Faiz Fakier Properties has applied to the City of Cape Town to rezone a piece of land on the corner of Ferness and Ottery roads from single residential to a local business 2 property type and residents can comment or object to the planned rezoning.

The vacant piece of land will be used for a used car lot, and access to the property will be from Ferness Road.

The primary uses could include shops, offices, a dwelling house or
a second dwelling.
