The Observatory Civic Association represents the interests of residents and businesses in Observatory and has partnered with over 60 Khoi groups, environmental NGOs and Civic Associations in opposition to the destructive development proposed by LLPT at the River Club and to call for heritage grading of the entire Two Rivers Urban Park. We are going to the High Court to seek a judicial review under PAJA of the approvals given by the City and the Province to the development. As a Civic Association that believes in the importance of social justice and democratic practice, we believe the future of the Liesbeek River and this site is important not just for the local community but, as a major heritage and environmental site threatened by inappropriate development, for all South Africans.
