BACKGROUND INFORMATION DOCUMENT REGARDING :
 
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT ASSESSMENT (EIA) PROCEDURE FOR THE PROPOSED
TOWNSHIP ESTABLISHMENT ON THE REMAINDER OF THE FARM DOORNKLOOF
391 JR, ON THE BORDER OF THE KUNGWINI & TSHWANE DISTRICTS, GAUTENG.

 
PROJECT DESCRIPTION
 
Eco Consult Inc. - Landscape Architects and Environmental Consultants have been appointed by the developer (Skai Developments Pty (Ltd)) as the Environmental Assessment Practitioners (EAP) to conduct an Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) and to compile an Environmental Scoping Report and Environmental Impact Assessment Report for the proposed residential township establishment on Portions 81 - 83 of the farm Doornkloof 391 JR, Pretoria, Gauteng.  
 
The Developer is required under the current National Environmental Management Act, 1998 (Act No. 107 of 1998), as amended, and the Environmental Impact Assessment Regulations of the 21st of April 2006 as set out in Regulations R. 385, R386 and R387 of the National Environmental Management Act, 1998 (Act No. 107 of 1998) to follow the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process and submit a scoping and EIA report to the Gauteng Provincial Government Department of Agriculture, Conservation and Environment (GDACE) for their approval.

This legislation stipulates under Regulation 387 Section 24 2(a) and (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 affected I&AP’s i.e. those persons representing the various local and provincial governmental authorities.
 
We would like to take this opportunity to invite you to read the background information on the proposed development and to participate in the EIA process by submitting your issues, concerns and any positive or negative comments. By law I&AP’s must do this in writing in order to be formally registered as an I&AP’s in terms of this development. Details of the environmental practitioner are provided
above.

DESCRIPTION OF THE PROPOSED ACTIVITY
The property covers an area of approximately 37.7997 hectares and is situated between Game Reserve Drive and Sterkfontein Avenue directly to the west of the Rietvlei Nature Reserve and east of the R21 highway. The development will gain access from 24th East street.
 
The proposed township development will include the following:
 
Single Residential Housing (Res 1)  173 erven
Clustered Housing (Res 2)               6 erven (@ 21.5 units/ha average)
High rise flats (Res 3)                     4 erven (@ 60 units/ha average)
Streets                                            1 erf

Community facilities which will include a tennis court, social lapa, swimming pool, a clubhouse and private open space for parks. 10 erven
Paved walkways throughout the development for residents to walk through the estate.   2 erven
A buffer area bordering Rietvlei Nature Reserve with wet detention ponds to aid in
storm water management. 1 erf
 
Services including water and electricity supply sewerage, storm water and traffic engineering will be designed and constructed according to recognized engineering standards and these services will be upgraded where possible to absorb the requirements of the new development without impacting the service delivery to the surrounding properties detrimentally. Detailed services reports will be developed by the relevant qualified engineers and submitted to the authorities for compliance authorization before the proposed development is authorized to commence.
 
Please contact the environmental assessment practitioner to obtain any further information.  
 
Yours sincerely
 
JC Van Rooyen
