“THE NMBM is a major role player and parent municipality of the MBDA, so it is important to keep the leadership abreast of developments. At this stage the item is not (ready) for approval until all public and stakeholder inputs have been consolidated and a comprehensive business plan formulated.”

The Bayworld stakeholder engagement process seeks to solicit views and aspirations from various stakeholders, testing the feasibility and sentiment towards the draft conceptual framework.

Possible additional components, which will be added to the new phase, include, among others, McArthur Baths, Happy Valley, Telkom Park, Nelson Mandela Bay Science and Technology Centre, Art Museum and South End Museum.

The public and stakeholders also get the opportunity to reimagine the Bayworld precinct and propose their own aspirational views and opinions.

The stakeholder engagement process is scheduled for completion by March 30, 2019.

Members of the public who wish to engage, can send an e-mail to to get included in the process.

Bangazi added, “A limited number of spaces are available, hence booking is essential.”

A public meeting was held yesterday and another will be held at the MBDA Tramways Building today, March 6 from 10:00.

Residents of the Bay are invited to join the process in sharing their dreams and aspirations in reshaping these iconic assets of Nelson Mandela Bay. According to the plan, site works for the improvement of Bayworld are scheduled to start in the second half of 2020.
