PLETTENBERG BAY NEWS FLASH - A massive wave of opposition to the controversial Plettenberg Bay small boat harbour development is building yet again after the proposal reared its head recently.
 
The proposed R4-billion project by Western Cape Marina Investments – earmarked for the Piesang River estuary and along the town’s popular Central Beach – was thought to have been an issue of the past when the initial scoping report was rejected by the Western Cape Department of Environmental Affairs and Development Planning two years ago.
 
After two appeals to submit an amended and compliant report for the development – which was set to include 482 residential units, 1 343m2 of office space, a 110-room 5-star hotel, mansions, 8 700m2 of retail space, a plaza, a yacht club and more than 2 000 parking bays – the department on December 14, gave developers a new deadline for re-submission.
 
Developers now have until February 1, 2017 for the file the necessary documents.
 
Since the latest development in the saga came to light recently, social media platforms have been abuzz with residents voicing their concern and talks are underway to revive a committee which initially opposed the development.
