Client: Richmond Park Development Company (Pty) Ltd

Basic Assessment for the Proposed Establishment of a Fuel Station on Erf 38333, Milnerton

October 08, 2021

The applicant, the Richmond Park Development Company (RPDC), on behalf of the registered landowner, the Richmond Park Communal Property Association, is proposing to develop a fuel station on Erf 38333, located off Plattekloof Road, Milnerton, Cape Town. The proposed fuel station would be located within the Southern Precinct of the existing Richmond Park. While the RPDC is the applicant for the proposed project, it should be noted that the applicant would not be the developer of the fuel station. RPDC would either sell the property to a fuel station operator or maintain ownership and lease the property to an operator.

SLR Consulting (South Africa) (Pty) Ltd (SLR) has been appointed by the applicant as the independent Environmental Assessment Practitioner (EAP) to undertake the BA process for the proposed project. The BA process has been undertaken in terms of the relevant requirements of the EIA Regulations, 2014 (Government Notice (GN) No. R982, as amended by GN No. 326) promulgated in terms of the National Environmental Management Act, 1998 (No. 107 of 1998), as amended (NEMA).

Status

On 6 October 2021 DEA&DP issued Environmental Authorisation (EA) for the project.  The EA authorises the RPDC to undertake the activities as applied for.  The full EA is available for download below.  

The issuing of the EA is followed by a legislated appeal period.  The appeal procedure is set out in the below EA Notification Letter.  For information purposes, the final BAR is available for download below.
