River Club Redevelopment BAR

Short Project Title: River Club Redevelopment BAR
   
Project Title: Basic Assessment Process for the Proposed Redevelopment of the River Club in Observatory, Cape Town
   
Project Synopsis: The Liesbeek Leisure Properties Trust (“the LLPT” or “the proponent”) operates the River Club in Observatory, Cape Town which, together with portions of adjacent properties, is collectively referred to as the site. The River Club is currently operated as a commercial facility, mainly for recreational (golfing) activities and conferencing. The LLPT is proposing to redevelop most of the site for residential, commercial, institutional and associated uses (the project or the development). The majority of the site is owned by the proponent.
SRK Consulting (South Africa) Pty Ltd (SRK) was appointed to undertake the environmental process required in terms of the National Environmental Management Act 107 of 1998, as amended (NEMA) in support of applications for Environmental Authorisation (EA), Heritage Approval and Water Use Authorisation.  The application for EA was submitted to the Department of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning (DEA&DP) on 6 January 2020, and the revised Basic Assessment Report (BAR) is now being released for a post-EA-application round of public review.
   
SRK Project Reference Number: 478320
   
Project Location: Erf 151832, City of Cape Town, and adjacent properties (Erf 26426, ERF 108936, Erf 26427, Erf 15326 Rem, Erf 26169, Erf 26170, Erf 26171, Erf 26172, Erf 26173, Erf 26174 and Erf 26175) – collectively the site
   
Status of the project: We would like to inform you of the availability of the revised BAR for stakeholder comment. The revised BAR can be accessed electronically on the SRK website - www.srk.co.za (via the ‘Library’ and ‘Public Documents’ links). The report will also be available for public review and comment at the River Club in Observatory, the Observatory Public Library and the offices of SRK Consulting in Rondebosch, Cape Town from 13 January 2020.

Issues raised by stakeholders on the pre-EA-application BAR have been summarised and responded to, and the BAR has been revised taking stakeholder comments into account where appropriate.  All comments are appended to the revised BAR.  Stakeholders are now invited to submit comments on the revised BAR and/or send relevant details (see below) so that SRK can register you on the project database if you are not registered already.  Noting that issues already raised are documented and responded to, we encourage stakeholders to submit comments relating to issues that have not yet been raised during the engagement process.

Stakeholders must submit comments to the contact person on or by 14 February 2020. Submissions should refer to the DEA&DP, HWC and DWS reference numbers (listed above), and must include your name, contact details (specifying the preferred method of notification, e.g. e-mail), and an indication of any direct personal, business, financial or other interest which they have in the application.

To submit any (new) comments on the BAR or for further information please contact Amy Hill at SRK Consulting: Tel: (021) 659 3060, Fax: (021) 685 7105, or Email: ahill@srk.co.za

We look forward to your input and response to the document.

Also note that Heritage Western Cape (HWC) Impact Assessment Committee (IACom) will table a Heritage Impact Assessment Supplementary Report on 28 January 2020 at 10h00 on the First Floor of the Protea Assurance Building, Green Market Square (refer to correspondence to stakeholders from SRK dated 6 December 2019).  As a stakeholder you have a right to be present at the HWC IACom meeting, and to make representations when the matter is considered should you wish to do so.
