The border town officials said there was a population of close to 30 000 residents, but lacked a modern shopping facility.

The available land measures 15 000 square meters. Council officials told Southern Eye at the ongoing Zimbabwe International Trade Fair (ZITF) that the border town also had land for construction of private schools, a private hospital and clinics.

“Prime land is available in the CBD (central business district) measuring 15 000 square metres suitable for the construction of a shopping mall or an office park. Plumtree Town Council is seeking for potential investors to take up these stands and commence development,” a council official said.

On the land, the official said stands measuring between 500 square metres and 1 000 square metres were also available for private health facilities and schools.

“There are several undeveloped industrial stands ranging from 5 000 square metres to 14 000 square metres situated along the border road.

“As Plumtree Town Council, we seek local and foreign investors to grab this opportunity to invest in a fast growing border town,” the official said.

Officials manning the Beitbridge Town Council stand just close to the Plumtree stand, said they were at the ZITF “just to display” and were not keen on talking to the media.

They said all enquiries would have to be directed to their Beitbridge office.
