A REPORT ON A HERITAGE IMPACT ASSESSMENT FOR PROPOSED STUDENT ACCOMMODATION ON ERVEN 440/0 AND 441/0, HATFIELD, CITY OF TSHWANE, GAUTENG PROVINCE
Archaetnos cc was appointed by the Housing Corporation South Africa to conduct a heritage impact assessment for a proposed development on 440/0 and 441/0, Hatfield, Pretoria. The respective addresses for the two adjacent erven are Prospect Street 1267 and 1279. This is in the City of Tshwane, Gauteng Province.
The project firstly entails the demolution of all buildings currently on the properties. Thereafter student accommodation will be erected.
Some of the buildings are older than 60 years but has been adapted over the years. Resultantly it has limited heritage significance and none of the buildings are pristine. In fgact the buildings are in an extremely bad state of repair and should thus rather be demolished.
The applicable social consultation has also been done, consisting of site notices and newspaper advertisements. No comments were received.
The development may therefore continue. It is recommended that this HIA report be approved by the PHRA-G.
