Hermanus CBD Bypass EIA

Short Project Title: Hermanus CBD Bypass EIA
   
Project Title: Environmental Impact Assessment for the Proposed New Hermanus CBD Bypass
   
Project Synopsis: The Provincial Government Western Cape: Department of Transport and Public Works (WCDTPW) proposes to construct a bypass road approximately 3 km long, to the north of the Hermanus Central Business District (CBD), abutting Mountain Drive, past the Hermanus Sports Complex and along Fairways Avenue, in Hermanus in the Western Cape.

SRK Consulting (South Africa) Pty Ltd (SRK) has been appointed to undertake the Scoping and Environmental Impact Reporting (S&EIR, also referred to as EIA) process required in terms of the National Environmental Management Act 107 of 1998, as amended (NEMA).
   
SRK Project Reference Number: 448281
   
Official Reference Number: DEA&DP Reference Number: 16/3/1/2/E2/15/2124/14
   
Project Location: Hermanus, Western Cape
   
Status of the project: The Department of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning (DEA&DP) issued a letter on 19  March 2018 rejecting the Hermanus CBD Bypass Final EIA Report and listing a number of aspects that DEA&DP requests are addressed in an amended Final EIA Report, which must be released for public comment once amended and before being resubmitted to DEA&DP for decision-making. These include aspects relating, inter alia, to:
-    Biodiversity offset and golf course wetland;
-    Alternatives and alternative market site;
-    Timeline;
-    Municipal and HWC comment; and
-    Specialist study review.

Some of these aspect will need to be further explored and clarified with DEA&DP.

The Western Cape Department of Transport and Public Works (WCDTPW) currently plans to address the issues raised by DEA&DP, which will feed into an amended Final EIA Report. Normal procedure foresees that the DEA&DP letter will be released as part of the amended Final EIA Report, which will also indicate how the various aspects raised by DEA&DP were addressed.  

At present, a final decision and timeline on the way forward has not been taken, pending discussions regarding how best to deal with these aspects, which will require input from a number of parties.  Once a way forward has been agreed, please be assured that stakeholders will be informed and the amended Final EIA Report and/or other appropriate documentation will be released.  This may well be some months into the future.
