PROPOSED PROVINCIAL HERITAGE SITE (PHS) NOMINATION, IN TERMS OF SECTION 27 OF THE NATIONAL HERITAGE RESOURCES ACT 25 OF 1999 (NHRA 25, 1999): GREEN POINT COMMON, REMAINDER ERF 1056.
The matter above has reference.
Heritage Western Cape (HWC) is in receipt of your application for the above matter. This matter was discussed at the Inventories, Grading and Interpretation Committee (‘GIC) meeting held on 17 November 2017.
The Committee noted amongst other things that:
The Committee has noted that the City is in favour of option D boundary, and has therefore submitted an objection. This option excludes the Green Point stadium and the precinct.
The City’s objection, in addition to a written submission, was heard in meeting held on 4/08/2017.
The Committee felt there was no new information presented and the objection was not on heritage grounds, the committee further advised the City to make further submissions during the 60-day commenting period.
The City did not make any further submissions.
The Committee noted an overwhelming support from interested and affected parties in support of both the PHS nomination and option C boundary.
The Committee has noted objections received from two l&AP’s. In the case of Virgin Active SA (represented through submission by Mr. A. Lillie) the committee noted that HWC has failed to deliver/serve directly the notification for nomination to the lessee who is the affected party, in terms of S28(8) (b), a procedural requirement.
The objections submitted are not on heritage grounds rather on commercial viability and future business operations, i.e. alterations, renovations, extensions, etc., that will affect the site.
GPRRA has undertaken to put together a CMP. The City is encouraged to contribute in the drafting of the document. It is advisable that affected party’s concerns be considered, however heritage conservation to take priority.
The Committee endorse the PHS nomination for the Green Point Common and will recommend approval to Council. The Committee reiterated its support for option C. This option includes the Green Point stadium and the precinct. A detailed conservation management plan (CMP) must be submitted and approved by HWC. A high level discussion between HWC and the City is encouraged leading to the drafting of the CMP.
NOTE: The applicant is required to inform any party who has expressed a bona fide interest in any heritage-related aspect of this letter.
