She said 22 plots are marked for freestanding houses, five for townhouse complexes and seven plots for general businesses.
The plots will be on sale as of Monday to 06 September.
The plots are being sold through a tendering process.
JDN Construction company from Okahandja has been hired by the municipality to service the land at Extension Six.

Mathews said his company is also required to create roads, install streetlights and street sign signs.
He said a total of 31 local semi-skilled and skilled workers are employed at the site.
“We are expected to complete this project and hand over the site to the municipality in January 2017,” said Mathews.
