The Draft Nodal Review document shows you a map of the city where you can navigate and zoom in to find your street and suburb. The map is divided into hexagons which are 400m across at their widest point. The window is divided into two with the Left hand window showing a map of Johannesburg with the densification potential as a percentage. The Right hand window displays a map of the proposed development zone level for each of those hexagons across the city.
The bulk of Emmarentia is classified as Development Zone 4; the remaining part of Emmarentia is classed as Development Zone 3 which allows higher densities than Zone 4.
Gemey is following up with the City to get further clarification on the proposals. Watch this space.
