    Court todecideWaterfronts future

    LISE BEYERS

    ThefutureofthePaarlWaterfront

    may soon be determinedwhen the

    matter will be heard in the West-

    ernCapeHighCourton19August.

    A stormhas been brewing over the

    proposed Waterfront development

    on the banks of the Berg River in

    Paarl for many months now. The

    Drakenstein Heritage Foundation

    (DHF) and other concerned business

    owners served High Court papers on

    the Drakenstein Municipality, the

    Western Cape Government, the Wa-

    terfront developers and other in-

    volved parties, to stop this develop-

    ment.

    The Waterfront development was

    planned in 2007 when Paarl had

    hoped to be chosen as a 2010 World Cup base

    camp. Initial plans, which were approved

    very quickly by the DrakensteinMunicipali-

    ty,madeprovision fora sports centre, restau-

    rants and a retail/dcor centre aimed at the

    tourist market, a hotel, conference centre,

    gym and sports science institute.

    Paarl, however, was not chosen as a base

    campand it looked as if theWaterfront devel-

    opment had died togetherwith this prospect.

    It was, however, revived and according to

    information, plans have been redesigned to

    includeagiantshoppingmallandservicesta-

    tion.

    Anger erupted last year among Paarl busi-

    nessmen, when, at a council meeting, both

    DA andANC councillors unanimously voted

    to give the developers occupation of the sport

    fields,without anypublic participationproc-

    ess.

    This move then fuelled the court applica-

    tion against the development.

    The court application states, among other

    arguments, that a development of this size

    hastobeapprovedbyHeritageWesternCape,

    which was not done. There is also objection

    to the removal of the title-deed restrictions,

    as the land use was restricted to community

    use only, based upon a long historical associ-

    ation. In general, the opposing parties feel

    that the proposed development is

    thus unlawful.

    Drakenstein mayor, Gesie van

    Deventer, said that although the

    matter will soon be discussed in

    court, themunicipalityisstill indis-

    cussion with the applicants in the

    lawsuit in an attempt to achieve a

    settlement.

    A settlement may hasten the fu-

    ture development of the land, she

    said.

    I have already received two peti-

    tions from communities of Paarl

    East that the development should

    continue. Through this develop-

    ment, over 6 000 new employment

    opportunities could be created.

    If the business people succeed in

    preventing the development, this

    will also mean that R30 million will

    be lost for sports development at the Boy

    Louw sport fields, as well as new roads, in-

    cluding the widening of the Marlet Street

    bridge andmoney for the development of the

    Ou Kraal.

    She also added that the sport clubs reloca-

    tion and development as part of the proposed

    development depend on the outcome of the

    proceedings.

    Regardless ofwhether a settlement canbe

    negotiated successfully ornot, after thehear-

    ingof thecasebythecourton19August, there

    will then, hopefully, be final certainty as to

    the future of the Paarl Waterfront develop-

    ment.

    The future of Paarl Waterfront may soon be determined.

    Man vas vir inbrake by spoggastehuis

    MARYKE SWART

    n Jong man wat vermoedelik verantwoorde-

    lik is vir inbrake by n gastehuis in die Paarl,

    is onlangs in hegtenis geneem toe hy met n

    platskerm-televisie op sy fiets gevang is.

    Die 24-jarige afleweringspersoon van n res-

    taurant op die dorp, het Woensdag 16 Julie in

    die Paarl-landdroshof op aanklagte van huis-

    braak en diefstal verskyn.

    Hy het na bewering aan polisielede ges hy

    het by n vriend gaan videospeletjies speel en

    was op pad huis toe.

    Polisielede het hom na sy woonplek verge-

    sel.
