Lighthouse Property Investment Trust proposes to establish a residential and commercial development, with tourism activities on Erf 4747 located within the heritage area of Swakopmund. The property is owned by the proponent (Lighthouse Property Investment Trust). The development will be established on a site where the old swimming used to be, in the vicinity of the mole beachfront, Swakopmund Namibia. The area has significant tourism potential which will expose tourists to additional amenities within this node of the town. The proposed development will generate income for the local community and open-up broader economic opportunities.
