Lobeses’s Bitou Municipality pushes for top spot in ‘Mismanaged Municipal Rankings’March 13, 2019
The proposed development on Erf 4367 between Shell Ultra City (N2) and Santini Village on Bowtie Drive
In May 2017 notification was received that the Bitou Municipal Planning Tribunal were proposing to rezone and subdivide Erf 4367 to erect 80 single-story units on an erf size of 120m² at the main entrance to Plett. Objectors considered this proposal not to be in the best interests of the Plettenberg Bay.. Unless an aesthetically pleasing development is planned property values will be negatively affected, particularly those adjacent to the development. In addition as Plett is a town relying on tourist trade, consideration must also be given to the first impression visitors behold.
In spite of many objections being submitted to the Municipality, notice has now been served (Notice No. 62/2019 see attached which appeared in What’s New on Thursday 21 February) that Bitou Municipal Planning Tribunal has scheduled a meeting to be held in the Council Chambers on Wednesday 10 April at 09:00 to consider the rezoning, subdivision and departure of Erf 4367.
If you wish to make verbal representation to the Tribunal please submit a written request to Office No. 50 Melville’s Corner for attention of Chris Schlieman or per email to email@example.com no less than 14 days prior to the date of the Tribunal meeting.
For ease of reference please find attached the May 2017 “Objections to Bitou Proposed Subdivision and Rezoning of Erf 4367”.
Please communicate directly with the office of Chris Schlieman as per above should you have any questions. Enquiries can be directed to the Department: Strategic Services on 044 501 3324.
No doubt and emotive discussion and in light of our current land/ housing issues one that needs to be treated with a firm yet gentle hand. The real question may not be about development as previous seen but about who has the money and whos been paid to grease the cogs of that transaction.
The ratepayers continues to stand for what is best for Plettenberg Bay and the Rate Paying residents.
