Will deteriote the property prices. Its does not make sense to place it here

Creating low cost housing on a green zone in the centre of a well developed suburb will have a severe negative impact on housing prices and the general area. It will also lead to a downturn in new developments due to the potential risk of losing money on home purchases

I surport development of housing but it must not infringe on others rights .

I support low cost housing but not here,to little space and it will decrease the value of the other properties

I object to the low cost housing development.
Will only negatively impact the area, crime will increase and property values will drop.

We need developments for young professional middle class citizens. The price of houses are ridiculous

Low cost housing in this area will only cause further social problems.
Trying to "help" the "poor" by doing this will not work.
The existing residents who PAY their taxes will see their properties decline in value.
The City Council must STOP thinking in Communistic and Socialistic terms , these policies have been proven to be unworkable.
All men and women are NOT equal.
Develop this project in a different area.

Surely this land can be used for a better cause of which the current community can benefit from. Schools in Brackenfell are over crowded, hospital facilities are lacking and there definitely is not enough frail care facilities for our elderly. Please use this land for a school instead. We cannot have more people coming into our community when we do not even have enough facilities for the current residents. Common sense should kick in here - where will the children attend school? If we struggle to sell oir property due to this, you need to guarantee the sale of the house or shortfall due to this because we don't accept it. You cannot build if the community objects and we strongly OBJECT. Get the message now load ans clear and move on.

Building low-cost housing in the middle of a neighbourhood where citizens pay millions of Rands for their properties is not a well-considered decision.
It is a much bigger piece of land.
You can design it in two developments/phases - one being for normal citizens and the other being a type of an old age home.
It is situated right next to the Northpine Clinic and Medi-Cross .
Northpine Shopping Centre is across the road.
Walking distance from the Northpine Primary School.
Right next to the Northpine Technical High School.
Nedbank, Standard Bank and ABSA ATM's is available at the shopping centre.
Fisheries, a bakery, grocer and butchery is available across the road.
Northpine Community Hall is right next to the new proposed development.
Young children will be safer and not land op on the main road (Kruispad), but can freely walk to the shop, and play on the open field across Coetzenburg Ave.
Entrances can be from both Coetzenburg Ave and Ponderosa Ave.
I support the development, but not on Plot 9702.

Rather build an old age home or children's home. We need more of them desperately.


The call for comment was reopened by Grant Twigg and Malusi Booi at the meeting on 10 September 2019.
Mr. Twigg said it will stay open indefinitely:
The 250-flat social housing complex in Ruwari, planned to be completed in the next financial year. Rentals will range between R800 and R3600 per month. According to a presentation by section 21 social housing company Madulammoho, the estate will include a social assistance centre (Hope Centre), that will assist poor people in the Brackenfell area. The City of Cape Town is selling the 11 334m2 land to Madulammoho at a discounted price of R3.3m, which is an estimated 10% of the current market value.
