For the urgent attention of all residents of Glenanda South

An application has been submitted for a residential township in the Glenanda and Glenvista area, Johannesburg. The property is located to the east of Klip River Drive, also bordering Klip River Drive. Access is gained to the site from Van Beek Avenue. The Klip River Drive and Van Beek Avenue intersection is located 100 m to the west of the northern boundary. Bordering the site on the northwestern corner is a Virgin Active fitness centre. To the west, on the other side of Klip River Drive, is the Klipriviersberg Nature Reserve. The proposed residential development is planned with a density of 90-95 units per hectare, on Portion 86 of the Farm Rietvlei 101 IR. The development will also entail an educational facility near the access to the site.

In our opinion, this application should be strongly opposed and by ALL residents for, among others, the following reasons:

• The Glenanda School cannot accept more children as it is already full to capacity.

• Our suburb will be used as a throughway and all roads will become far busier.

• At the intersection of Rolene and Glen Road, during peak periods, vehicles already battle to enter onto Van Beek.

• Maintenance of roads are already poor and cannot handle increased volumes of vehicles.

• Water and sanitation infrastructure is already under severe pressure.

• This area is in a green belt.

• Klipriviersberg Nature Reserve will be affected.

• Flora and fauna will suffer.

• Taxi ranks are known points of extra litter. Pikitup already gives no attention to existing concrete dustbin in Vorster Avenue. Community participation in opposing this matter, is of the utmost importance for each and every home owner – for obvious reasons.
