The finalisation of the much-anticipated multi-million rand Mpumalanga Newtown Centre will be delayed again due to the recent high court ruling on Ingonyama Trust Board (ITB) land.

The Mpumalanga Newtown Centre is a development plan between the eThekwini Municipality and ITB to build a mixed-used zone comprising a mall, Sizakala centre, and 1 500 low-cost housing units in Hammarsdale and nearby Mpumalanga.

It will develop the Hammersdale area, as residents are forced to travel to Durban or Pinetown for necessities.
