Environmental Impact Assessment for a new regional landfill site to service the Cape Town Metropolitan Area for the next 30 years.


City of Cape Town


At the completion of the Supplementary Environmental Impact Report (SEIR) comments period, the comments received were collated and written responses provided on the new information introduced in the SEIR and/or where points of clarity were required.  In addition, this SEIR Comments Report provides copies of the public participation supporting documentation. Your attention is drawn to the fact that a small amount of new information has been introduced in the SEIR Comments Report (Volume 5).  As the final step in the SEIR process, the SEIR Comments Report has been made available for viewing purposes.  The Minister's office has requested that if anyone wishes to make any comments on the new information, those comments should be lodged at the Minister's office by no later than 19 April 2013.  Contact details are provided below:

This is the final step in the Supplementary process that Minister Bredell requested the City of Cape Town to undertake in December 2010.  As the City has now undertaken all the necessary requirements for the Supplementary process, the Minister is now required to make a decision about the regional landfill site.  It is assumed that the Minister will take the necessary steps to inform all relevant parties regarding his decision in due course. Copies of the SEIR Comments Report have been lodged at the following locations:

Cape Town Central Library (City Hall) OJ Erasmus Primary School (Kalbaskraal)
Wesfleur Library (Atlantis) Klipheuwel Primary School
Avondale Library (Atlantis) Tableview Library
