Vredekloof Heights Development + Traffic: Public Meeting

Good day Brackenfell residents Those of you who submitted objections to City of Cape Town (CoCT) in respect of the rezoning and development of 534 flatson the existing ‘Andrag’ land would have received correspondence from CoCT via registered mail/e-mail. The correspondence confirms that CoCT has approved the applications for development and rezoning, that we have the opportunity to appeal against the decision and that we have until 10 August to do so.  The documentation clearly indicates that we cannot merely provide reasons for our appeal, but have to refer to applicable legislation for the appeal application to be considered.  This makes it difficult for us who do not know the law. Nico Fivaz, Leon Brynard and myself met with an attorney to discuss our options going forward.  After consultation it is clear that there are definitely grounds for appeal.  The suggestion on the table is that we nominate a community representative whom we give power of attorney to appear on our behalf, and that the attorney assists with completion of the appeal documentation which we will lodge together with a legal document that the attorney will prepare.  This will mean that the attorney will have to go through all the documentation from when the application for development/rezoning started in 2015 up to the latest correspondence – time that is limited with deadline 10 Aug, and money required to pay for legal fees. Between Pierre Germishuys (chairman of Vredekloof Heights Neighbourhood Watch), Nico Fivaz (who represented us at the CoCT’s Interim Planning Committee meeting in May) and myself, we have already covered the cost of the independent traffic engineer and consultation cost of the attorney in an effort to ensure a fair process. Pierre, Nico, Leon Brynard (Manager of the Vredekloof CID) and myself have formed a body, Northern District Community Forum (NDCF) that will be used now and in the future as a vehicle to address community issues in Brackenfell area as well as adjoining suburbs.  Any contributions towards legal fees for the appeal process, however minuscule, can be paid into the NDCF’s account (detail below). I fully understand that some of us have become very despondent regarding the process followed, but we need to keep momentum, fight the steam-rolling/rubber stamping process used by CoCT’s and let our voices be heard.  Even if we are the only suburb/community in the Western Cape that has the courage to fight the system. I encourage you to attend our community meeting that will be held on Monday, 31 July at 18:30 at Vredekloof Lodge where we will be able to share more information, and sign up to become a member of NDCF.  Account name:  Northern District Community Forum Nedbank Current account no:  1149930195 Tygerberg Winelands branch – branch code:  118602 Thanking you Regards Bonita Conradie

UPDATE – De Vrede Guest House – proposed amendment to the site development plan

The City of Cape Town gave notice of a planning application received for consideration. The application is for the proposed amendment of the Site Development Plan for De Vrede Guest House, erf 8067 Brackenfell, 12 Leetchfield Street. The Site Development Plan proposes an addition of 33 bedrooms for guest accommodation at the existing De Vrede Guest House. It also proposes 76 parking bays. The closing date for objections, comments or representations is 24 July 2017. Due to the school holidays, we asked for an extention of the closing date. As soon as we receive an answer on this, we will communicate further.   FEEDBACK Dear  Mr Brynard Based on the number of responses already received there is no motivation for re-advertising this application. It is also not possible per the Municipal Planning By-law (MPBL) to grant an extension on the time within which to submit objections. I did however find that the petition that was submitted does not comply with the prescriptions of the MPBL. Thus to be fair the application will be re-advertised together with a brochure on how a petition should be compiled. Kind regards Susan Matthysen District Manager Northern District Development Management De Vrede Guest House

Missing Cat – 8 Koorsboom

My kitten is 7 months old, a girl, tortoise shell as you can see on the photo, she is very slim and not very big. Her name is Mia (she also responds to Minkies). She is obsessed with being outside and last night she managed to get out the window without us knowing about it. It think with it being dark and she is not that familiar with being at the front end of the house she lost her way. We have been looking for her but have not been able to find her. I will really appreciate it if they can just keep an eye open and let me know. My cell number is 084 081 0204 (Laetitia) and my husband 082 458 1795 (Steven).
