Kibaha Town Council in Coast region, in collaboration with Kibaha Golf Course Estate Development Company based in Dar es Salaam has surveyed over 169 residential and commercial plots in efforts to overcome unplanned settlements.

According to a statement released yesterday by the council, sale of the plots situated in Pangani area about 4.5 kilometers off Morogoro road, will commence next week. The statement said that various social services such as electricity were close to project area and plans are underway to ensure that the area is connected to power and water.

“We invite wananchi, companies and institutions in need of plots to go to the office of the Town Council Director starting May 28 so they can select the plots they require," it said.

It further said that an applicant will be required to pay 10,000/- as an application fee and 25 per cent of the price of the selected plot as downpayment. Speaking to journalists in Dar es Salaam yesterday, Kibaha Golf Course Estate Development project manager Gaston Sanga said 159 of the plots are residential plots while 10 are commercial.

He added that currently research was being conducted in the area to establish the volume of underground water so they can drill wells to make water accessed easily.

"It is better to live in surveyed areas because the value of land keeps increasing …the plots can be reached easily through roads constructed in the project area," he said.

The size of the plots ranges between 600 square metres and 3,000 square metres.
