BACKGROUND INFORMATION  -  Gaut: 002/05-06/1013

Environmental Scoping Report For The 5 O’Clock Site                                        
1. INTRODUCTION                   
 
Irene Realisation Company (Pty) Ltd is planning a land development to be known as
Centurus on the 5 O’Clock Site (Irene extension 70: Portion 198 of the farm Doornkloof 391
JR and part of the remainder of Portion 335 or the farm Doornkloof 391 JR). The application
is done in terms of section 96(1) of the Town Planning and Townships Ordinance, 1986
(Ordinance 15 of 1986). 
 
The application is for the establishment of a township consisting of 753 erven respectively
zoned for:
 
• “Residential 1” (664 erven)
• “Residential 2” (31 erven)
• “Special” for “Residential 2” (2 erven)
• “Special” Offices, Light Industries, Showrooms, Warehouses, Laboratories, Computer

• “Special” access control (5 erven) and
• “Private Open Space” (38 erven)
 
The study area is located in the area of jurisdiction of the Tshwane Metropolitan
Municipality in Gauteng Province.


In terms of the implementation of the regulations under Section 21 and 26 of the
Environmental Conservation Act, 1989 (Act No. 73 of 1989) an Environmental Impact
Assessment Process is required for the above-mentioned project, due to the fact that the  
proposed activities are listed activities (rezoning from agriculture to any other use,
upgrading of a provincial road, upgrading of external services) The purpose of this process
is to determine the influence of the proposed development on the surrounding
environment. 
 
The applicant therefore appointed Bokamoso Landscape Architects and
Environmental Consultants
, to compile an Environmental Scoping Report/ Mini EIA
for the proposed development.
