The Coun­cil’s es­tates com­mit­tee will sub­mit a lay­out for 243 stands and rec­om­mend that, ini­tially, 91 of them shall be sold to Arun­del Trad­ing and Devel­op­ment Com­pany (Pvt) Ltd.

The com­pany will pay £700 per stand and a min­i­mum build­ing value of £4 000 will be im­posed on them. When the re­main­ing 152 stands have been sold and houses erected the prop­erty in­volved in the scheme will be worth more than £1 mil­lion.

The com­mit­tee has also rec­om­mended that an ad­di­tional 25 acre on the South­ern Com­mon­age at Gran­ite­side should be added to the 170 acres re­served for a na­tional zoo­log­i­cal gar­den.

The land will be held for the Zoo­log­i­cal So­ci­ety of Rhode­sia for two years while it ne­go­ti­ates with the Gov­ern­ment for sup­port for the zoo.
