KRRA call for funding to support legal challenge to City to oppose development

The Kommetjie Residents and Ratepayers Association (KRRA) has started High Court review proceedings to halt major plans for new housing in the village. Megan Adderley of the firm Webber Wentzel, consulting attorney for the KRRA, has lodged a 140 page founding affidavit with the City’s legal department and the developer Redcliff Properties.

The KRRA’s main argument is that in approving this 107 house development the City acted irrationally, ignoring the requirement of the Southern District Plan for sufficient regional infrastructure to be in place before such approvals. This includes roads like Ou Kaapse Weg.

KRRA has so far raised R130,000.00 in Kommetjie and the valley which has covered legal costs so far. However the KRRA now waits to hear the defendants’ responses. If the City insists on opposing the application, this could become expensive and require further fundraising.

The KRRA are therefore looking for more fundraising support from the Far South.

If you’d like to donate, the account details are:

KRRA, Standard Bank,

Fish Hoek 036009,

Acc Nr 374221065.

Many other civic bodies in Cape Town are experiencing similar problems – not having their voice heard, tick-box processes and strong development above-all approach from the municipality irrespective of stated community needs. Not right.
