A cultural heritage management plan for the Klapperkop Nature Reserve, City Of Tshwane


This document entails a cultural heritage resources management plan for the Klapperkop Nature Reserve. A number of nine cultural resources were found during a survey of the reserve. These all seem to have a military origin linked to the Anglo-Boer War. Some of these fall just outside of the fence of the reserve on the property of the City of Tshwane’s Fort Klapperkop Heritage Site. As these are associated with each other, it is appropriate to include all in this management plan.
These sites are discussed in the plan. 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 2018
