Application for rezoning for Peak Road flat conversion

The owner of a mountainside property in Fish Hoek has applied for rezoning so the house on the plot can be converted into five

The application calls for 70 Peak Road (Erf 8330) to be rezoned from Single Residential 1 to General Residential 2.

The current zoning permits a house, a second dwelling, private road, and home occupation or bed and breakfast establishment or home child care.

According to the application submitted by Edward Clemence Architects on behalf of the owner, the house on the property has five bedrooms and three garages. This house was previously used as a bed and breakfast, in which two of the bedrooms were used by the family for personal residence, and the other three bedrooms were rented as lodging for guests.

The owner of the property now wants to convert the main house into five flats, all to be contained within the existing building.

A plan has been prepared by Edward Clemence Architects which is now in the building plan approval process.

The property is located within an area predominantly used for single-residential purposes, but the application says there will be no external alterations to the house.
