The development concept is unique. The setting of a traditional, but socially integrated country village surrounded by a conservation area utilized for extensive farming fits national policy for social development and sustainable resource use, so that wide support for the development concepts has been recieved. We also think that city dwellers who live behind high security walls would welcome such an open tranquil setting. The highest standard of security is achievable in Verkykerskop in light of the low population density of the area, its remoteness, visual contact that will be possible between neighbours, and the privilege of such a small village to have a police station.
The development concept comprises the utilization of the existing settlement as a nucleus for the creation of a traditional country village with a range of sports and outdoors facilities, set within an extended conservation area where low impact farming will continue so as to enhance the farm life and outdoors experience.
The existence of the village heritage and the availability of the pristine surrounds present the rare opportunity for the development of a fully pre- planned and architecturally coordinated country village, while building the life style on the heritage themes of the area.
We have a vision for the inner village to develop over time into a vibrant buzz of mixed uses, densely, but rustically arranged among the historic buildings and typical farming community facilities.
