PRIVATE DEVELOPER, CITY OF CAPE TOWN MUST ANSWER FOR THE DESTRUCTION OF A SACRED FLOODPLAIN
On the 19th to 21st January 2022, our interdict will be heard in the Cape Town High Court, the proceedings will be live-streamed. It seeks to stop the development of 150 000 square metres of concrete at the River Club site, Observatory, a sacred site of the San and Khoi, and an environmentally sensitive floodplain.
We believe the Rezoning and Environmental Authorization decisions by the City of Cape Town and the Department of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning, will be found invalid by the High Court. We reject the bulldozing and concrete infill of this land, which is being graded for a national and has been slated for a UNESCO heritage site.
Below is our full press kit on the matter, as well as our video and other materials containing full information.
