HWC Appeals committee agenda – the number of demolition requests is disturbing



The attached  agenda for the appeals committee of HWC illustrates the pressure  that is being applied to the heritage resources in the Cape town area.

The escalation in property values and the  desire to enlarge and in many   to  alter the use of the site into multi residential developments   is threating the early 20 the cen. residential areas around Cape town is illustrated by the number of appeals against decision taken by the built environment and landscape committee of Heritage Western Cape .


For those interested   we advise you to refer to the recent Goss judgement   as a guideline  to the steps  that heritage bodies must take in combination with the proclamation of special areas in their own towns. HWC have  recently held a workshop for local authorities to counter the   destruction of sensitive areas in the province .We believe that draft guidelines will be published shortly


NOTICE is hereby given of the Heritage Western Cape, Appeals Committee meeting to be held on Wednesday, 21 February 2018, in the boardroom on the 1st Floor at the Protea Assurance Building, Greenmarket Square, Cape Town and Starting at 09H30
