This</p><p>will include the construction of 64 single res-</p><p>idential units 30 double-storey terraced</p><p>residential units and 34 semi-detached sin-</p><p>gle storey dwellings and 72 apartments on</p><p>the property which borders Little Princess</p><p>Vlei. But the proposed development has</p><p>been met with concern from residents of</p><p>Heathfield, who held a community meeting</p><p>last Wednesday (1 May). A total of 104 resi-</p><p>dents attended the meeting to express their</p><p>concerns.</p><p>Speaking on behalf of residents, Sharna</p><p>Fernandez, says they are not against devel-</p><p>opment, but are concerned about the type of</p><p>development proposed. We found out about</p><p>the development by default, when a resident</p><p>saw the notice in the Cape Times in early</p><p>April, she says.</p><p>He then photocopied the notice and deliv-</p><p>ered it to all our postboxes. Since then we</p><p>have held twomeetings andmet with the de-</p><p>veloper at the end of March.</p><p>Some of the matters of concern expressed</p><p>at the meeting were the negative impact on</p><p>property prices and the impact on privacy.</p><p>The developmentwill also affect access and</p><p>egress for residents in Rochester Close and</p><p>will result in a change to the character of the</p><p>area, Fernandez says.</p><p>The level of densification (for the devel-</p><p>opment) is high and the portion and unit siz-</p><p>es are not in keepingwith that of other erven</p><p>in the area. We are also concerned about the</p><p>residents currently residing on the proper-</p><p>ty,whohavealready received evictionnotic-</p><p>es. They have nowhere to go. Those oppos-</p><p>ing the development will be lodging objec-</p><p>tions to the City, Fernandez says.</p><p>DNLs Howard Fisher says they were in-</p><p>troduced to the property in June last year.</p><p>After consulting with our engineers, town</p><p>planners and architects, we agreed to put in</p><p>a development proposal in September 2012,</p><p>he says.</p><p>We have submitted a rezoning and a sub-</p><p>division application (to the City), who have</p><p>no objections to our development with re-</p><p>gards to spatial planning, heritage, storm-</p><p>water, sewer and electricity capacity, trans-</p><p>port and planning, and environmental im-</p><p>pact.</p><p>Fisher says, pending outstanding applica-</p><p>tions, the development is planned to start in</p><p>May next year.</p><p>We envisage a complex with a high level</p><p>of security. There will be controlled access</p><p>with private roads and play areas, he says.</p><p>A clubhouse and swimming pool will add</p><p>to family environment we are hoping to fos-</p><p>ter. We are still considering the possibly of</p><p>a retirement village.</p><p>Fisher also says thedevelopmentwill offer</p><p>employment to more than 400 skilled and</p><p>semi-skilled construction workers.</p><p>The residents are within their rights to</p><p>raise objections. But what constitutes a val-</p><p>id objection? It is delegated to themunicipal-</p><p>ity to consider the objections in light of the</p><p>new spatial planning framework. We must</p><p>allow this process to run its course.</p><p>The Heathfield community will again</p><p>meet at the Trinity Methodist Church in Ro-</p><p>chester Road on Saturday 11 May at 15:00.</p><p>Call Fernandez on 0 (021) 712 2650.</p><p>VWhat are your views on the proposed housing devel</p><p>opment for Heathfield?
