Archaetnos cc was appointed by COZA Investments Pty Ltd to conduct a heritage impact assessment for a proposed residential development on the remainder of erf 197 and the remainder and portions 1-3 of erf 1289 in Waterkloof. This is in the City of Tshwane, Gauteng Province.
The project firstly entails the consolidation of the five erven (new erf no. 1318), then the demolition of existing buildings on the properties and hereafter a residential development. This consist of 40 units, combined into four levels as well as a parking area and landscaped gardens.
Only one of the existing buildings on the properties are older than 60 years, but has been adapted over the years to such an extent that it has no inherent heritage importance left. Also, nothing else of heritage importance was noted.
The applicable social consultation has also been done, consisting of site notices and newspaper advertisements. Comments were received and is addressed in the report. These however did not have any heritage concern.
The development may therefore continue. It is recommended that this HIA report be approved by the PHRA-G and that the demolition of the existing buildings on the five properties be approved.
