A report on a heritage impact assessment for the proposed consolidation of Erven 269 and 272 in Volksrust, Mpumalnga Province
Archaetnos cc was appointed by Urban Dynamics Town and Regional Planners to conduct a cultural heritage impact assessment (HIA) for the proposed consolidation of erven 269 and 272 in Volksrust. This is located in the Mpumalanga Province.
The fieldwork undertaken revealed no sites of cultural heritage significance. Buildings on the premises are all younger than 60 years or have been changed to such an extent that the original has been severely compromised. These mostly are also in a bad state of decay. Therefore no mitigation is required and the project may continue.
Note should also be taken that all archaeological and historical sites may not have been identified as it is possible that subterranean archaeological sites may be found later on. On identification of these it needs to be dealt with by an archaeologist.
