Project Title: Proposed Banana City In Situ Upgrade Housing Project, eThekwini Municipality, KwaZulu-Natal
   
Project Synopsis:

The eThekwini Municipality Human Settlements Department proposes the in situ formalisation of 417 low-income residential housing sites. The new houses are proposed to be built at Banana City, Westville, KwaZulu-Natal. Infrastructure such as sewage reticulation, storm water control, roads, electricity supply and potable water connections will form part of the proposed in situ upgrade.


In terms of the 2014 Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) Regulations promulgated under the National Environmental Management Act, 1998 (Act No. 107 of 1998) (NEMA), the proposed development constitutes certain listed activities that require Environmental Authorisation prior to commencement of construction. In accordance with the EIA Regulations a Basic Assessment (BA) process is required to obtain Environmental Authorisation. eThekwini Human Settlements is applying to the Competent Authority, the KwaZulu-Natal Department of Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs (EDTEA), for environmental approval. SRK Consulting has been appointed to act as the independent Environmental Assessment Practitioner (EAP) for the BA process.

The Final Basic Assessment Report was submitted to the Department of Economic Development, Tourism and Environmental Affairs (EDTEA) on Wednesday, 19 March 2019.
The report may be downloaded from the links below. A hard copy of the Final Basic Assessment Report is available for viewing at the SRK Durban Office (2nd Floor Norfolk House, 54 Norfolk Terrace, Westville)
