Cape Town - Eskom has slammed the decision of Anton Bredell, the provincial minister of local government, environmental affairs and development, and the Cape Town City Council to amend the urban edge to include land for the Wescape development on the west coast.

The power utility has taken Bredell and the City Council to the Western Cape High Court over the planned development of Wescape, designed as a city of 800 000 people.

The decision to amend the urban edge to allow the development was taken by Bredell in December 2013 on the recommendation of the City Council, which had decided a year earlier to support the application.
