Development’s long wait finally at an end

The second phase of the housing development at Lourensia Park in Somerset West broke ground last week as the long-awaited construction of at least 150 residential units commenced.

Ward 15 councillor Gregory Peck stated that the units, some of which will be double-storey to maximise space on the land, is expected to be completed by July next year.

Single residential units will be built instead of the previous plans to construct a block of flats.

Peck explained that this decision required a change of land rezoning from multi-purpose to single purpose residential, and that the process took a long time resulting in negotiations to be entered into with Asla, the appointed contractor, again as the contract expired after three years.

“We are now fully on track. Despite some minor setbacks with the rains over the past few days, we are glad to announce that it has not affected the construction and everything is going ahead on schedule,” he said.

According to community liaison officer (CLO) Eben Arendse, labourers have been sourced from the local community and up to 60 unskilled workers are expected to be employed during the construction phase.

“All applications for employment must go through Councillor Peck’s office, as the CLO has no involvement in granting jobs to applicants,” he clarified.

The first phase of Lourensia Park, which commenced in 2011, is complete with the handover of 217 residential units. The completion of phase two will increase this number to 367 units.
