Province bids for Schulphoek
The

The provincial government has made an offer to buy Schulphoek in Hermanus, according to Dudley Coetzee, Mayor of the Overstrand.

He says the municipality is now awaiting a reply from the owners of Schulphoek, the developer Rabcav. “We cannot share any further information at this stage of negotiations,” says Coetzee.

Lesley Viljoen of Rabcav also declined to comment.

According to an article in Hermanus Times (“Schulphoek ontwikkel”, 4 February 2010), Rabcav had gained development rights to several parcels of land in Hermanus in a deal with the Overstrand Municipality in 1999. These included Grotto Beach, the open erf next to the current OK in Voëlklip and a property along Swartdam Road, which now consists of housing and the clinic. In 2010 a new deal was struck in which Rabcav bought Schulphoek for R5,3 million cash.

The development rights of the three land parcels included in the 1999 deal reverted to the Overstrand Municipality. The 2010 agreement also held Rabcav responsible for installing all services on the Schulphoek site at a cost of R17,5 million.

At that time, plans for Schulphoek included 244 stands of 500m² each, a business district with the possibility of a coffee shop, conference centre and guest accommodation.

Although the ANC opposed the deal in February 2010, it was pushed through council with 11 votes for and seven against the deal.
