Port St Johns Masterplan

The Matrix…cc performed the role as lead consultant in the development of a Master Plan for the town of Port St Johns along the Wild Coast. The other team members include town and regional planners, economists, environmentalists, engineers and tourism specialists. The Master Plan focuses on reinforcing the individual identities of the various nodes and the development of a new mixed use/residential area near the airstrip. The project identified the lack of bulk services and the absence of a waterborne sewerage system as the main stumbling block for development. The development of these facilities is first priority in terms of implementation plans. Following on this a number of Catalythic projects were identified which will improve the living conditions for the residents as well as creating a Tourism Node along the Wild Coast.
