Island Waterworld development is along Beyers Naudé Drive, Muldersdrift, opposite Hakunamatata Lodge and Spa, within Mogale City boundaries.

Building and location conditions are good with convenient access to key road networks as well as investment and broad market access.
