Archaetnos cc was requested by Plan-Enviro CC to conduct a cultural heritage impact assessment on various portions of the farms Vaaldam Settlement 1777 and Uitkyk 506, located in the Frankfort and Heidelberg Districts of the Free State. The development of around 264 holiday residential units is planned on this property.
