Dear Interested and Affected Parties,

The EAP (Environmental Assessment Practitioner) will be meeting with the developer, the specialists who did the ecological reports, the town planner and architect this week and next week.  The purpose of the meetings is to assess the results of the specialist studies and also the traffic impact assessment that was done and how it affects the development potential of the site.  That together with site restrictions such as flood lines, building lines, servitudes and services requirements, will be used to determine a site development footprint plan (potential development areas taking sensitivities and other restrictions into account) onto which two or three alternative development proposals will be planned/designed. That may take another two or three weeks.  The results of everything including proposed development alternatives as well as comments from interested parties and responses thereto will be included in a draft Basic Assessment Report that will be made available for comment to interested and affected parties by the end of October 2016.

In other words, there is no finalised  layout proposal yet.  The exact residential typology and target market is also still under consideration.

At this point, a private combined primary and high school catering for ± 1700 to 2000 students is also being considered as a possible (a long shot) alternative development for the site.  Before it can be decided on as a potential alternative, further feasibility work however needs to be done.

We will keep you informed of progress.  You are also welcome to make proposals or suggestions in respect to how you would like the site to be developed.
