Xai-Xai IDP – PHYSICAL PLAN

FAO-PAP/RAC-MICOA

Development Cell: T4

Front Segment: T4-1 - 50/500 Concessions

1.

Existing Framework

1.1

Relative Locality

It borders the open space and backset road and is close to the sports area. It is located along the open stretch of the beach with limited bathing possibilities.

1.2

Size and Dimension

49.0 ha

1.3 1.4 1.5

Topography Height Land Cover

More moderate slopes than most other areas. Includes deep lateral valleys. 10m to 40m above sea level.

The southern section is densely vegetated. Vegetation is, however, partly destroyed by intensive tourist development and agriculture. The northern section is covered by scattered bush.

1.6 1.7

Orientation

Distance from the Beachfront

Mostly seaward 0-800m

1.9

Existing Access

The existing access is via the beachfront road which is severely eroded and impassable in places and is set to deteriorate rapidly with the increasing traffic. Several spontaneous attempts to improve the road have been made by the users.

Concessions

12 concessionaires were granted concessions for 2,5ha units with dimensions of 50x500m. Some concessionaires were granted concessions for two to four lots.

1.10

Built Structures

Only two of these 12 concessionaires have started development of the sites, such as the camping site of Golfinho Azul and Oasis. This is due to dimensions of the sites, lack of seriousness of the situation and funding. For most of the sites no proper development proposals are available.

Planning Framework

Map 10(b): Land-use

2.1

Planning Phase

Layout and land division completed.

Detailed planning to be completed during the second phase.

2.2

Land Use

Medium intensity tourism complexes accommodating hotels, commercial activities and entertainment facilities at the promenade and lower intensity fragmented development at the back.

2.3

Density, Land Division and Capacity

The size and number of granted concession rights have been respected, but the shape has been redesigned trying to maintain as much sea frontage as possible for all properties. The site has been divided into nine 2,5ha units, with dimensions of 100m x 250m, two units of 5 hectares and 1 unit of 10 hectares based on the original subdivisions. Should it be necessary in the future, larger units can be redivided into smaller ones of 2,5ha. Seriousness of concessionaires and existing development attempts have been taken into account when granting concession rights. Those who have already started development were given preference over concession rights.

The suggested density is about 50 visitors per hectare. Density for each site should be determined individually based on the sensitivity of the site and its carrying capacity.

Hotel beds: 1,500

Access

Access can be obtained via the coastal road and preferably from the backset road via two lateral roads.
