 "This will allow for the land to be developed for mixed-use purposes and will include 216 social housing units in addition to business and retail space," a statement said.  The approved rezoning application will provide for 723 residential units and 216 of these will be "social housing opportunities" for qualifying beneficiaries.

 It will also have business premises, informal trading and 119 parking bays.
