SELEBI-PHIKWE: Local authorities in the former mining town have through advice from the Special Economic Zone Authority (SEZA)resolved to select an area towards the airport as a Special Economic Zone site.

Initially, the Selebi-Phikwe Town Council had identified the western area towards Serule as being suitable for an airport, as it is consistent with the 2011-2035 Selebi-Phikwe Development Plan because it is close to the area zoned as Free Enterprise.

The council also maintained that the development plan emphasises densification and compaction of the already existing township built-up area, amongst other considerations. However, the fact that Selebi-Phikwe Economic Zone (SEZ) is expected to be a national aggregation site for base metals, mining and beneficiation and the desire to develop the airport city concept where there are existing airports have compelled council to consider the area towards the airport.
