About

Cape Coast Metro Assembly

The Cape Coast Metropolis

Cape Coast is the only Metropolis out of the Twenty (23) districts in the Central Region. Cape Coast Metropolis lies within latitudes 5◦ 20’ and longitudes 1◦ 11’ to 1◦ .41’ West of the Greenwich Meridian. The Metropolis is bounded to the south by the Gulf of Guinea, west by the Komenda Edina Eguafo Abrem, East by the Abura Asebu Kwamankese District, and to the north by the Twifu Heman Lower Denkyira District. It occupies an Area of approximately 122 square kilometres, with the farthest point at Brabedze, about 17 kilometres from Cape Coast, the capital of the Metropolis as well as the Central Region. The Metropolitan Assembly (CCMA) was established initially as a municipal Assembly by L.I. 1373 in 1987 and after twenty years of existence elevated to Metropolitan status by L.I. 1927 in February, 2007.
The strategic location of Cape Coast, located between the major cities in the country, namely Kumasi, Accra and Takoradi, as well as educational centre and tourist hub of Ghana provides an opportunity to develop the service industry.

Sub District Structures of Cape Coast

Cape Coast is divided into two administrative sub-Metropolitan Districts, i.e. Cape Coast North and South (which are also the constituencies). The main road from Accra to Takoradi, running through the township virtually demarcates Cape Coast Metropolis into north and south, with the Abura part of the road being north and the opposite side being south. The table as depicted below, illustrates the various communities and zones within each sub-Metro.
