Multimillion-rand project in planing stage

2015-07-23 06:01

THE multimillion-rand “Music City” project, which is said to be a Caribbean-type resort “twice the size of Sun City” is still at the planning stages.

During a trade mission in the United States Mike Mabuyakhulu was successful in convincing people that the Music City project should be in KwaZulu-Natal.

A site in Hibberdene was identified as the ideal place for the construction of the project and the district municipality and the Hibiscus Coast municipality signed an agreement to make the land available for the project.

In the agreement that Ugu mayor Cllr Ntombifikile Gumede signed, it said the land would be given to the project free of charge.

“We agreed that for the next five years, no rent will be required for the land.”

Gumede said she hopes the land will be a fruitful investment to stimulate economic development and create jobs.

At this stage the municipality is not sure of exactly where the project will be constructed.

“The Music City project is currently at the preliminary stage where the investor is to conduct preliminary engineering designs, ceo-technical investigations, environmental impact assessment and the layout and subdivision of the project,” said municipal spokesperson France Zama.

The exact cost of the project has not yet been determined as the planning stages still have to be completed.

“The value of Music City will be determined after the conclusion of the preliminary and detailed planning stages of this project,” said Zama.

The project will boost the economy of the district municipality and address the triple challenge of poverty, unemployment and inequality while simultaneously attracting international investments
