A report on a heritage impact assessment for the proposed Blue Hills Development on portion 42 of the farm Blue Hills 397 JR, Johannesburg, Gauteng ProvinceSummary

Archaetnos cc was appointed by tv3 Architects and Town Planners to conduct a heritage impact assessment for the proposed Blue Hills Development. This is on portion 42 of the farm Blue Hills 397 JR, in the City of Johannesburg Park Station, Gauteng Province.
The project entails the subdivision of the property in order to be utilized for a light industrial
and commercial development. Details of the development is not yet available, but an HIA is
required due to the proposed subdivision of the property (Figure 4-6).
The fieldwork undertaken revealed that there is nothing of heritage significance on the site.
The site is currently used by Rainbow Chicken as a chicken broiler facility and all structures
are younger than 60 years. The entire site has also been disturbed by recent human activities.
This report is seen as ample mitigation and no further action is needed. The development may therefore continue.
The applicable social consultation has also been done, consisting of site notices and newspaper advertisements. No comments were received.

It is therefore recommended that the HIA be approved.
