A report on a Phase 1 heritage impact assessment (HIA) for the proposed Derdepoort Park x 24, x 25 and x 28 to the North of Pretoria, Gauteng Province


Archaetnos cc was appointed by Landscape Dynamics to conduct a heritage impact assessment relating to cultural heritage resources for the proposed development called Derdepoort Park X 24, X 25 and X 28. This is situated to the north of Pretoria in the Gauteng Province.

The fieldwork undertaken revealed no sites of cultural heritage significance. The area is largely disturbed by past human activities such as agriculture, light industries and residential development.

The proposed development may therefore continue and this report is seen as ample mitigation in this regard. However one should always bear in mind that archaeological may be unearthed during construction activities. In such a case an archaeologist should immediately be called in to investigate.
