(d) that certain scheduled activities (activity 2), including
associated structures and infrastructure, where the total area of the
development area is, or is intended to be, 20 ha. or more, requires the
EIA process to be followed.
One of the most critical stages of the EIA process presents itself in
the consultation with all the relevant Interested and Affected Parties
(I&AP’s) in order to gather issues, concerns and suggestions
regarding the proposed development. I&APs include persons that are
influenced directly by the project i.e. existing residents and
neighbours as well as social groups and furthermore also indirectly

background information on the proposed development and to participate
in the EIA process by submitting your issues, concerns and any positive
