Relative Locality

Although well located with regards to the main centre it is not adjacent to the beachfront. It is abutted by protected green areas in the north and east.

Area Size Topography Height Land Cover

49,5 HA Undulating with flat sections with a slope of less than 10%. 20-60m

The largest section is cultivated thus causing destruction of the natural vegetation. The southern section is covered with dense vegetation.

Development Guidelines

Broad conceptual guidelines have been completed. Detailed planning to be completed in the third phase.

Medium density residential development for tourists and local inhabitants including individual residential stands and supportive facilities.

Individual stands of 500-1500m2 with a street front of 15-25m. Subdivision will be allowed to a minimum of 500m2. Cluster development with a density of up to 20 units per hectare will be allowed, depending on the natural features of the site.

Residents/Guests: 2,000

An access point must be created to the ring road between Xai-Xai Beach and Wenela House

A longitudinal road linking the road to Wenela House and the main ring road in Xai-Xai Beach have been placed, taking the topography into account.

Detailed planning of road network and pedestrian routes to be completed. See section on development guidelines for medium density residential areas.

  • Space should be created for service and entertainment areas; and

  • Areas unsuitable for housing development, such as depressions and landward oriented slopes, are generally planned as green areas, retention ponds, service areas and areas intended for the development of public facilities.
