A cultural heritage management plan for the Strubenkop Nature Reserve, City of Tshwane


This document entails a cultural heritage resources management plan for the Strubenkop Nature Reserve. Only one cultural resource was found during a survey of the reserve. This is the remains of a British fort, built during the Anglo-Boer War (1899-1902).

The remains date to the historical period in time. It is evaluated and assessed in terms of the standard criteria for cultural heritage resources.

Management guidelines are given. These are the basic conservation and preservation principles to be used in managing cultural resources. Recommendations made in the document are done within the parameters of the National Heritage Resources Act (25 of 1999).

The management plan is an open document meaning that it should be adapted and reassessed from time to time. A continuation period of at least five years is given. However any developments done before the expiry of the five year period should be used to re-evaluate the impact on cultural resources and to make the necessary adaptations to the document. The five year period ends in 2016.
