Kommetjie residents are considering mounting a legal challenge after the City of Cape Town’s mayoral committee gave the go-ahead for the building of 254 new houses in the suburb.

The City of Cape Town’s mayoral committee gave the go-ahead for the building of 254 new houses in the suburb, overturning a decision by the council’s spatial planning, environment and land use committee (Spelum) to reject the rezoning and subdivision applications. Mayco’s decision comes amid pending legal action from the Kommetjie Residents and Ratepayers’ Association (KRRA) for a similar approval granted last year for another 107 houses in the same area between Klein Slangkop and Kommetjie.

The council’s report on the matter notes that the area which will be developed is the last portion of land available for development between the existing town and the Table Mountain National Park.

“There are very real unspoken environmental concerns about the larger biodiversity of the area,” Dowling said.
