CAPE TOWN - The City of Cape Town plans to go ahead with the sale of portions of prime land between Camps Bay and Clifton for private development.

Addressing a full sitting of the City Council today, Mayor Patricia de Lille asked councillors to approve a proposal to put the sale of the property to tender.

In May, the council approved the municipality's proposal to sell or lease portions of land in Clifton and Camps Bay for underground parking, residential and commercial retail development.

De Lille says following four rounds of public consultations, the City has included two other portions of land.
