Rezoning approved for Cape Town stadium

Jul 26 2012 08:36

Cape Town - Cape Town's city council has approved the proposal to rezone the stadium in Green Point for commercial activity, it was reported on Thursday.

Tourism and events executive director Anton Groenewald would now ask the provincial government to amend the land use rights for the Cape Town stadium, its forecourt and Green Point Park, the Cape Times reported.

When the stadium was built, strict regulations were put in place to appease residents' concerns about noise and traffic volumes.

After the 2010 Soccer World Cup, the stadium had become a headache for the city, costing it R44.6m a year to run with less than substantial hiring fees in return.

According to the report, the city wants to develop suites in the stadium, let commercial space to retail outlets and companies and set up temporary hospitality facilities in the forecourt.

Groenewald would have to facilitate consultation with all affected and interested parties, including the Green Point Urban Park Forum.
